Blockchain Experts Coming To Duke
Dinner with Jesse Grushack (CEO of Ujo Music) - April 12th, 7pm-8pm, The Loop
Bio: Jesse is a graduate from Union College with a degree in Computer Science and Economics. Throughout school, Jesse found an equally strong passion for electronic music and crypto currencies leading to a senior editor position at DancingAstronuat.com when he was just a Sophomore. As Bitcoin was still an emerging technology when it was time to secure a summer internship, Jesse decided to enter the music industry at ID&T North America where he spent two months as the managing director of marketing for TomorrowWorld. After Union, Jesse went on to work for SFX Entertainment, managing cashless payment technology and access control at live events; in addition to conducting research into the future of visitor event identification. Jesse left SFX in December 2014 determined to find another company that promised to make a difference in the world. In the beginning of 2015, Jesse found ConsenSys and immediately got involved in the unnamed music project. Fast forward almost two years and Ujo Music is currently developing blockchain + music infrastructure.
