The Highs and Lows of Being a First-Time Founder

Date TBA

Are you a current or aspiring founder? Do you want to break into the startup world but don’t know how? Are you workshopping an idea or facing a challenge but unclear of what the next step is? These are all questions that Flori Marquez, Founder & Head of Operations at BlockFi, had earlier in her career prior to joining Bond Street, an alternative lending fintech startup that was eventually acquired by Goldman Sachs. After Bond Street, Flori went on to co-found BlockFi, a global crypto fintech startup. This candid conversation will cover how to navigate the highs & lows of being a first-time founder and early-stage startup employee including how to overcome unexpected challenges and market volatility, build resilient products & teams, find a mentor, and harness your ambitions.
