Redefining Value: The Ripple Effect?


Thomas McLeod


Stefan Thomas


Fundraising is entering a new era — we’re evolving past over-sanitized venture capital that hinders innovation and access to opportunity. On the heels of their first-of-its-kind partnership, Omni’s CEO Tom McLeod and Ripple’s CTO Stefan Thomas discuss new options for startups that remove barriers in today’s VC landscape. They’ll also discuss the new definition of “value,” new ways consumers view physical and digital items of value and an economy focused on moving those items seamlessly from one person to another.
