Description

2018.......Still Melbourne's premier Angel networking event

Build your business and your investment portfolio by getting close to the people who make a difference!!

This is a networking lunch for you. We welcome everyone to join in the conversation. This is Angel investing Melbourne-style - it is fun, informative, friendly and a great precursor to the more serious times when we are reviewing deals and chasing exits for our founders.

Melbourne Angels invests in 20+ deals a year which puts it up there with the more active Angel groups in the world. Our members are professional and courteous in their conduct, impassioned and experienced in their pursuit of success for our portfolio companies, diverse and engaging in their areas of interest and intellectual horsepower.

This is your chance to get to know us, discover new trends, share your own experiences and explore how engaging with us as a member, or as a portfolio company can help change your life.

Our Speaker

ICO or SCO or TSO? Problems, challenges, and opportunities of blockchain capital raising after the shakeout

Dr Brent Coker is an academic at the University of Melbourne. His PhD is in information systems. He has been researching blockchain and cryptocurrencies since 2013. Brent is founding chair of the Unimelb startup competition, had a dot-com in the late 90’s, and is inventor of the web analytics app Webreep.

December – January 2018 saw the peak of blockchain-mania. The ease of raising millions through “utility tokens” created the financial wild west, with unscrupulous speculators and questionable business models. In this talk I outline the problems, challenges, and opportunities of blockchain capital raising, and the likelihood of acquisition led growth moving forward.

What to Expect

Share in impassioned conversation about all things early-stage over good food. We introduce to you a key opinion leader from within the eco-system who will address the diners and then field your queries.
