VIKRAM RANGALA taught writing and communication at the University of Florida for 15 years. He has traded futures and options for 12 years. During a painful time of professional transition and personal transformation, he worked to channel his passions, skills, and challenges into something positive. After tasting humiliation and hardship, he studied the greater suffering of others and the economic and societal cost of oppressing and undervaluing billions of people, especially girls, rather than investing in them. Recently, he started The Girl Fund Project, the world's first nonprofit hedge fund, which will change the profit motive and give 100% of profits to help girls living in extreme poverty and violence. He will speak about the personal process of starting his experiment in a new capitalism: honest, compassionate, and worthy of our dignity.
