Horizon, Finceler8, and the UK Department for International Trade (DIT) are excited to be hosting an upcoming webinar to discuss the state of capital raising with a focus on regulatory and fintech challenges across the U.S. and U.K. 

The live panel, including additional speakers from Albion VC and SteelEye, will take place on Tuesday, October 13, 2020 from 12:00pm to 1:15pm EST. Interested attendees may click here to RSVP.

Panelists include Jessica Bartos, Investment Manager at Albion VC who has advised companies and investors like AT&T, Intel, KPN, Apax Partners and The Carlyle Group, amongst others; Mark Elenowitz, President of Horizon and Wall Street veteran known for leading the first Reg A+ IPO of a company to list on the NYSE; and Matt Smith, CEO of SteelEye which recently secured $10 million in Series A funding. 

The panel of experts spanning across the U.S. and U.K. will be moderated by Hayden Boilini, Trade & Investment Associate with the UK Department for International Trade (DIT) based out of the British Consulate in New York.

Goal of webinar discussion:

The state of capital formation is evolving. Access to funding in the private markets is allowing companies to stay private longer. This coupled with the world’s expedited shift to digitalization is bringing about unique regulatory and technological opportunities.

The panel is designed to give fintechs, entrepreneurs, investors, and surrounding securities market participants actionable insights into the state of the market and an enhanced capital raising strategy.

Webinar participants will hear and learn about:

  • Capital raising opportunities for entrepreneurs and issuers
  • Taking advantage of the growing private capital markets in the U.S. and U.K.
  • How VCs assess fintech firms from an investment perspective and the changing landscape
  • Maintaining compliance and competitiveness with the shift to digitalization
  • Observable trends in the fintech investment space
  • Automating risk and compliance, KYC/AML global policy
  • Big data opportunities, tech strategy, and how to harness its value

Horizon, Finceler8, DIT, and our panelists look forward to fostering a meaningful discussion. This is a free webinar with a limited amount of space. Click here to reserve your spot.
