We’ve seen what happens when the bulk of our data falls into the hands of the few—elections are manipulated; lies flourish and spread—there are real consequences to fake news. Enter Amber Baldet, a member of Fortune’s 40 Under 40, and co-founder and CEO of a company which makes it easier to build, distribute, find, and use software that treats your data better. In clear, info-packed talks she examines how the next generation is pushing back against the big tech companies who broke the world.
“Amber Baldet handily bridges the divide between Wall Street and the crypto set.”— Fortune 40 Under 40
Baldet is the co-founder and CEO of Clovyr, an organization which helps consumers, developers, and businesses implement the decentralized technologies which will help us take back our data and restore our digital privacy. Prior to the startup world, she led JP Morgan’s Blockchain Center of Excellence—one of Wall Street’s first high-profile initiatives to harness blockchain technologies. There, she helped develop Quorum, which “has since become one of the most popular places for corporations and governments to start building blockchain projects” (Times). “I have a relatively unique view on where we’re going,” she says of her ability to bring together the corporate and hacker camps. In fact, she was a Featured Speaker on the subject at Austin’s SXSW Festival in 2019, explaining how to “bridge the divide between Wall Street and the crypto sets.”
Since its founding, Baldet has served as the Chair of the Financial Industry Working Group within the Enterprise Ethereum Alliance. She has delivered speeches at SXSW, MIT, Wharton, Harvard, Cornell, EthCC, Defcon, Money 20/20, Consensus, and other prestigious events. She has also been named to CoinDesk’s 10 Most Influential in Blockchain and is the recipient of the Microsoft Award for Corporate Innovation.
