These are a handful of businesses I've helped start and the missions behind them.
ETHGlobal makes it easy to join the Ethereum ecosystem. Over the last year and a half we have welcomed over 5000 hackers from across the world to hack on bleeding-edge blockchain projects, Web3 applications, and cryptoeconomic research. Events have been held in Waterloo, Denver, Berlin, Buenos Aires, Bangalore, Singapore, San Francisco, and more.
L4 is a small team building Web 3: a decentralized web that removes middlemen and incentivizes users to contribute. We've done research on blockchain scalability, launched open source projects, contributed heavily to the Ethereum Foundation, and launched large ecosystem support funds in the industry.
Terminal helps companies create world-class technical teams through "Remote Operations as a Service" — a complete solution that delivers Recruiting, Operations, Workspace Development, Human Resources, plus Professional Learning and Development.
PiinPoint is a fast, intuitive, and affordable platform to help businesses find the best locations for expansion. Over the last 5 years we have powered large retail and real estate organizations like Tim Hortons, Colliers, H&R Block, and Cushman & Wakefield.
Here are other projects I've either voluntarily started or been funded to work on (but aren't businesses):
At L4 we introduced the concept of generalized state channels and began implementing a framework for developers trying to build decentralized applications using them. State Channels is that framework and supports zero-fee state transitions on Ethereum with instant finality between finite groups of parties.
