Run for the Unicorns (“RUN”) is your chance to network with some of the top minds in fintech while marking the pomp and circumstance of the Kentucky Derby off of your bucket list. Hitting the starting gate on April 29, 2019, in Louisville, Kentucky, and entering the stretch on May 4, RUN is no ordinary crypto conference. This is a week-long experience that will allow for plenty of out-of-conference-hall networking and extracurricular activities, providing a great opportunity to foster long-term relationships in a way that you just can’t do at a one-day event. With attendees ranging from the hottest startups to big-time Fortune 500 mainstays, RUN is sure to have something to pique the interest of any crypto enthusiast.
The agenda for RUN is jam-packed, so be ready for a good time. The weekend before the official event, Fanhacks, partner of the RUN team, is hosting a fan engagement hackathon and e-sports game jam focused on blockchain, AI and XR technologies. On Monday, April 29, the main show gets underway with a Shark Tank open casting call. Got a game changing idea or startup in the fintech sector? This could be your chance to get it in front of the Sharks on ABC’s hit show. Tuesday offers multiple options for attendees, including a trip down Kentucky’s famous Bourbon Trail and a highly-competitive, crypto-powered poker tournament. The eight-hour Bourbon Trail outing will feature three exclusive distillery tours, and you can bet that there will be samples to go around!
Wednesday and Thursday will feature the official conference, with top blockchain, crypto and investor keynote presentations and panels, as well as an ICO pitch competition. Rick Tumlinson , founding partner of SpaceFund, will be part of an impressive roster of industry leaders presenting on RUN’s main stage. Tyler Adkison , co-founder and XVP of XII Private Wealth, and Jon Najarian , CNBC and CME correspondent and director of Evergreen Token, will also be on-hand to provide valuable insight into the development, growth and evolution of blockchain and fintech as a whole.
The fun will roll on long after the last presenter leaves the stage at RUN. Friday’s agenda includes a day at the Kentucky Oaks, America’s premier and most lucrative race for three-year old fillies. After the race, you can put on your dancing shoes and head over to the Unicorn Ball, which is scheduled to take the good times well into the morning hours as attendees prepare for Saturday’s Run for the Roses.
RUN 2019 is scheduled to include mind-blowing keynotes by industry luminaries; classes and tutorials; products and startup demos; industry use cases; a startup competition; art from Jassen Popp; talks by industry leaders covering business, technology and design; and numerous exhibits. Combine all of this with a chance to check out the 145th renewal of The Greatest Two Minutes in Sports on May 4, and you’ve got the makings for an unforgettable week.
