Mayfair 101 has identified ICO's as a rapidly evolving method for growth companies to access capital whilst increasing their market-awareness at level previously not seen through traditional capital raising methods such as IPO's.

Mayfair 101's Managing Director, James Mawhinney, commented "We made a decision in late 2017 to re-allocate a substantial portion of our group's resources to the ICO space. An ICO is an important step for many of our portfolio companies to create a liquidity events for its participants, and are finding we are getting phenomenal support across the board."

"The ICO space is rapidly evolving and we consider we have an important role to play in ensuring any ICO Mayfair 101 is involved in is done using best practices, world class advisers, are fully compliant with regulatory guidelines, and perhaps most importantly provide token holders with a compelling and sustainable value proposition that is backed by a real business", Mawhinney said.

Mayfair 101's Digital Currency Analyst, Brigette Panetta also commented "Having been involved in a large number of pre-ICO investments over the past 12 months it is refreshing to see a portfolio of companies with strong management teams utilising the implementation of blockchain in their business as a means of creating a strong value proposition for their investors and token holders. Mayfair 101 is focused on helping shape the ICO industry to ensure a high standard of ICO's that creates a lasting economic benefit for all participants. We are particularly excited about the opportunity to work alongside some great companies with a strong focus on social responsibility."

Mayfair 101's clients collectively have plans to raise in excess of USD1 billion over the next 12 months. The group has held meetings with lawyers in Australia, London, Singapore, Switzerland and Liechtenstein in recent weeks to develop a comprehensive understanding of the regulatory landscape and ensure its portfolio companies are fully compliant as the ICO industry evolves.

The conference was a resounding success, so much so that a second 3-day invite-only ICO Conference will be held in May in New York.
