Financiers, investors, and cryptocurrency innovators from around the world gathered in Los Angeles last weekend to participate in the recent World Funding Summit. The two-day conference focused on a wide range of topics, including crowdfunding liquidity, ICO and blockchain, royalty financing, angel investing and venture capital, and more. Those participants included DNotes Co-Founder Alan Yong, who was a featured speaker during the ICO and Cryptocurrency panel on the first day of the summit.
During the panel, Yong had some advice for entrepreneurs seeking investor funding for their projects:
“If you truly want to change the world and raise a lot of money, start out with something that is of substance, something that you are passionate about - something that you really believe in and can sell to other people and get people to go with you.”
Yong also observed that today’s entrepreneurs have more options than at any time in history, and advised attendees to do their homework to ensure that they understand all those options.
Dnotes Co-Founder Theodore Hauenstein was also on hand for the summit, and suggested that the conference was a clear success. “The World Funding Summit far exceeded my expectations,” he said. “We had a knowledgeable group of guest speakers who covered a wide variety of topics in the funding, investing, and cryptocurrency space. It was exciting to watch them explore these important topics in a no-holds-barred, no-punches-pulled forum.”
