Join us for a Lunch and Learn event with Pascal Levensohn, a San Francisco-based venture capitalist and technology entrepreneur. Pascal’s career started on Wall Street in the early 1980s as a risk arbitrageur at the First Boston Corporation. Today, with over 32 years of experience as a finance professional and 18 years as a venture capitalist, he returns to New York to share his thoughts on high risk investing from the perspective of seed investors in start-ups. An expert on corporate governance, Pascal has lectured extensively on venture capital topics at universities around the world, and he co-authored a Chinese college textbook on venture capital in 2011. Pascal co-founded his most recent venture, the digital media company LittleCast, in December 2012. He served on the board of the National Venture Capital Association from 2007-2011. Pascal is a graduate of Harvard University and is a member of the council on Foreign Relations. You can expect a lively discussion with plenty of time for questions and answers.
