I am a cryptocurrency enthusiast, serial entrepreneur, business strategist, and advisor. Having lived in 9 countries [China, South Korea, Thailand, Russia, France, Argentina, Mexico, Indonesia, and the USA] and visited 23, I gained diverse experience and knowledge related to consumer, payment, and crypto markets. This knowledge and experience are the valuable assets that I bring to each company I work with. Originally, my journey began in China where I had been living for 3.5 years working with Blockchain startups and SMEs. Later, in 2019, I joined the United Nations Capital Development Fund (UNCDF) in Bangkok to research and analyse possible emerging tech applications, including blockchain, that can increase financial inclusion in the Asian region. At the same time, I started working with Silicon Valley-based VC fund helping to redesign their financial and business model to democratize investments and to provide retail investors with easier access to VC deals. Being passionate about startups development, I started working on FAS | Fintech Advisory Services. At the end of the first quarter of 2019, FAS was officially launched and I was allocating all my time to build a new generation of a consulting firm with a unique ecosystem that can address the needs of small businesses. At the moment FAS is in 15 different countries and covering multiple continents including 50 talented consultants in Blockchain and Fintech. The company’s network also includes more than 800 companies from the space. Previously, I’ve been directly involved in organizing blockchain conferences and events including BlockConf Digital (one of the largest Blockchain conferences of 2020), Startup Secret Santa (a non-profit mentor matching event for startups), and Supermoon Camp (an exclusive invite-only event for crypto community). In May 2021, I launched FlashBack, a bespoke ticketing platform that utilises NFT technology and reshapes the existing ticketing industry. FlashBack already secured a grant from Avalanche, had more than 100 media mentions including Hackernoon, Yahoo Finance, BeInCrypto, and Cointelegraph, as well as started ticketing with major conferences and events. I am working with startups as a mentor and as an advisor helping businesses grow into successful ventures. The easiest way to reach out to me is to reach out to me on LinkedIn.
