A Blockchain Startup – The Building Blocks

June 20, 2019 @ 5:45 pm - 8:00 pm CDT


What is a “Blockchain Startup” anyway? Come find out!

Is a blockchain startup any different from another startup? What are some of the challenges?

In this week’s workshop, learn the dos and don’ts of starting a new project in the Blockchain space. Hear what challenges are facing founders today and how to overcome them. Startups deal with the already monumental task of being a “startup,” mix in the added challenge of a new technology, and the odds are compounded against them to gain any sort of traction in the marketplace.

Join us as we share strategy, practical experience and ways to navigate your startup in the world of blockchain.


The workshop will be conducted by James Peñas and Shehan Chandrasekera.

James is founder and CEO of PayLight Energy, an energy payment and peer-to-peer blockchain platform serving the electricity industry. PayLight Energy is part of the PayLight companies, which is using blockchain to develop platforms in multiple industries.

Shehan is a CPA in the state of Texas and New Jersey. His recent article on “Virtual Currency and Tax Ramifications” was featured in “The Tax Adviser” magazine sponsored by AICPA.
