Event: Unprecedented Times – Unprecedented Opportunities
Mike Milken has always believed the process of value creation is the same whether creating a new paradigm for medical research – Fortune magazine called him “The Man Who Changed Medicine” – pioneering innovative approaches to education or creating jobs by financing growing companies.
In each case, he tries to empower the most talented people and encourage them to pursue their passions. “It always involves more than just writing checks,” he says. “It takes an entrepreneurial approach.” In a dynamic multimedia presentation, Milken will weave together the “three great democratizations” of the 21st century: access to capital, to knowledge, and to health.
