Anthony Scaramucci

Former White House Communications Director & Founder of SkyBridge Capital

Though perhaps best-known for his tenure as White House Communications Director, Anthony Scaramucci is an award-winning investor, entrepreneur, lawyer, and author. The son of a construction worker, Scaramucci got his start in finance at Goldman Sachs after graduating from Harvard Law School. He spent 7 years at the firm before venturing out on his own, co-founding both the investment partnership Oscar Capital Management in 1996 as well as the global investment firm SkyBridge Capital in 2005. In a wide-ranging, honest, and often humorous talk, Scaramucci discusses the lessons he’s learned from his years at the top of the global financial industry, how he applies those lessons to investing and entrepreneurship, and what’s next for one of the year’s most talked about public figures.
