Joint Venture: Disberse - Distributing Aid through Distributed Ledgers
Zerado Team has walked a very exciting path ever since we agreed to restructure and walk it as an independent company almost a year ago. When asked why have we decided to do it on our own, the answer was, to be able to govern ourselves independently, to take exciting and well calculated risks, and to better align with the needs of our sector and stakeholders.
Over that time, we ve advised some of the largest and some of the smallest organisations. We ve worked with governments, and with startups. We ve attracted some new and exciting talent, and we ve managed to retain the agility that allows us to travel internationally on a moments notice, explore Middle East partnerships from the middle of an American desert, and meet some incredible individuals.
We have set our business to be active in the following four areas:
- We advise, on the cryptography, distributed ledger, regulation, policy and other matters.
- We educate, both internally and externally, through articles, courses and interviews.
- We research, to support our client needs and to take a peek beyond the horizon.
- We build, (and define, and design) and we have a range of products that we re marketing.
Our team has always wanted to do more. We wanted to support the charity sector. In the first few months, we discussed the idea of spending summer together working in developing countries, so we were extremely pleased when we met Ben Joakim and his concept for revolutionising humanitarian aid.
Three months ago, we decided to form a joint venture yet another unique possibility afforded to by remaining independent and vendor and industry agnostic we simply agreed to form a company together, to commercialise this idea. Zerado provides technological, regulatory and ancillary support, whilst Ben leads the business bringing together his expertise within international development and social enterprise.
