[New York, NY – February 7, 2019] – KoreConX is proud to announce David Weild will be the keynote speaker for their KoreSummit Miami event, to be held on February 20th.
Mr. Weild is part of KoreConX’s Board of Advisors and played an instrumental role in the creation of the Jumpstart Our Business Startups (JOBS) Act, the bill signed by President Obama in 2012 that encourages funding for Small Business.

Weild is also a former Vice Chairman and executive committee member of The NASDAQ Stock Market and spent several years running the Wall Street investment banking and equity capital markets businesses. He is now dedicated to acting as CEO and Chairman in his own company, Weild & Co., considered by LaRoche Research as one of the fastest growing investment banks in the U.S. in 2017.
“2019 is the year of tokenized securities. The regulators are closing the circle and there is no more space for mistakes, you have no choice but to comply with the regulators, which in the end is the most cost-effective way to operate” said David Weild. “That’s why it is so important that we have events such as the KoreSummit, which aim to educate the public on what tokenizing securities is, and all the different considerations they entail, from regulation to investor relations.”
“For me personally there is no person in this planet that brings this level of credibility to the capital markets and provides clear insight. We are truly honored to have David Weild as part of the KoreSummit this month in Miami,” said Oscar Jofre, Co-Founder & CEO of KoreConX.
