Martin Kassing with upvest joins us to discuss how any company can store financial assets on the blockchain.
Martin began his career in private equity at Avedon Capital Partners. He worked 5 years as a manager at the firm investing in 5+ leading software and engineering companies across Europe. The private equity fund successfully raised EUR 300m+ and was partially sold to Goldman Sachs.
Still in his mid twenties, he faded out the private equity career path to start his own ventures. As a COO he led the fintech ShopCo, a browser extension to checkout on any website with just one click. The business expanded from Germany to the US to disrupt how individuals buy products online. ShopCo was acquired by Klarna.
In 2017 Martin returned to his hometown Berlin and joined Finleap as CPO in Berlin. Quite quickly he figured out blockchain will disrupt financial markets. End of 2017 Upvest was born.
