NYC VCs, Angels and ICOsThursday, January 25, 2018
2:00pm - 6:00pm

ICOs raised a global record 1.1 billion dollars in December 2017 alone according to TokenMarket. That's HUGE, but what exactly does that mean? Can anyone do an ICO? Should everyone? and what exactly is an ICO anyway?
This conference will bring together VCs, Angel Investors, Family offices, and Entrepreneurs to discuss what's going on in the world of blockchain and ICOs.
We will have panel discussions of investors in the space, fireside chats with companies going through an ICO, networking and exhibitors. This event will give you an let you know exactly how these ICOs work, how companies are taking advantage of them, what laws surround them, and how Investors are getting involved.
The Investor panel will discuss trends in Early-Stage Investing, hot sectors, sectors that Angels and VCs look at, things that are most important to them when they are considering an Investment, the best and worst things an entrepreneur can do to get their attention, additional advice for entrepreneurs considering an ICO, and, of course, the best ways to reach these and other Investors. The second panel will have companies currently running an ICO discussing their strategy, differences, best practices and how the process is working.
There will be plenty of time for networking with the Investor panelists, both before and after the panels at the Cocktail Party!
We have a few sponsorship opportunities available as well. Contact us for details.
