Michael Bloomberg and a Chicago flutist
September 19th, 2017
Jennifer Zhang, founder and president of Chicago-based Jeneration Capital investment firm, is in New York for the Bloomberg Global Business Forum.
Bloomberg founder Michael Bloomberg, business magnate Jack Ma and the Prince of Saudi Arabia will be there, too. As interested as she is in the summit’s financial wonkiness, Zhang will be there to perform. She plays the Chinese flute.
The Shanghai native holds an economics degree from Northwestern University and music degrees from Berklee College of Music in Boston and China’s Central Conservatory of Music.
Earlier in the summer, Zhang won the Miss China International crown in Beijing and also competed in Miss International, where she won the popular vote in an online poll.
