NFTs & the Future of Music, Art, and Brands

November 5 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

| TIGER Talk

Please register by 10 pm on Thu Nov 4.
At 11 pm, we’ll email you a Zoom link to access LIVESTREAM the next day.

In this TIGER Talk, our presenter Rob Richardson will explain what NFTs (non-fungible tokens) are and how they’re disrupting the art and entertainment industry. In 2021 alone, NFTs have become a multi-billion dollar industry, changing how creators engage and monetize their work and how brands interact with customers. Learn about the emerging trends and the growing opportunities in the NFT space.


Rob Richardson is the founder of Disruption Now Media, a platform that connects black and brown entrepreneurs, artists, and leaders through interactive events, educational content, podcasts, virtual and in-person summits. Richardson has also founded a new NFT platform, an ecosystem and marketplace where artists, activists and allies intersect to revolutionize the impact of art to build a more equitable and sustainable future.

Disruption Now Media hosts conversational podcasts with disruptors focused on impact. Past guests have included: NY Times bestselling author Robert Greene, Monique Woodard, Jewel Burks Solomon of Google Startups and Collab Capital, and Arlan Hamilton of BackStage Capital.

Rob is the former Chairman of the University of Cincinnati (UC) Board of Trustees, the youngest person ever to serve in this role. During Rob’s tenure as Chairman, he led the establishment of The 1819 Innovation Hub where industry and talent collaborate to spark groundbreaking ideas. Previously at UC, Rob earned both his Law Degree (JD) and his Bachelor of Science Degree (BS) in Electrical Engineering.
