NEO Global Capital Hosts Boston Meetup – Focus on Security Tokens

NEO Global Capital (NGC) will hold its very first meetup since the inception of the organization. The meetup will take place in Boston, Massachusetts, on September 15th, 2018. The event’s theme will focus on the ‘Frontiers of Blockchain Investment’, with a specific emphasis on security tokens.


NGC is a Singapore-based, for-profit licensed fund management company that was funded by the NEO foundation in December of 2017. Their aim is to evolve into a distinguished cryptocurrency investment platform which utilizes some of the best practices from traditional investments.

They want to accomplish this through the selective partnering with globally recognized and respected investment professionals and technical developers. As of September 2018, NGC has more than $400 million in assets, and has been an essential key to many blockchain projects such as Zilliqa, Ontology, NKN, Oasis, Mainframe, Certik, Bluzelle, and Iotex.

The following statement describes their motivation in establishing the meetup: “Here at NGC, we value our relationships with industry-leading partners to push forward the frontiers of blockchain industry. This event provides a unique opportunity for you to connect with top Asian/US funds, influencers, hackers, and researchers in the world. For the first time ever, NGC will discuss what we believe to be the next opportunity amidst the turbulent crypto market”.

The meetup features a wide array of speakers and is free and open to the public, but with limited seating available.
