Although he was a college dropout, Neil Hirsch was able to use his intellect to become one of the biggest trendsetters in the financial service industry. When he was only 21, Neil Hirsch was able to raise enough capital to build a global communications network. The network he designed in 1969, Telerate, revolutionized the service industry with his innovative financial information service that provided a securities process for the international currency and bond markets. Always ahead of his time, Neil Hirsch’s remarkable, globally networked infrastructure terminals helped usher in the age of electronic networking. For over two decades, Neil Hirsch helped make Telerate one of the most powerful companies in the financial information sector, eventually selling the company to Dow Jones in 1990 for 1.5 billion dollars.
