Clarifying the path to tokenization
The potential for tokenization to disrupt existing interactions is huge – offering both more efficient solutions to existing paradigms (e.g. crowdfunding, fractionalized ownership) as well as opening up whole new models for financing and collaboration beyond the currently dominant approaches. The use-case Next Generation Capital is about creating a new way of funding (vertical funds), focusing on hightech ventures that are building solutions for a sustainable future.
What is a vertical fund?
A Vertical is a new way of investing in a theme based basket of ventures, offered as one bundled investment proposition and subsequently listed as separate security tokens on a regulated secondary market, using standardised documentation, standardised issuing practices and complying to a standardised framework of investor requirements.
And learn all the ins and outs of this use-case.

Token Technical Talks & ITSA Standards

10th of September, 11:30 - 13:00
The program managers are important stakeholders in the vertical programmes. The program manager is providing expertise and services as a venture builder and/or accelerator by selecting, coaching and monitoring ventures to develop and/or accelerate (initial) business ideas into successful ventures.
For each vertical, the Program manager is responsible for and will take care of providing for a clear definition of assets the vertical consists of in terms of the theme, technology, industry category and segment of industry the relevant ventures share. In this webinar the following topics will be addressed: Program management, selection, acceleration and monitoring of ventures.
The Netherlands is a resilient, progressive country. It has a healthy business climate with over 450 multinationals like Philips, Heineken, and Unilever, an established financial industry and high ranking academic institutions in order to make it a solid home for technological development.
Yet very little and a very fragmented supply of venture funding is available with little or no institutional investor contribution. After validating, business models of early- and later stage startups with revenue between Eur 0 - 1 mln, fall into a critical valley of death where there is little or no funding available. In order to ensure that ventures get access to investors and funds, there are challenges to be addressed:
For the above mentioned reasons, having a well designed technological infrastructure does not necessarily mean that raising capital or listing a security token can be done efficiently for ventures. An optimal, aligned process is needed to help ventures start, grow and scale. For this purpose, the concept of a venture vertical has been developed.
The vertical will be offered to Investors in the primary market as one single (bundled) investment offer using standardised documentation, standardised issuing practices and complying to a standardised framework of investor requirements. Subsequent Funding will take place when the relevant venture satisfies pre-agreed Milestones.
In the secondary market, each single financial instrument as issued by each single venture can be traded individually in order to create flexibility for the investors to continuously optimize portfolio allocation or, at the request of an Investor, be traded in a bundle as to be determined by that investor. A Vertical is managed by a Program Manager for purposes of developing and/or accelerating the ventures’ (initial) business ideas into a successful venture, business or company.
Characteristics of a vertical
A vertical will have the following characteristics:
The Token is an actual representation of a Security. The Security Token follows the economics of a publicly listed Security. Within the publicly listed securities domain, there are certain permissions granted to licensed operators. A key technological feature of the token is the ability to govern permissions and (various) whitelist(s).
A fully regulated Security Token will be issues that is developed specifically for financing ventures. The blockchain, and thus the token, should have the following characteristics:
