Innovation and Entrepreneurship Club Welcomes Manning Field (COO of Acorns)

Tuesday, February 12 at 6:30pm to 7:30pm

Lillis Business Complex, Room 132
955 E 13th Ave, Eugene, OR

Join the Innovation and Entrepreneurship Club in welcoming Manning Field, the chief operations officer of Acorns, a business where you can invest your spare change automatically. This money is aggregated and invested over time, so when you're old and wrinkly you'll have tons of savings, saved up over time. For example, say you buy a cup of coffee for $3.80, Acorns rounds it up to $4.00 and the remaining $0.20 is put into your Acorns savings account, where it's then put into bonds/stocks. Over time these purchases add up and you're left with a nice chunk of change. This will be a live interview conducted by David Freiburger and he'll be taking audience questions as well. There may also be pizzzzzzza! Maybe.
