David Drake, Chairman of LDJ Capital and The Soho Loft Media Group, speaks at Orange County VCs, Angels, Crypto and ICOs Event organized by FundingPost


Cryptocurrency and blockchain enthusiasts, startups, venture capitalists, investors, service providers, and company executives convene at the Eureka Building in Irvine, California for the Orange County VCs, Angels, Crypto and ICOs Event on October 11, 2018.

LDJ Capital Chairman David Drake is one of the speakers for this event. More recently, David Drake is also seen as a leader in blockchain and cryptocurrency.  He saw the value of digital assets when it was yet 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, “This is a must-attend event for startup companies and investors. They will gain firsthand insight from the industry experts and investors. Knowing what the investors are looking for in an ICO will be very helpful to improve one’s project in today’s competitive market.”

This event features a fireside chat with the speakers and investors, startups presentation, and panel discussions with the speakers. There will also be an after-event cocktail party where the attendees will have the opportunity to expand their networks and portfolios. Some of the topics to be discussed in the event include the trends in early-stage investing, the best ways to reach investors, crypto and financial services, blockchain technologies, and blockchain for business and enterprise.
