Breakout Session 2: ICOs as an Alternative to Venture Capital?

Entrepreneurs and venture capitalists are increasingly intrigued by the possibility that ICOs might evolve to become a financing source that avoids or reduces the need to engage with traditional VCs in traditional VC-style financings. This session explores developments in the ICO market and considers whether ICOs are, or can become, a material threat to the traditional VC model. The discussion implicates complex questions relating to legal regimes, financing structures, and the evolution of blockchain technology.
