He shared about his business in one interview. He said, “The core of our company is technology and blockchain infrastructure. Bit5ive allows us to operate in the blockchain space at maximum efficiency while delivering cost savings to our end users. Because global financial markets are increasingly becoming decentralized, Bit5ive uniquely positions us to be a market leader in this space.
In this light, I have always had an entrepreneurial spirit. After a brief NFL stint, I worked as a consultant to a super-regional bank in Cincinnati, OH. My work there involved helping professional athletes find their financial footing as they journeyed through their professional careers. I would soon branch off the consulting role into a full partnership with one of my former clients and teammates in the Spirits industry. We developed several super-premium brands that catered to high-net-worth individuals, including a collaboration with MetLife Stadium.
However, we faced significant challenges in inventory control and tracking. Our solution to this challenge was to create and develop VOLUM (patent pending). VOLUM is an industry-leading supply-chain management company that takes advantage of blockchain technology by streamlining the supply chain process.
VOLUM searches for companies with disruptive business models and compelling revenue stories, favoring those that possess intellectual properties. VOLUM abides by an overarching strategy to combine synergistic companies in a portfolio that will benefit from one another or from a common infrastructure and, whenever possible, a single token for blockchain-based operations.”
