KorePartner: Peter Woodard, DLTMI
Born in: Toronto, Canada
Based in: London, UK
What was your first job?
My first proper job was for a London based Adtech startup which went onto be supported by Google Ventures
How and when did you get involved in the business industry?
Moving to London in my early 20’s I quickly needed to get moving. I luckily found my footing in the startup world and progressed into Fintech
How do you see the Digital Security’s scene today? In that aspect, is it possible to have an idea of what the next five years will bring?
There is a lot of noise in the industry currently and (rightly so) not a lot of action. Once regulators and ecosystem partners come online we will see an uptick in promising issuances. Next 5 years I see debt products focused at institutional players as the major winner. Biggest hurdle to this happening is getting said institutions comfortable, most importantly their compliance departments.
What does your company bring to the KorePartners Ecosystem?
DLTMI provides information disclosure and market intelligence framework which is then hosted on our closed-loop platform for select sponsors. We are backed by vertical agnostic capital groups in the EU and APAC region focused on blockchain and digital securities. Both demand and supply side are leveraging our experience to ultimately see a successful issuance life cycle.
What is it about the partnership with KoreConX that most aligns with your company strategy?
I have worked in proxy with KoreConX during my Fintech days and am very happy to see them enter the digital security ecosystem. They have laid a lot of the necessary groundwork to be a compliant and successful player. Exactly the type of company we are wanting to partner with.
*The KorePartners Ecosystem is a group of organizations that follows our governance standards and share with us the same goal: to provide entrepreneurs with the tools they need to grow their business.
