Jeremy Gardner is an Entrepreneur-in-Residence at Blockchain Capital. He has been involved in the blockchain sector since 2013, and has founded several successful ventures in the industry.
In early 2014, Jeremy founded what is now known as the Blockchain Education Network (BEN). What began as a small hodgepodge of “bitcoin clubs”, quickly exploded into a global network of student organizations, spanning every continent, over thirty countries, and nearly four hundred schools today. Jeremy still serves as chairman of the board.
In late 2014, Jeremy co-founded Augur, a decentralized prediction market platform built on the Ethereum blockchain. Jeremy traveled the world, raising awareness for Augur. This culminated in the first “ICO” on Ethereum for Augur’s native token, REP, raising $5.2 million. Today, REP’s market capitalization hovers around $400 million, with Augur planning to launch in summer 2017.
Since joining Blockchain Capital, Jeremy has helped various portfolio companies navigate the industry, and bolstered their operations and marketing. He is also the editor-in-chief of Distributed, the only print magazine dedicated to blockchain technology.
Gardner is the Co-Founder and Board Member of Unsung, a non-profit which aims to end hunger while creating a sharing economy through its app.
