DAVOS, SWITZERLAND – December 24, 2018 – Serial entrepreneur, 24-year-old Yusuf Berkan Altun, is set to launch a venture capital fund at a Gala Dinner for High Net Worth Individuals (HNWI). The event will take place at the Hotel Seehof Davos on the 24th January during the World Economic Forum 2019.
Yusuf will be collaborating with two other young, serial entrepreneurs, Alex von Mühlenen(23) and Dr. Evan Luthra(24) to launch Blockchainpark- a venture capital fund for decentralized ledger and blockchain start-up companies. Only the most promising start-ups get the opportunity to join the Blockchainpark incubation program.
Consequently, the trio have carefully selected 130 HNWIs to attend the invitation only event where they will pitch four projects to their unique network. The team will mentor them to develop their business case, realize an MVP and acquire funding.
Yusuf is an expert at building best strategies for blockchain adoption in governments/regions-basis. He is already implementing Blockchain technology to more than 4 governments. This young, yet seasoned entrepreneur already owns multiple businesses in Switzerland and Dubai which he started before the age of 22 and while pursuing his studies. Despite the demands of studying, Yusuf successfully managed to juggle his studies and businesses demonstrating his ability to stay self-motivated, organized and work under pressure.
Questioned about the motivation for hosting a gala dinner to launch the venture capital, Yusuf explained: “Trends indicate that blockchain technology will become the new technology revolution. I have experienced first-hand the benefits of this blockchain first hand and would like to lend my knowledge, expertise and resources to set promising start-ups on the path to success.”
