Welcome to the first edition of the MSc Ivey Finance & Technology Club (MIFTC) speaker series where MIFTC leaders connect with leaders in finance and technology to highlight major trends as well as tips for students on how to make the most of their career.

  • Where blockchain creates value and how it brings businesses and people closer to The Archetype of 1
  • Assessing career decisions throughout life and how to determine whether you’re ready to pursue a riskier but more fulfilling career path
  • How to stand out when networking for finance roles
  • And much more!

The MIFTC would like to extend a huge thank you to Alex and Montaek for sharing a tremendous amount of detail through their conversation and providing a small peak down the rabbit hole that is the blockchain and finance industry.
