Fintech Entrepreneur Lamar Wilson encourages us all to find our own pioneering spirit.

Lamar lets love, freedom and light guide everything he does. And it’s led to a long list of pioneering “firsts,” including introducing the first Bitcoin wallet for the iPhone. In his talk, he shares his thoughts on what it means to be a pioneer—being comfortable in the uncomfortable, making sacrifices, and simply allowing yourself to create.

About the speaker

Lamar is passionate about technology and the endless possibilities it can provide. After graduating from the University of Kentucky with a B.S. in Finance, Lamar taught himself to develop and created 212ths, an enterprise media and software development firm. His enthusiasm for learning while at 212ths led him to develop Pheeva, a mobile bitcoin wallet; at the time the only bitcoin wallet that could be distributed on the Apple iPhone.

Continuing to pursue opportunities centered around blockchain technology, Lamar started Hijro, the world’s first trade finance blockchain network, designed to optimize working capital for businesses and streamline supply chain operations.

Currently, Lamar serves as the CETO (Chief Executive and Technology Officer) of Hijro and is heavily involved with the architecture of the software and day-to-day operations.
