Alex Bausch is Co-Chairman of Becon and Managing Partner at Turiq. BECON is a global and cross-sector platform for collaboration, networking and advancing Blockchain industry solutions. BECON’s portfolio of events and publications demystifies blockchain technology and provides crucial insight on how blockchain technology disrupts existing businesses models. TuriQ empowers blockchain startups, entrepreneurs, corporations, researchers, investors and funds. We not only help businesses design, launch and scale their blockchain ventures, but also help investors with Initial Coin Offering (ICO) investments for their portfolios. We use a hybrid approach to funding by managing the Initial Coin Offering (ICO) process while at the same time raising capital off-line from investors and/or funds. Our TuriQ Studio is pivotal in our model, linking deep Blockchain experience and knowledge with business and investment strategies.
