CXO – Chariot Payments

I'm currently applying the power of distributed ledger technology (DLT) to help facilitate the transition away from the antiquated payments rails of the 20th Century. The world is experiencing rapid financial experimentation and evolution; with new payments rails and Decentralized protocols - Chariot is a critical infrastructure play for these economic transitions - and represents an essential upgrade to the antiquated fiat payment systems - necessary for our digital, hyperconnected world. I and Chariot's amazing engineering team salvaged a previous failed startup through a complete rebrand/reorg/restructure/recapitalization after inexperienced founders quit without realizing the potential of revolutionary technology. With a professional team, Chariot is adequately positioned to launch. I've hired world-class individuals into the CEO & COO roles, and despite colossal market disruptions in banking, decentralized finance, and even with our former banking and integration partners dissolving, we're moving ahead towards launch. I've worked on >10 startups - Lack of grit (the ability to keep going after setback while learning from mistakes and yet still inspiring people) is why some quit before even understanding the potential of what they can create. ** I have experiences in: AR/VR tech, fintech, broadcasting/streaming tech, wearable tech, entertainment tech, deep field work, advanced research, and in developing curricula/partnerships for higher education and research. Recent (past 5 years) focus has been capital raising, business development, and mitigating bad actors. FOCUS: Fintech Early Stage Business Development Capital Raising Strategic Relations & Positioning Electronic Platform & Product Development Project & Program Management University/Industry Relations and Development Deep Field Research I have a personal goal to support R&D necessary for progress towards human habitability and sustainability in space.
