Next Live: « Personal Tokens & Creators IPOs »
Yes, our next Private Live “Venture Talks”, free for our premium members, planned for Oct. 26 @ 8pm UK (zoom).
We are probably biased by our VC twitter list.
In the Top 3 of topics guess who’s coming everyday to breakkie, lunch and dinner? Web3.
And it is all about how likely Web3 is to foster a more genuine and direct conversation between creators and their audience, allowing the former to turn the latter into communities.
Example of Audience vs. Community for a newsletter (credits: Marie Dollé FR or ENG) even if Web3 goes beyond this illustration of n-to-n discussions replacing 1-to-n ones.
Yet it is hard to cut out the noise from self-proclaimed community builders and authentic creators having built a personal brand and turned it into a cash generating asset.
However Web3 may or may not be actually only about cash. About two weeks ago I started to reach out to VCs and Founders to assemble a versatile panel that would unpack Live for us why creators / celebrities / people would embrace Web3 and issue personal tokens, binding them to being creative, committed and accountable.
So when I read 4 days ago Rex’ piece (Rex is VC @ Index in SF) on his newsletter Digital Native about « Social Tokens and Creator-Centric Economies », it was a no brainer Rex had to come on the said-show in prep.
🔥 Our next Live « Venture Talks »
We are thrilled to announce that we have assembled an amazing panel of repeat founders, VCs and personal tokens issuers, four guests located between San Francisco, Toronto, Paris and New York brought together for you to discuss about the rationale of launching Personal Tokens and the Creators IPOs narrative, its process and how that fosters creativity, commitment and accountability. And so much more.
🎙 Format: Live Venture Talks, an online AMA we will host & moderate with the 4-guest panel
🎯 Date: Oct 26, 12pm PDT / 8pm UK / 9pm CET
🍉 Private access for our premium members on "Venture Notes" to give them the opportunity to ask all their questions and engage with our guests.
