You're invited to an unforgettable dinner with 2020 US Presidential Candidate Andrew Yang and Business Insider Executive Editor Matt Turner. Enjoy an intimate conversation with Andrew and Matt, curated connections, a business challenge and pitch off... over a seasonal meal.
Andrew Yang is an entrepreneur and author running for President as a Democrat in 2020. In 2011 he founded Venture for America, a national entrepreneurship fellowship, and spent the last 6 years creating jobs in cities like Cleveland, Detroit, Baltimore, and Pittsburgh. When Andrew realized that new technology like artificial intelligence threatened to eliminate one-third of all American jobs, he knew he had to do something. In The War on Normal People (2018), he explains the mounting crisis and makes the case for implementing a universal basic income: $1,000 a month for every American adult, no strings attached.
Matt Turner is the Executive Editor at Business Insider. He reports to the US Editor in Chief, and is the newsroom leader of PRIME, Business Insider's subscription offering.
He was previously the US editor at Dow Jones-owned title Financial News. Matt's work has appeared in The Wall Street Journal in Europe and the US and on WSJ Moneybeat.
