Techstars Web3 Convo Series: Fireside Chat w/ Tim Bos, Launchpool Web3 CTO and Founder/CEO of ShareRing

Dec 13, 2021

As the Web3 space is moving at a lightning-fast pace, we wanted the Web3 founder community to have the benefit of insights from some of the leading minds globally even before the Launchpool Web3 Techstars Accelerator kicks off in April 2022.

Since October, we’ve had four incredibly insightful fireside chats and crowd Q&A sessions as part of our Web3 Convo Series with:

All of the fireside chats are available on video in the links above, with audio-only podcast versions on the MoneyNeverSleeps podcast channel.

Next up on December 16th is Tim Bos, who is Founder and CEO of ShareRing, and also our CTO for the Launchpool Web3 Techstars Accelerator.  

Tim is now on his 3rd go-round as a startup founder having founded and exited both bioWatch and Keaz, and then founded ShareRing in 2018.  ShareRing has created an ecosystem where individuals and organisations can transact in a secure and trusted digital environment. Central to establishing high trust levels is ShareRing’s encrypted self-sovereign ID solution, based on their own blockchain technology, creating an immutable “fingerprint” of an individual’s verifiable personal identity and documents.   

This fireside chat and interactive crowd Q&A with Tim Bos and Pete Townsend, leader of the Launchpool Web3 Techstars Accelerator, will provide insights on:

  • Tim’s early experiences in tech from 3D video game art in the 1990’s to mining bitcoin in 2010 that shaped how he thinks about Web3  

  • The difference between being a first time founder and a 3rd-time founder

  • Leading indicators of what makes a high-quality Web3 project

This will be our last Web3 Convo Series fireside chat before applications close for the Launchpool Web3 Techstars Accelerator (apply here!) on December 22nd, so don’t miss it!
