Blockchain & equity 👛 ConsenSys, Toquity & Kramer Levin

⚠️⚠️⚠️ TICKET VIA EVENTBRITE REQUIRED ⚠️⚠️⚠️ https://www.eventbrite.com/e/blockchain-stock-options-w-consensys-toquity-kramer-levin-tickets-62971138370 We only see the beginning of the significant benefits Blockchain brings through tokenised assets, particularly securities. Business & legal rules are automated: More incentives, retention & transparency can potentially be achieved thanks to liquid equity tokens 💧 Startups trade equity for funds and network with investors. They give equity to experts for advice. They issue stock options to employees for retention and to align incentives. They put in place plans to keep founders motivated and so much more. Over the years, this has resulted in many moving parts and large amount of complexity. This complexity has given way to regulations and has resulted in a lack of transparency and liquidity for shareholders. Managing all this complexity involves a lot of man hours. Additionally, people make mistakes, they go on vacations and they can only work so many hours a day. With the use of blockchain technology and tokenisation of securities, all these rules and complexities can be programmed in perfectly, so everyone - companies, employees, investors and regulators - is happy and well informed. We invited a team of blockchain/equity Avengers who will discuss the evolution of legislation & regulations concerning equity tokens, the new business models associated with a liquid equity market and the global state & prospects of this new field 🔮 LINE-UP ⚗️ Anne-Sophie Cartray, Executive Director at ConsenSys: The Blockchain studio building decentralized applications on Ethereum 📋 Akshay Bhimrajka, Co-Founder at Toquity: The cap table management software ⚖️ Hubert de Vauplane, Partner at Kramer Levin: The investment funds law firm 🚀 Balthazar de Lavergne, Director at The Family: The European family for entrepreneurs The event is 100% open and free! It will be followed by a Q&A to satisfy your curiosity as well as some time to get to know each other 😉 See you there!

How to nail a rebranding process 🖌️ SendinBlue & papernest

⚠️⚠️⚠️ TICKET VIA EVENTBRITE REQUIRED ⚠️⚠️⚠️ https://www.eventbrite.com/e/how-to-nail-a-rebranding-process-w-sendinblue-papernest-tickets-63003740885 Branding is a long-term task you shouldn’t neglect. Because of variations in your business, you need to take time every once in a while to look into your heart & start rebranding. It’s the perfect moment to reinvent or reinforce your identity, positioning & style to get closer to your targeted clients 😚 A rebranding process is long and sometimes painful, but the outcome can be a total game-changer. We designed an event to show you two different sides of the work: the identification phase with Candice Gasperini (https://twitter.com/candicesg), VP of Branding at SendinBlue (https://www.sendinblue.com/), & the process itself with Philippe de La Chevasnerie (https://www.linkedin.com/in/delachevasneriephilippe/), CEO at papernest (https://www.papernest.com/). Talk #1: Adapting your brand to a new positioning 📨 Candice Gasperini, VP Branding at SendinBlue If you want a fresh rebranding, here you go - SendinBlue literally just announced theirs. One year ago, as they were working on their new positioning from an emailing to an all-in-one marketing platform, they needed to rethink their brand (logo, style, tone of voice) by adapting it to each segment they identified. Candice arrived in september at SendinBlue to work on the rebranding and noticed one thing: the company was already quite big, with hundred thousands clients in 160 countries, they had very detailed data about their customers but had never taken the time to identify precisely their patterns, who they were and what was the real job customers were using their product for. Talk #2: From a local to a global brand 📄 Philippe de La Chevasnerie, CEO at papernest papernest is one of those startups addressing a problem we’ve all experienced as painful for a long time: moving. You know all the paperwork and procedures you have to go through for your contracts (insurance, electricity, gas, internet, TV, phone)? They simplify it. The startup was previously called Souscritoo, a pretty French name, and then they decided to rebrand everything two years ago to change their culture and get aligned with their ambition to become a global company. They wrote an amazing article about what they went through during the process and Philippe, their CEO, will be with us to help us to understand their reasons, the decision-making & the results more clearly. The event is 100% open and free! It will be followed by a Q&A to satisfy your curiosity as well as some time to get to know each other 😉 See you there!

Secrets to build consumer products 🌈 Roger Dickey, cofounder at Gigster

⚠️⚠️⚠️ TICKET VIA EVENTBRITE REQUIRED ⚠️⚠️⚠️ https://www.eventbrite.com/e/secrets-to-build-consumer-products-w-roger-dickey-cofounder-at-gigster-tickets-63106105059 Building consumer apps is attractive but it’s more challenging than ever: The consumer app period we all witnessed from[masked] is over and the tech giants absorb all the light now. But even though enterprise products are getting increasing attention, there is still room for building new consumer brands 🚪 Though Roger Dickey’s (https://twitter.com/rogerdickey) heart has been in consumer for some time, he’s probably best known for cofounding Gigster (https://gigster.com/), a venture-backed startup that gives clients a way to systematically outsource software development to freelance coders, which raised $32M from Redpoint Ventures & Andressen Horowitz. Recently, he decided to step down from his role as CEO to start Untitled Labs, a search lab which investors like Founders Fund are convinced might well be Roger’s next big thing. He also previously co-founded Curiosoft, which was acquired by Zynga, where he then led Mafia Wars (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mafia_Wars). We are super excited about having him on stage with Mathias Pastor, Director at The Family, who will ask him about building consumer products, coming up with new ideas, quick testing & iteration, stepping down from his CEO position & much more. The event is 100% open and free! It will be followed by a Q&A to satisfy your curiosity as well as some time to get to know each other 😉 See you there!
