Branded as the Leonardo da Vinci of Fintech, Professor Julio Alejandro, is coming to give a series of talks on how to build a great tech start-up and what VC’s are looking for.


We will begin with a quick 101 session aimed to get you up to speed with the latest in the Fintech industry and the technology surrounding it. Blockchain, AI/ML, IoT, and Machine to Machine algorithmic trading, ownership, and decision-making will be discussed.

KodyPay will detail their strategy and ideas behind blockchain and its use to disrupt the electronic point of sale industry.

After a quick pizza break, we will cover the characteristics of a great tech startup, monopolization and creation of a new market; economies of scale and network effects (virality); defensibility and open source. We will also delve into what Europe’s largest VC and Angel’s investors have in their investment portfolio, what strategies they use and what problems they look to solve.
