Join us for a Masterclass by James Kilroe, a Senior Associate at Newtown Partners.

James will be conducting an intimate information session on "What blockchain investors look for when funding a startup."

The aim of the session will be to give the community valuable insight into:

- What piques investors’ interest?
- What drives them to back certain companies?
- What they’re uninspired by and why?
- The factors Newtown Partners consider to improve the quality of their
existing portfolio
- Success stories from the Newton Partners portfolio, that could serve as
lessons for early-stage entrepreneurs

We look forward to hosting both budding and seasoned entrepreneurs, academics, developers and blockchain enthusiasts for this interactive session!
