Sex, Drugs and Bitcoin: Vice vs Virtue Investing

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Sex, drugs and rock-n-roll. And Bitcoin. The sin funds of old are being reimagined for the digital age.
Does Redtube on your smartphone make you a better lover? Is Bitcoin a libertarian utopia or salvation for the world’s poor? Is Spotify disrupting music’s old guard or killing creativity? Investors vote with dollars, and their answers to these questions shape our reality.
Hear from two of technology’s best along with provocateur Cindy Gallop as they open up about the bare-knuckle, backroom dealings of the venture capital world and whether one can attain virtue on a path littered with vice. Their frank discussions on crazy startup pitches, deals gone sideways, plus one-upmanship with other firms will shed light on the thin line between sin and salvation. Hear how the ruthless pursuit of returns makes it possible to stream free porn while legally toking up on an entirely different kind of Girl Scout Cookies.
