Iconiq Lab, a global ICO, and token sale accelerator program has announced the addition of LDJ Capital Chairman David Drake to its Board of Advisers. David and his teams at LDJ Capital and The Soho Loft Media Group will provide counsel on critical issues including token investor relations and international business development.
David Drake is a well-known entrepreneur, investor, and speaker. Through his family office, LDJ Capital, and his partners, David’s investments currently have over 50 global directors that maintain relations with institutions and family offices with $1.5 trillion in assets. He has represented the US Commerce Department at the Transatlantic Forum with the EU Commission in Brussels and Rome, as well as in the UK Parliament as a speaker.
David’s seminal work in the crowdfunding industry has led to an invitation to the White House Champions of Change ceremony. He and The Soho Loft Media Group set up the first ever crowdfunding meeting with SEC and FINRA shortly after President Barack Obama signed the JOBS (Jumpstart Our Business Startups) Act into law.
Alongside other pioneers, he created the CfPA or Crowdfunding Professional Association, which later gave birth to the CFIRA or Crowdfunding Intermediary Regulatory Advocates. These two national associations have worked with the SEC and FINRA on a weekly basis for the past five years.
“David and his team have a proven track record in the traditional and crypto investment ecosystems. It is incredibly exciting to welcome them to the Iconiq Lab team. We look forward to learning from David’s unique insights into the crypto economy, and leverage his experience and network in developing and scaling our accelerator program to the benefit of our own token holders and startup applicants.”
“Iconiq Lab provides the solution to startups’ dilemma between raising funds and business development. They take on the hassle of launching a token for a firm so the team can focus on what’s truly important: their own growth. They’re launching their own token to award initial capital to the most innovative projects entering into ICO, while also empowering their own community to fund any venture. This is a growth necessity of the infrastructure of the whole ecosystem of cryptocurrencies and definitely a must-watch company.”
