André Nakano de Melo
Andre is an experienced professional that worked in both developing and developed markets for large multinational companies, SMEs, and startups. At McKinsey, he served many financial institutions in Australia and Asia-Pacific across retail banking, corporate banking, institutional banking, asset management, pension funds and retirement savings, general, health and life insurance. After creating two startups in Australia that led to hands-on experience in the challenges of scaling projects due to the lack of resources, he became fascinated by the success of ICOs in raising capital. Innovative and disruptive ideas seen on many ICOs have proved to him that businesses leveraging decentralized applications built on blockchain technologies are going to radically change our lives leading to a revolution only experienced after the mass adoption of the internet. He is particularly fascinated by how AI will rapidly advance over the next couple of years, once blockchain starts to become the invisible force behind every application used in our daily lives.
