The not so X-files of Stage 2

Oh man – how could I have been so stupid? Talking to Lars Wrobbel about the P2P conference 2019, and what improvements could be made to the 2020 conference, I moaned about the fact that there was simultaneous sessions on the Main Stage and Stage 2, making it impossible to attend all sessions. 

I filmed the Main Stage and stayed here most of the time, not realizing that Stage 2 was also filmed and shared on YouTube a few days after I made my first article with videos from the conference. So, today I got the gift of another P2P conference from stage 2, as the videos was uploaded a little later than the videos from the Main Stage. So I missed them. I of course want to share them if you, like me, also missed it. Of course, the videos are from June 2019 so the numbers they show are no longer accurate. But it is also fun to see how the platforms have developed. Enjoy, fellow investors. 

Book about P2P investing - now in English

Before we get started, since the P2P conference, Lars Wrobbel has been working hard to translate his, and his P2P conference sidekick, Kolja Barghoorn’s, book about P2P investing. Anyone involved in crowdlending should know about Lars Wrobbel at this point. He is running the very successful German P2P blog and podcast and has more than 65.000 followers. He is the most unbiased P2P blogger I have come across. He wrote the book in collaboration with Kolja Barghoorn, who is very well known in the investor community as well. One of the few books about crowdlending in English out there at this point. Don’t miss out! Get Lars’ and Koljas book in English right here!
