Applicature’s Panel Discussion “Venture Capital vs. ICO” Taking Place in Silicon Valley


“VC vs. ICO” is gathering venture capital investors and representatives from crypto hedge funds to gain insight into blockchain technology.


We are pleased to announce “VC vs. ICO,” a panel discussion for those seriously considering launching an Initial Coin Offering (ICO) to raise money for their startup instead of a traditional angle or VC series. The event will take place on February 28th, 2018 at BootUp Ventures (68 Willow Rd., Menlo Park, CA 94025).

Tickets are available at Eventbrite. Don’t forget to provide your ETH address at ticket form. Applicature ICO clients will give each attendee AirDrop worth $100!

VC vs. ICO

Our panel discussion will cover the pros and cons of one option vs. the other. Our panelists have been successful with both sides of the debate, and can share their tips, processes, and pitfalls.

More than 1,500 ICOs have been created as of February 2018. The total valuation of all cryptocurrency has reached $320 billion today. If you had invested $100 in Bitcoin in 2011, that Bitcoin would be worth over $2.5 million today.

This event aims to elucidate our investigations and observations regarding different types of ICO launches and venture capital campaigns. Our leading professionals in blockchain technology will share their experiences and constructive ideas. This event will be profitable for VC owners curious about crypto investments, crypto hedge funds investing in ICO companies, industry leaders (enterprises) and startup entrepreneurs looking for blockchain solutions to fund their idea, developers curious about blockchain development, and so on.
