James will take over the CEO reins of Satoshi Block Dojo from founder and original CEO Craig Massey, who will still remain as Chairman.
Like Craig, James is also a serial entrepreneur, and also with multi-million-pound business exits to his name.
The new Global CEO role has been created to spearhead Dojo’s expansion into new global territories as well as expansion of the business’ operations including a series of venture studios.
Satoshi Block Dojo is a BSV blockchain incubator, which takes early-stage tech start-ups through an intense 12-week programme, guiding and helping them refine and accelerate their digital products. At the end of the programme the start-ups are introduced to investors over a week of Investor Lunches, and thereby allowing the start-ups to scale up to the next level.
The incubator programme currently runs 3 times a year, with up to 12 start-ups in each cohort, incubating up to 36 new start-ups per year. Start-ups can come from any industry, so far they have included such diverse fields as music, MMA, NFTs, metaverse, gaming, real estate, ESG, surveys, payments, art and even adult. The Dojo sees the massive potential of blockchain to revolutionise almost every industry, and encourages founders with new and novel applications of the technology to apply for the programme.
The Dojo was set up in the UK in 2021 and has expanded rapidly, they are looking to expand their global footprint by taking their business concept to new territories, including the US and Far East.
James Marchant said “We are committed to opening a new Dojo incubator in Miami later this year alongside the launch of a new UK based venture studio. Further expansion plans include two new international incubators in 2023 and current targets include the Middle East and Asia as well as growing the venture studios to provide solutions for sectors that have approached us for help implementing BSV blockchain solutions“.
Craig Massey said “I am thrilled James has accepted the role, James is a seasoned entrepreneur with a wealth of start-up and investment experience, as our former CIO he is exactly the right guy for the role, and to take Dojo global”
