DESCRIPTION

 

Notice: Event date changed from July 12, the new date is July 19.

 

Startups spring up like mushrooms, and also wither away even faster than it took them to start. Of the few of those that survive, even fewer make it to become successful. With the prevalence of fraudulent schemes and scams in today's modern investments, how do investors know what to look for in blockchain startup investing? Are there early signs that a startup is likely to succeed or fail?

 

Join us as Jeremy Gardner and Bá Minuzzi take us through the world of blockchain startup investing. Jeremy and Bá have quite a track record in the blockchain industry both individually and as a team. Jeremy founded and co-founded several global organizations namely the Blockchain Education Network, Augur, SAAVHA, and is also instrumental in raising millions of funds for some of the most successful ICOs in the industry. Bá also made a name for herself by single-handedly raising over 0M for real estate and high-tech companies in Latin America and the United States. She also co-manages over 0M in assets. She is the founder of BABEL Ventures, the first venture firm in Silicon Valley with a Latina founder and sole GP.

 

Together, Jeremy and Bá founded the company Ausum Ventures, a hybrid venture-hedge fund which aims to promote social change through blockchain technology. We will surely learn a lot from their first-hand experience in raising startups.

 

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

He most recently worked as an entrepreneur-in-residence and investor at Blockchain Capital, where he sourced over a half dozen investments and helped structure the firm's landmark security token ICO, $BCAP. Gardner also co-founded the GDPR compliance company, SAAVHA, and served as the founding editor of Distributed magazine. Today, Jeremy runs Ausum Ventures, a hybrid venture-hedge fund, and advises many Fortune 500s, as well as the EU Parliament on this emerging technology. He is often cited in the press surrounding blockchain technology.
