As Zilliqa grows into a powerful global brand focused on offering utility-based commercial applications of blockchain, we’ve given much thought about how to make ZIL-related assets and dApps not just profitable but also usable, visible and accessible to people worldwide.
Bradley Laws has been appointed to lead this effort by helping build out our investor relations (across Europe and the US), accelerator programme and investment activities under ZILHive.
Strengthening ZILHive in its mission to accelerate web3 ideas, he will be implementing a vertical-agnostic approach to support founders at any stage of their business journey — the support will come from either grants, equity, and/or token investment.
Bradley brings over a decade of experience in investment management, startups and technology innovation to this role. Thanks to his previous stints in F6S and Techstars, Bradley has had cross-sector exposure to corporates, entrepreneurs and VCs while advising early and growth-stage companies on capital raising and investor relations. In his capacity as researcher at Judge Business School (University of Cambridge), he also gained significant exposure to exponentially growing tech like blockchain and Web3. Having experienced both traditional institutional fundraising and the dynamic venture capital world, we believe he is the right person to be part of Zilliqa’s new growth cycle.
Bradley had a few words to share on his new adventure with Zilliqa: “I believe that Zilliqa’s next-gen infrastructure, experienced team, and ambitious ecosystem growth plans mean that the protocol will remain at the forefront of this paradigm shift. During 2022, we plan to extend our ZILHive partnership network, expand to new geographies, and launch further funding initiatives to support developers and our ecosystem’s growth.”
