Blockchain for Startups – Part 2: ICOs (feat. Rachel Cook, Seeds)
This episode is the second in a special 4-part podcast mini-series about the transformative technology, blockchain, and how it can be used by innovative startups.
In Part 2, we’ll dive deep into the hot topic of ICOs (Initial Coin Offerings) with Rachel Cook, CEO of Seeds, a Backstage Capital portfolio company. Learn about security vs utility tokens, pre-launching a token sale, and leveraging a crowd-funding-style ICO as an alternative funding source — all through the lens of Rachel’s fascinating career, discovering gender inequality as a stock trader, breaking down western preconceptions about entrepreneurship in African countries through documentary filmmaking, and overcoming the paradigm of scarcity to embrace a future of abundance.
Please note: we are not making any recommendations about ICOs or your participation in them.
