Fundraising through ICO’s Workshop

Fundraising through ICO’s Workshop

This workshop gives an overview of the fast-moving world of Initial Coin Offerings (ICOs) which is the most common means today by which Blockchain start-ups raise funds. Whilst the course is targeted for beginner-to-intermediate level, it also suits those who may be struggling with their ICO and wondering why. It is also suited to investors who want to understand the intricacies of running an ICO and hence, be able to better evaluate the quality of an ICO before they invest.

Many ICOs do not fulfil their potential in achieving maximum funds because they neglect adequate preparation and often list too early. Such weaknesses can be avoided.

Find out what an ICO is, why start-ups do them along with the risks and legal and technical challenges one faces in running them. The workshop highlights Australian legislation and how it impacts ICOs. All the phases of an ICO are laid out along critical lessons learned from failed and successful ICOs. The latest data analytics are presented.

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

* Appreciate the growth and importance of ICOs as a means to raise funds
