By: LDJ Capital
LDJ Capital Chairman David Drake is one of the keynote speakers. More recently, David Drake is also seen as a leader in blockchain and cryptocurrency. He saw the value of digital assets when it was still unpopular. It all started in 2011 when Drake collaborated on the JOBS Act to create new laws underlying all fundraising in the U.S. for all ICOs. He runs a $200M LDJ Cayman Fund focused on cryptocurrency, mining, and ICO acquisitions. LDJ Capital Credit also offers middle market bridge financing to seed upcoming ICOs. Previously, he held a majority stake as a Managing Partner with Robert Hambrecht in an Alternative Energy Fund NewCommons Capital 2009-2010.
Drake says, "As the number of startups grow exponentially every year, we get to see new innovation that could potentially impact our society. This yearly event will not only connect startups to investors but will also highlight the Israeli startup ecosystem."
The two-day event will feature panel discussions, an invite-only investor reception, keynote presentations, roundtable discussions, one-on-one meetings, investor pitches, and a VIP dinner.
