Rebounding Financially After COVID-19

Day two of our three day conference features an impressive panel of financial & entrepreneurial experts, who will guide attendees through strategies and opportunities that will help position young professionals for a successful financial rebound after this historic pandemic. 

This moderated panel will explore topics related to tips and tricks for rolling over your 401K if you've been laid off due to COVID-19, investment strategies, and how to start a business in a financially challenged climate. With the impending legalization of cannabis in New York State, we will also feature a seasoned professional in the cannabis industry, who will provide insight into how to successfully get started in this industry. Come prepared with specific questions and get ready to take your business idea to the next level, or set a path to achieve your financial goals!
