Fundraising through ICO’s Workshop

Fundraising through ICO’s Workshop

The Blockchain Centre is proud to announce it’s latest class in our Workshop series.

This workshop provides an introduction to the fast-moving world of Initial Coin Offerings (ICOs) which is the most common means by which Blockchain start-ups initially raise funds. It is designed to provide a general overview on how to raise funds through Initial Coin Offerings (ICOs) and is a beginner level course.

Find out what an ICO is, why start-ups use them, and the risks and challenges one faces with them. Also, if you are a beginner investor in ICOs, what are the issues in examining them. Of particular concern is how ICO’s are a moving target for legislation and how each country treats ICOs differently.


At the end of this course, you will be able to:

  • appreciate the growth and importance of ICOs as a means to raise funds
  • understand why investors like to use ICOs
  • assess the different problems and risks associated with ICOs
  • consider the legal challenges of conducting an ICO
  • describe the different stages of an ICO in detail
  • human resources requirements of running an ICO
  • identify important questions relating to token pricing, generation and issuance.
