Blockchain’s Answer to QuickBooks, AI-Enhanced Shirts that Check Vital Signs, and a Bridge Between US and China Capital Markets
The past couple of weeks have been a whirlwind as our team prepares for not one, but two conferences during the week of April 7 in downtown Los Angeles. Ambitious? Yes. But we’re BEYOND excited to show you the evolution and spirit of our community.
We grew from a 6,000 attendee event led by keynote speaker and Apple co-founder, Steve Wozniak, to a global community with a 30,000 + following between our podcast, newsletter, and social media following. It has been such an amazing and humbling journey so far, and we want to thank every single one of you. Our strong community foundation is one of the reasons Inc. called our event 1 of “20 Conferences You Can’t Miss in 2019.”
Join the industry experts, emerging talent, and the most influential companies in crowdfunding this April 7-10 as we host not one but two conferences in downtown Los Angeles. (By the way, Security Token Summit will probably sell out by the end of this week, so get your tickets now because the cap is limited to 500 attendees). Without further ado…
