The Goren Holm Group, creators of the Crypto Invest Summit – an investment focused event targeting the blockchain and crypto industry, have announced the formation of a new company, Security Token Summit, LLC. The announcement was accompanied by a first scheduled event to be taking place in Los Angeles this coming April.
Described as a high-end, security token and digital securities event, the gathering will focus on topics such as custody, compliance, regulation, investing, marketing, tokenization, real estate and more. As the security token concept has taken hold industry participants have worked to become regulatory compliant – often a complex task.
The Goren Holm Group was founded by early securities crowdfunding advocates Alon Goren and Josef Holm. The two Fintech industry pioneers have been engaged with the investment crowdfunding sector since before the JOBS Act (the legislation that enabled crowdfunding) became actionable under the law.
The upcoming Security Token Summit was developed to coincide with existing securities regulations that enable online capital formation: Regulation Crowdfunding, Regulation A+, and Reg D 506c (accredited crowdfunding). When securities are combined with blockchain (or distributed ledger technology) advocates believe that a new breed of digital assets will emerge bringing greater democratization of capital for both investors and issuers.
