Europe Disruptive Investment Summit

We’re in a never-before-seen market situation right now where it’s difficult to tell what the “safe” assets are and asset managers are trying to reach for yield without taking big risks. 

The natural answer is to look at alternative assets.

Disruptive technology investments are less understood by legacy investors because of the exotic nature of the asset classes.

Not only are these investments positioned to beat inflation, but they provide the opportunity to achieve massive returns. 

However, as they converge into the mainstream and reach their tipping points towards global adoption, there is a knowledge gap that must be filled. 

The Europe Disruptive Investment Summit is your opportunity to fill this knowledge gap as we bring together disruptive investment managers and highlight some amazing European case studies. 

You’ll learn directly from some of the most revolutionary entrepreneurs and hear what changes they expect in our society over the next 10 years. 

Topics covered will include: 

  • Future of Art with Disruptive Technology
  • DeFi & The Future of Finance
  • Metaverse and the Immersive Future of the Internet
  • Mass Adoption of Disruptive Technology
  • Future Of Financial Institutions
  • Disruptive Technology Exposure Through Public Funds
  • The Future Of Real Estate, Securities, Commodities & Assets
  • The Future Of Family Offices
  • And Much More!

 

This is the perfect event for any investors, asset managers, or companies who want to learn more about investing in Europe and what opportunities are currently available. 

And for those interested, it will also be broadcasted in Decentraland at the Crypto Convention Center with breakout sessions at the GDA Capital HQ in Crypto Valley.

We hope to see you all there!
