Starting a business is literally one of the most tedious and overwhelming aspects in a business. It is even harder, when you have the idea but lack the financial power to carry out the very basic steps of the business startup. Due to this, the entrepreneur is required to source for alternative means to fund the business. One of those avenues is ICONIQ LAB.
ICONIQ LAB addresses the opportunities and short falls in the crypto markets with the world’s first accelerator program for start-ups interested in launching their own ICO. ICONIQ LAB sources, funds, develops and accelerates carefully selected crypto, blockchain and tokenizable start-ups to their own ICO, creating ICO participation opportunities for ICNQ Club Members and the public crypto markets.
It is quite blatant that cryptocurrency is one of the most important inventions of this millennium. The technological world has evolved in ways that no one could have fathomed. And even though we are still not able to download our food straight from the internet and eat it, at least we can boast of cryptocurrency advancement. The internet is probably the best invention ever made by and to mankind.
One of the most prominent and most preferred cryptocurrency is the Bitcoin. Bitcoin was the very first cryptocurrency to enter into the market and its popularity has now gone global. In fact, some people don’t know of any other cryptocurrency apart from bitcoin. However, cryptos like Ethereum, Litecoin, Cardano, Neo, Stellar Lumens, Eos, Monero and many others, are taking the crypto market by storm, which is good, for competition.
All these are decentralized forms of currency systems work by having the users transact through digital units called bitcoins. Such inventions have revolutionized the world. Some of these cryptocurrencies begun with crowdfunding and good management, which is the exact level of digital management that ICONIQ LAB is offering.
Iconiq Holding is building the premier digital-asset management ecosystem, creating trusted financial vehicles and business opportunities for investors in the blockchain market driven by the ICNQ token. The ICNQ Token powers the ICNQ ecosystem, creating a harmonic solution to digital asset management. Holders of the token gain exclusive membership to the ICO investment club and fund share classes, available through ICONIQ LAB and Iconiq Funds. Additionally, the token is redeemable as a voucher by holders for discounts on ecosystem services.
According to EY, the total amount of funds raised through ICOs exceeded $3.7 billion and outperformed venture investment twice over. In addition to that, it is projected that this trend will continue, according to the report by the Global Crowdfunding Market, it is expected that the compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of the crowdfunding market will grow at an average of 26.87% between the years 2016-2020.
According to figures provided by Ernst & Young, the total amount of funds raised on the ICOs is approaching $4 billion, which is twice the amount of venture capital invested in blockchain start-ups. This includes $0.5 billion, which Beijing has demanded to be returned to investors, after introducing a ban on ICOs.
According to ICO Box, in the third quarter, about 80% of investments in startups were accounted for by large investors – Chinese private investment companies, hedge funds and venture firms specializing in cryptocurrencies, with the rest being retail investors.
At the same time, the market of cryptocurrencies and blockchain will also show high growth rates: Infoholic Research LLP predicts that the market of cryptocurrencies and blockchain will grow by 35.2% in the next 5 years. Currently, the capitalization of cryptocurrency is $397,562,631,312 (March 8, 2013).
For the ICONIQ LAB acceleration, the process takes place in 5 stages; starting from sourcing and due diligence, the second being acceleration and ICO service package, then exclusive presales and opportunities to ICNQ Club members, the next step being to program graduate pubic ICO launches and the last is to carry out post-ICO financial and milestone reporting. This easy five step processes more than enough to ensure that as a Kickstarter, your business idea is well on its way into success.
In the cryptocurrency industry, one of the main challenges is securing an investor to invest in your business. Sometimes it can be hard to meet a trader who has the same interests as you. But just like it is in any other business, a risk has to be taken, a financial risk in this case. However, the good news is, the investors financial risk significantly reduce if the cryptocurrency has security features.
ICONIQ LAB offers such high level security by ensuring the due diligence procedure is carried out and with the correct projections of the business and its value.
