Beast | Investing in Blockchain and Cryptocurrencies
An Exclusive Full Day Workshop For Investors

"Disruptive Technology is often overvalued in the short term yet undervalued in the long-term."

Investment in the space of blockchain and cryptocurrencies has taken off in the past two years, with Initial Coin Offerings ( ICO ) raising more money than early-stage venture capital during the same period. The reality of this space is that investing in blockchain companies and cryptocurrencies is just different from traditional startup investment. It upends traditional venture capital - it is global, and blockchain enables opportunities for liquidity and alternative investment strategies that did not exist before in conventional early stage investment.

Investing in blockchain and cryptocurrencies requires investors to take an entirely different approach to reviewing investment opportunities. Venture capital is evolving, and so are the ways investors see returns. From pre-sale to equity investments, we will evaluate the pros, cons, and signals to consider when investing in this space.

Beast: Investing in Blockchain and Cryptocurrencies - a full-day investor workshop aims to demystify investing in this evolving space and provide a sober look at investment opportunities. We want to give investors a deep dive into the critical aspects of investing in blockchain and cryptocurrencies, along with tools and community to analyze investment opportunities in such projects.

This event is for family offices, angel investors, institutional investors interested in investing in Blockchain and cryptocurrencies. Attendees of this event will gain confidence in their ability to evaluate investment opportunities and join a new network of peers to engage in this space together.  It's an exclusive event for those who take investing seriously.
