What are the cost benefits of participating in Trade Missions?


“We found the Blockchain & Digital Assets Virtual Trade Mission event to be a valuable resource for meeting a large number of qualified potential investors in a very short period of time. Having access to potential investors’ contact details made communications with potential investors efficient. The Trade Mission staff was friendly, helpful, resourceful, and always responsive. ”

— JoAnne Lauer, Blockchain Capital

  1. Without the trade mission format, it would be impossible to set up 20-30 LP meetings in one day with pre-qualified potential LPs. It would require multiple days and multiple trips. This is a major benefit in terms of dollars, time and energy saved.
  2. The same level of meetings would probably require a minimum of two to three trips to meet the same number of high-level people. These additional trips alone are equivalent to or will cost more than the Trade Mission in terms of airfare and hotel.
  3. There are no commissions charged on ANY investments you receive during the Trade Mission.
