  • Galvanize - San Francisco (SoMa) 44 Tehama Street San Francisco, CA 94105 United States (map)

Crypto Underground is excited to welcome our next speaker Adam Draper, Founder and Managing Director of Boost VC. In addition to being a prominent venture fund, Boost VC is the #1 accelerator in the world for Crypto and VR startups. Adam will being speaking about the current state of the crypto world, in addition to sharing his insights and learnings from working with numerous companies in their accelerator program. Come grab a beer and mingle with our awesome community while learning something new. We look forward to seeing you!

Adam Draper is the founder and managing director of Boost VC, which is committed to making science fiction technologies a reality. They’ve funded 250+ companies who have gone on to raise an additional $1 billion. No idea is too crazy for Adam. With his dream of building an ironman suit, he leads the investments in the wildest of Boost VC's SciFi Tech investments - exoskeletons, jetpacks, rockets... Go big or go home.

Adam co-founded Boost VC after investing as an angel in companies like Coinbase, Amplitude and Plangrid. In a previous life he wanted to be a professional tennis player and has an odd affinity for Australians. He once drank an entire bottle of tabasco sauce (the big ones) in 43 seconds. He has been an entrepreneur, he has been an investor and more importantly, he's always a friend :)

We are so excited to have the opportunity to have Adam join us! In addition to getting to ask questions, all attendees will have the opportunity to make a 30-second announcement about a blockchain-related project you’re working on. You can pitch your upcoming ICO, ask for help, or offer your expertise. Look forward to seeing you on Tuesday, November 13!

Ticket Price: $5
