Drew “Bo” Brownstein knows an opening when he sees one. He saw one when his workout buddy whispered something about one energy company buying another whose board his father just happened to sit on. And, four months in the pokey for that opportunity seized under his belt, he sees another.

A former hedge fund manager who served a four-month prison term for insider trading is the driving force behind the first Fantasy Sports Combine in Las Vegas, a three-day event where players can be tutored by the industry’s top analysts, former athletes and championship-winning coaches….

“I made a decision that I’d really pursue something I was as passionate about as I was being in the investing world,” he said, without disclosing the initial investment in the event. “But I couldn’t have done this alone. We built a strong team and went at it full sprint. When you see the opening, you better run through it while you still have the chance.”
