About this event

Dear Startup Community, 

Have you ever thought about leveraging the potential of "Alternative Assets" for your business, investments or maybe just as a side hustle?
For many people, Alternative Assets seem a bit abstract and difficult to grasp at first sight - so they did for us. But let's think about it a bit further by looking at some current examples: 
- Facebook Groups, Instagram or Reddit Accounts
- Toys, Video Games, Pokemon or Basketball Cards
- Art, Furniture, Stamps or Franchises, 
and even Spotify Playlist ... 

Looking at just a few examples - we realized how deeply integrated Alternative Assets already are in our private lives. No wonder that there is the common saying that "Alternative Assets are being democratized". So the questions we asked ourselves are how we can use its potential and drive growth for our current or next venture? And what risks or challenges should we bear in mind when investing in them? 

How does the Alternative Assets landscape for founders even look like and where is a good place to position ourselves in 2021? 

To get more clarity on questions like that - we are thrilled to announce our next guest & friend: Stewart Townsend. 

Stewart is the founder of Channel Management and the perfect speaker to tell you everything you need to know about how to get started, make use of Alternative Assets and drive growth in your business. 

Save your spot on February 25, 6:30pm - 08:00pm (CET). 

Community Shout-out:
