What opportunities are on offer for those attending?
The New York City High Tech Family Office Meetings are a series of select Semi Annual events dedicated to investments of high net worth individuals and single family office executives in high tech opportunities. Our next meeting is to explore and discuss the emerging and controversial world of Blockchain, Cryptocurrencies and ICO’s. Is it the dotcom bubble all over again or the next big disruptor – the internet of value? Is it the next tulips or the next revolution?
The meeting will explore the following – the future of cryptocurrencies, a look at the growing number of Blockchain based technology companies (media, gaming, fintech, AI, P2P, clean-tech, marketplaces, hardware, base protocols, security, social and more) and will answer different questions like on the nature of ICOs; how it works, the future of ICOs and the pitfalls to be watchful of; where the opportunities lie and what should be avoided; how do the regulators, lawmakers, tax authorities view and approach the space and on the other end what is the advisers’ point of view – legal and accounting issues (evaluation, bookkeeping etc.).
We will map and explain the world of Blockchain and Cryptocurrencies by also looking at different point of views of various experts – from the leading investors in the field – VCs, family offices and individuals, to the field’s top experts – academia, entrepreneurs, legal advisers and CPAs.
