Stuy Alumni in Silicon Valley: Bram Cohen ’93

Are you a Pegleg now living in the Bay Area? Join us for an after-hours Stuy Alumni networking event at Bloomberg Beta in San Francisco!

In accord with Bloomberg Beta’s mission as an early-stage venture capital firm committed to investing in companies that make business work better, Maria Kiskis ’94 will interview BitTorrent creator Bram Cohen ’93.

Cohen is a computer programmer, best known as the author of the peer-to-peer (P2P) BitTorrent protocol, and the first file-sharing program to use the protocol, also known as BitTorrent. He is also the co-founder of CodeCon and organizer of the San Francisco Bay Area P2P hackers meeting, and was the co-author of Codeville.

Kiskis is a seasoned business executive with 20 years of experience in corporate strategy, business development, and general management in organizations spanning all stages of the business life-cycle. She is currently an advisor at Venture/Science, a multi-family office investment platform.

Food and drinks will be provided, and there will be time to reconnect, network and get to know other Stuyvesant alumni in the Bay Area.

Register for free on the Stuyvesant Mafia in Silicon Valley Meetup page.

See you there,

Dr. Lillian Seu ’01, SHSAA Director and Roy Bahat ’94, Head of Bloomberg Beta
