SBIA Welcomes Keynote Speaker, Isaac Lidsky
2019 National Summit for Middle Market Funds
Small Business Investor Alliance (SBIA) is excited to welcome Isaac Lidsky, a well-respected author, speaker, and entrepreneur, as the Tuesday keynote speaker for the 2019 National Summit for Middle Market Funds. Scheduled to present on the morning of October 8th, Lidsky will discuss Lead is to Listen – A Unique Perspective on Building Strong Teams.
Over the years, he has been a child television star (he played series regular “Weasel” on NBC’s “Saved By The Bell: The New Class”), a Supreme Court clerk (for Justices Sandra Day O’Connor and Ruth Bader Ginsburg), and the co-founder of an internet startup.”
Lidsky graduated from Harvard at 19 with an honors degree in mathematics and computer science. He then founded [x+1] , which was later acquired for $230 million. Fascinated by the burgeoning field of “cyberlaw,” Lidsky left [x+1] and returned to Harvard to attend law school, graduating magna cum laude in 2004 as Editor of the Harvard Law Review and the only student named a Fellow of the Berkman Center for Internet & Society. As a U.S. Justice Department lawyer, Lidsky argued more than a dozen appeals in federal court on behalf of the United States and never lost a case. Along the way, he founded Hope For Vision, a nonprofit organization to fund the development of treatments for blinding diseases and within 5 years grew it to a dozen cities nationwide and more than $5 million.
In 2016 Lidsky set out to share with others his empowering approach to living and leading, and he was promptly recognized as a visionary thought leader. Penguin Random House acquired for publication his first book, Eyes Wide Open, and it hit the shelves as a New York Times best seller in March 2017. TED invited Lidsky to present a mainstage TED Talk at TEDSUMMIT 2016 in Banff, Canada, and it was viewed more than a million times in its first 20 days. Lidsky now consults and speaks to organizations around the world on issues including leadership, accountability and self-empowerment.
In 2018 Lidsky returned to his software development roots, founding Senary Blockchain Ventures to develop new web infrastructure using blockchain and related technologies.
