By collaborating with clients, our SEO manager and the wider londonbusinessblog.com team, Shreya seeks to understand an audience before creating memorable, persuasive copy.

One of the most popular activities at a londonbusinessblog.com conference is watching first-rate early-stage founders compete against each other in a pitching competition. Seriously, who doesn’t love a pitch-off? And the Crypto Pitch-off is just one more reason to attend londonbusinessblog.com Sessions: Crypto on November 17 in Miami. Let’s take a look at the judges who have to impress our intrepid startups.

But first (hey, you had to see this coming), if you haven’t done the deed yet, buy your pass now. Changes in the crypto world are fast and furious – like Binance wanting to buy FTX but pulling out just over 24 hours later. Did you know that Binance founder CZ will be speaking at the event? You do not want to miss that.

Okay, back to the pitch-off. Be in the room as three of the brightest early-stage crypto startups take the stage in front of a live audience – for glory, for media and investor interest, and, drumroll, for an automatic spot in the Startup Battlefield 200 at Disrupt 2023 londonbusinessblog.com will select a cohort of 200 early-stage startups to receive a VIP Disrupt experience that will, to begin with, showcase all three days of the show for free.

The contenders will pitch their technology to this panel of expert VCs: Grace Isfordclient, Lux Capital; Wen-Wen Lam, partner, Gradient Ventures; and Will Nuellegeneral partner, Galaxy Ventures – check out their bona fides below.

Grace Isford invests in the nexus of web3, data infrastructure and applications of AI/ML. She focuses on crypto and blockchain infrastructure companies building the next-gen web3 stack, as well as data and machine learning startups that hyper-personalize user experiences and transform legacy industries.

At Lux, Isford works with companies such as Tactic, Goldsky and RunwayML. Before joining Lux, she worked at Canvas Ventures and Handshake (in product management) and received her BS and MS from Stanford University.

Before joining Gradient Ventures, Wen-Wen Lam was the CEO and co-founder of NexTravel (YCW15), a leading business travel solution serving thousands of customers such as Lyft, Twilio and Stripe. She grew the company to over $100 million in annual revenue before moving to TravelPerk in 2020.

Before founding NexTravel, Lam worked with startups in leadership roles. She received a BA in economics from UC Berkeley and her MBA from the USC Marshall School of Business, and began her engineering career at LinkedIn.

Will Nuelle focuses on early investments in protocol layer infrastructure, DeFi applications and software products. Nuelle started at Galaxy Ventures in research, where he developed quantitative risk software for trading.

Before joining Galaxy, he built incentive simulations for the Ethereum protocol FOAM as an intern. He has a BS degree in Mathematics and Architecture from Stanford University. He is a board member of Skolem Technologies and has led over 13 investments for Galaxy.
