ICOs have probably been the biggest disrupter of venture capital over the past year. As such, it is no surprise that regulators are trying to assess this new trend, in order to secure potential investors from what may be perceived as the new digital Wild West.

France’s market regulator, the AMF, launched a consultation in December 2017 to gather the inputs from all players - from institutional investors to up-and-coming startups. While it is still uncertain how the regulatory landscape will evolve and how it will be influenced by the self-proclaimed “start up nation” ambitions, we will discuss with key players on the French market how they see the future of ICOs going forward

We hope you can make it to this event and feel free to spread the word.

This event is FREE for Business Members.
