CoinScrum {Launchpad} in partnership with Seedcoin & TechHub

We're pleased to announce the line up for our first event specifically aimed at providing business networking opportunities and start-up advice, CoinScrum {Launchpad}

In partnership with TechHub, & Seedcoin

For these events, the presentations will generally focus on more advanced topics than those at {Bootcamp}, something that will hopefully be of use to those that are taking their first steps towards starting their crypto-currency based businesses.

Updates on the legal and regulatory environment in the UK will feature every time and we'll give attendees the chance to pick the brains of our resident legal advisers.

And if you have your business plans drawn up and ready to go, our sponsors from and Seedcoin will be on hand to to take you through the various options for getting your hands on some of that all important funding and advise you on the best ways of taking advantage of the various tax incentives available to you here in the UK.

We'll also let you grab the mic for our Shout Out sessions where you can let everyone know what you;re up to or beg for partners to help you fulfil your vision. 

The Agenda for the evening will be:

    After my presentation a few of you were asking me further questions on the difference between equity crowdfunding like and rewards based CrowdFunding like StartJOIN. Just dug out this video that may help...

      Hi Insel, not going to happen tonight I'm afraid but we're looking at our options for providing this service in future

      February 20, 2014

  • Paul Q.

    Insel, this is (potentially) a good idea. Organisers could look into making the event a live Google Hangout...or record straight to You Tube, so others can watch later? But perhaps presenters won't want to put themselves out to the world like this...and it defeats the 'social' aspect of the MeetUp format, to some degree...Would be good to get a conversation going with members on this topic - what is the best way forwards as the community grows?

    Really looking forward to meeting like-minded people. I created CoinTouch to find friends of friends that want to trade bitcoins.

    CoinTouch shows offers to buy and sell within your extended social network. Prices are pegged to market rates (MtGox or CoinDesk), at your chosen spread, and thus automatically update every minute. There are no fees, no delays and less risk than conventional exchanges.
