Disruption in Financial Services, Singapore 13 November 2017
True Global Ventures has held 19 highly praised Disruption in Financial Services events in New York (3 times), San Francisco (twice), Singapore (3 times), Beijing, Hong Kong (twice), Shanghai, Mumbai, Stockholm (3 times), London (twice) and Paris. We are stringing together FinTech trends and what Financial Institutions in the future might look like. We showcase growth stage FinTech startups, identify future Blockchain and Token Generating Events (TGEs) trends and help bring the industry together.
We do not allow this to become a PR & Marketing event, media and journalists are not allowed and Chatham rules apply. We are aggressively challenging the current primary/secondary markets and payments landscape and the ongoing hype around TGEs. We look into the future of private markets and and payments. We dig into real user cases of Blockchain applications to solve real problems and define what should go into production or TGEs.
Look forward to an engaging discussion with top industry leaders (corporates, investors, entrepreneurs) in FinTech!
The event will be held at LATTICE80, #08-01, 80 Robinson Road, Singapore 068898 on Monday, November 13th , 2017.

The GPO Fund believes the U.S. IPO market is broken and there is an immediate opportunity to create a new asset class comprised of firms that raise capital through "global public offerings" on non-U.S. exchanges. They have identified a vast pipeline of U.S. growth companies that they can invest into, expand internationally, and take public globally. The GPO Fund takes principal positions in founder-led firms that are technology-enabled, addressing global market opportunities, and have the potential for multi-billion dollar valuations subsequent to a global public offering.
The GPO Fund targets investment opportunities that can substantially benefit from:
> Going public globally within 12 months,
> Gaining the support of a global syndicate of investors,
> Simplification of the capital structure via public listing,
> Operational expansion outside the U.S., especially in fast growing Asia-Pacific,
> Enhanced credibility, liquidity and flexibility achieved as a publicly listed company.
Long term, The GPO Fund believes the rapid evolution of blockchain-based technologies will accelerate trends toward decentralized and tokenized capital markets, creating new paths for capital formation, liquidity and governance. The GPO Fund will conduct its own global public offering via an Initial Coin Offering (ICO) and will use that expertise to pioneer hybrid IPO/ICO offerings.
