Quantopian's Forward Thinking Thesis: There is Quantitative Talent Everywhere
Quantopian are firm believers that talent is universally distributed across the globe while opportunity is not. At the same time, the demand for talent, quantitative talent in particular, has dramatically increased across a wide range of business sectors.
Quantopian seeks to level the playing field by offering an online platform of educational content, community, data, an intuitive algorithmic trading API, and hosted backtesting service, all for free. Members from all backgrounds learn by researching and creating investment strategies. Members own what they create and get paid if their work turns out to be among the best.The result: more than 140,000 people from 180 countries have joined the Quantopian community, testing more than 7 million strategies and, in the process, disrupting the traditional hedge fund and investment management business model.
Join Quantopian and speaker Dr. Jess Stauth, Quantopian's Managing Director on the Investment Team, in exploring these topics. For more information, and to register for this event, visit the Meetup!
