Andrew Gazdecki is a storyteller and has been an entrepreneur for a very long time, he started his first company, Bizness Apps, while still in college, which was an affordable mobile app development platform for small businesses, and initially, raised around $100,000 in funding. By the time Bizness Apps was acquired by private equity firm Think3, they had grown to $10M in annual recurring revenue, operating in 40 countries, and employing over 100 people.

His second business, Altcoin.io, was a decentralized exchange (DEX) for trading digital assets, by trading on their decentralized, non-custodial platform, traders could protect their assets. Altcoin.io became a champion of security in a market dominated by custodial platforms that put users’ funds at risk. By challenging the status quo, they were defending the rights of traders everywhere – a story that their prospects loved. This eventually led the company to be acquired by global investment firm BnkToTheFuture.
