Starting a crypto business with Entrepreneur First

Featuring

If you’d asked us not more than a year ago, we’d have been saying that, given all of the hype surrounding blockchain technology, there was not a huge amount of evidence that it was being mirrored by a commensurate number of startups coming through the pipeline to support it. How things have changed in a year. With an explosion of projects now coming out of the woodwork, some of the unique challenges to starting up a crypto business are also becoming very apparent too. With that in mind, we’re very pleased to host a special event with Reid Hoffman-backed incubator, Entrepreneur First. You can read more about them here: www.joinef.com
At the event, EF partner and old friend of Coinscrum, Nadav Rosenberg, will introduce three of their current cohort that are working on crypto-related projects. Once we’ve heard from each of them, Nadav will lead a panel discussion that will be sure to offer you some insights around the opportunities and pitfalls to watch our for when starting a crypto business. Presenting on the night will be:
CREDITMINT – Introduced by TOM POCOCK
CreditMint is building the technical infrastructure to allow small lenders to disrupt the $4.1tn syndicated lending industry. It is building the digital loan smart contracts on Ethereum mainnet, along with dealmaking, trading and settlements software, to launch private debt on a public blockchain.
–PRIME FACTOR CAPITAL – Introduced by NIC NIEDERMOWWE
