On Wednesday, February 7th, in an effort to bring the best investment ideas to its clients, Big Sur Partners, the multi-family office founded in 2007 and headquartered in Miami, together with NYU Stern University, will hold a reception cocktail and the subsequent presentation of the book "The Four: The Hidden DNA of Amazon, Apple, Facebook and Google", by its author, Professor Scott Galloway.
The event will be the first of a series of presentations in which Big Sur Partners will present some of the best academics, experts and leaders in different segments and industries.
“We are honored to co-host this event with NYU Stern given our commitment to collaborating with the greatest minds across our network. We internally created the “BigSur Intelligence Unit”, in which we strive to find the best ideas throughout academia, industry experts, leading family offices and other stakeholders across financial markets. We believe it is important to always look at the world from different points of view and to listen closely to innovative thinkers,” said Ignacio Pakciarz, Economist, Founder and CEO at Big Sur Parnters.
Scott Galloway is a Professor of Marketing at NYU Stern University, where he teaches Brand Strategy and Digital Marketing to second-year MBA students. In addition, he is the author of the Digital IQ index, a global ranking of prestige brands' digital competence. He is also a writer and entrepreneur, founding L2, Red Envelop and Phrophet; and has participated in the boards of Eddie Bauer, The New York Times Company, Gateway Computer, and Berkeley's Haas School of Business. He received a BA from UCLA and an MBA from UC Berkeley.
“We are excited about this event given that we consider Professor Galloway’s thoughts on regulation to be very interesting, and perhaps even radical for a technologist and advocate of free markets. His idea on regulation as the only means to protect innovation is an interesting stand on the argument. As investors in the creative economy, we believe this event is valuable for understanding the cultures of these tech giants and how they operate, as well as the implications regulation may have on both the equity and Venture capital markets”, concluded Ignacio Pakciarz.
