The SPAC Opportunity Summit’s presenting sponsor, Lionheart Acquisition Corp. II, Chief Executive Officer, Ophir Sternberg said, “In recent years, we have seen a significant uptick in blank-check companies, or SPACs, forming unlike 20 years ago. We would like to use this opportunity to share valuable knowledge on the market dynamics and opportunities being sought-after with the next generation.”
Wharton professor Mauro Guillen, said, “This event featuring all the industry experts in the SPAC market will add tremendous value and insight into how investors and sponsors are viewing this alternative to the traditional IPO route, which has been reborn in a new light.”
“In the next decade there will be many new trends which we have never seen before come to light and the SPAC market just might be one of these,” added Professor Guillen.
SPAC Opportunity Summit Co-founder and Producer and the Penn SPAC Club President Matias Urcuyo said, “These investment vehicles have stemmed from the continued democratization of information which will continue impacting the financial markets for decades to come. SPACs are the future way that companies will now want to raise funds by promoting aligned deal structures and providing the ability for retail investors to also get involved in the fundraising process which democratized investing for many.”
