Blockchain Angels Germany
Before token sales and ICO's became popular for fund raising, it was challenging for blockchain projects to raise funds for their projects.
Sven Laepple and Jamie Burke from Outlier Ventures, UK teamed up for Blockchain Angels Germany 2016. Goal was to provide fundraising support to blockchain projects and present these investment opportunities to business angels and investors. Jamie first gave insights in blockchain technology and afterwards findings from operating the largest blockchain projects database with nearly one thousand blockchain projects worldwide.
For 2017, few international blockchain projects were invited to come to Berlin. Here are the teams from 2016, and further below, from 2017:
