Esposito, Founder & President of Esposito Intellectual Enterprises, a holding company with 20+ years of taking a company’s vision and launching successfully into market, Radhika Iyengar, Founding Partner at StarChain Ventures, a Silicon Valley-based venture studio focused on the convergence of advanced technologies and enterprise blockchain expert, and Xenia Vyazemskaya, co-founder of It Takes Two content marketing and PR firm for startups in fintech and digital assets.
