Recapping Our All-Star June Podcast Guests

Throughout June, we were happy to host another set of excellent speakers to add to our KoreTalkX series, covering timely topics like digital securities, RegA+ for cannabis, and the potential RegA+ unlocks for companies in the Medtech space. Keep reading to explore each episode in more depth. 

 

KoreTalkX #5: Digital securities matter; tokens, coins, and regulations.

 

The June lineup of KoreTalks kicked off with episode #5, during which Andrew Bull discussed the future of digital assets and their impact on the financial industry. As digital securities enter the mainstream, their potential to protect issuers and create opportunities for investors grows with the transparency they can offer. However, education will continue to be an important factor in driving the expansion of the digital asset space. This conversation is helpful for anyone interested in learning more about digital assets and their impact on the financial industry. With their experience in traditional finance and digital assets, Andrew Bull and Dr. Garimella provide valuable insights into this growing industry based on their observations of the industry’s development. 

 

KoreTalkX #6: Cannabis businesses need capital. Let’s raise it.

 

Reg A+ is a powerful tool for companies in the private sector, and it is no different for those in the cannabis industry. In KoreTalkX #6, Brianna Martyn of Big Stock Tips discussed the importance of due diligence when investing in the cannabis industry, advising investors to research and understand each company’s fundamentals before investing. Brianna spoke with Jessica Trapani of KoreConX about our role in helping private companies raise up to $75 million from brand advocates and customers without going public. 

 

KoreTalk #7: The MedTech ecosystem is booming.

 

The JOBS Act was signed into law two decades ago, yet we are just beginning to see more Medtech companies utilize the RegA+ exemption to raise capital. In the last KoreTalkX episode for June, Stephen Brock and Peter Daneyko discussed the benefits of the Jobs Act and how it will help businesses grow and create jobs. Especially in the Medtech space, which is traditionally capital-intensive, RegA+ provides a tremendous opportunity for companies to raise needed capital while retaining more ownership of their company. Additionally, the speakers also discuss new, game-changing opportunities for investors, who are now able to invest in companies that align with deeply personal values.

KorePartner Spotlight: Andrew Bull, Founding Partner Bull Blockchain Law  

With the recent launch of the KoreConX all-in-one platform, KoreConX is happy to feature the partners contributing to its ecosystem. 

 

During the capital raising journey, many components must be in place to increase the potential for success. One of these critical factors is ensuring that a capital raise meets regulatory compliance requirements. This means that having a knowledgeable securities lawyer on your team is vital to your capital raise.

 

Andrew Bull knows this as a founding partner of Bull Blockchain Law. He and the company assist investors and businesses by providing regulatory clarity across jurisdictions to ensure raises are compliant and efficient. Bull Blockchain Law is a blockchain and cryptocurrency law firm specializing in digital assets, broker-dealer services, FinTech, advising, and more, and is one of the few law firms entirely focused on this subject. 

 

Since discovering Bitcoin in 2011, Andrew has become an industry thought leader and ran one of the first cryptocurrency mining companies in the US. He began his firm in direct response to a lack of clarity around laws in the blockchain industry.

 

We took some time to speak with Andrew and learn more about himself, his firm, and his thoughts on cryptocurrency’s future.

To provide legal clarity regarding the regulatory compliance requirements for accessing capital from all types of investors. The emerging world of Bitcoin and Cryptocurrency gives a new way to supply these things to the industry and assist a new style of investor.

 

What services does your company provide for RegA offerings?

Bull Blockchain Law provides legal guidance, document drafting, and regulatory filings to ensure our clients have the best possible chance to have their Reg A Offering approved by the SEC.

 

What are your unique areas of expertise?

Blockchain, tokenization of assets, NFTs, tokens, and any economic representation facilitated through digital issuances. My background in Blockchain includes extensive legal and academic experience, including running one of the first Cryptocurrency mining companies in the United States, which helps in the scope of legal expertise I can provide.

 

What excites you about this industry?

With the recent expansion of the fundraising thresholds in the U.S. and Canada, I’m excited to see the large influx of new projects access capital and provide more opportunities to retail investors.
