Executive Brief

The World Funding Summit will attract some of the brightest minds in the world of alternative finance as they gather for a two-day conference in Los Angeles on November 17 and 18, 2017.  Among them, Alan Yong, Co-Founder of DNotes, who will be sharing his in-depth knowledge of cryptocurrency, blockchain technology, and ICO's; concepts that are not yet fully understood in many prominent financial circles. He will be informing entrepreneurs of the benefits these new platforms can offer in their efforts to raise additional capital, and sharing his expertise accrued through 40 years of business experience combined with insights gained as CEO of a promising cryptocurrency based corporation. Mr. Yong has said this will be the perfect opportunity to showcase DNotes.

Read the full story below. 

Founded in 2012 by Victoria Silchenko, a distinguished thought leader in alternative finance, The World Funding Summit has quickly become the premiere event in modern venture financing and fundraising. Their ultimate goal is to eliminate inequality in access to capital, and provide everyone with the opportunity to turn their dream business into a reality. The conference attracts both high profile investors and speakers from around the globe, along with executives, non-bank financiers, and media.

The conference has a great track record of success. Former Vice Chairman of NASDAQ, and co-creator of the JOBS Act David Wield called it "One of the best post-JOBS Act conferences".

 President and CEO of OTC Markets Group R. Cromwell Coulson said, "These are some of the most insightful and engaging conversations I have all year on matters of critical importance to small business and capital formation. Always an exciting event".

The key tracks to be featured in 2017 are:

  • ICO/Cryptocurrency/Blockchain
  • Equity Crowdfunding & Alt Venture Exchanges
  • Capital for Underserved Market, and much more

1000 attendees are expected to show up for the event on November 17th-18th, 2017 at the Los Angeles Convention Center. Tickets are still available at Eventbrite, and range in cost from $195 to $1,395. According to the WFS website there will be over 1 billion dollars of capital in the house. Sponsors and partners include Breakaway Funding, DNotes, Homeier Law PC, NextGen Crowding, Dmarket, Dream Team, Verifyinvestor.com, California Lutheran University, The Blaine Group, and Rock.com.

What does this mean for DNotes?

The forum should provide an excellent opportunity for DNotes to showcase the 2.0 platform, and delve into how the programs built on top of this new infrastructure can open new avenues for alternative financing. DNotes and the World Funding Summit would appear to be a great match, with consistent goals and a strikingly similar vision of financial inclusivity. They are also tasked with nearly identical challenges: DNotes aims to bridge the gap between the worlds of centralized and decentralized finance, while the World Funding Summit strives to unite the worlds of alternative and traditional finance.
