Dr. Andrei-Dragos Popescu

Angel Investor and a Vision-driven entrepreneur/executive with career-long record of business growth and innovation.

Andrei helped in building great companies in Singapore, Austria, Italy and Romania with extraordinary people, while seeking continuous intellectual stimulation through a broad set of experiences in dynamic, challenging, and high-intensity environments. He has been engaged on helping organizations that evolve in challenging markets to break down the barriers that prevent them from reaching their potential, which operate in Scandinavia, Eastern Europe, China and Asia-Pacific.

Andrei is an active participant in the FinTech sphere, Crypto & Alternative Assets Class Ecosystems and the Blockchain/DLT communities in Southeast Asia, Europe and the USA; who attends meetups regularly, speaks at the conferences and advises on Blockchain/DLT/IoT/AI/ML/Alternative Investments & FinTech Projects.

As an alternative asset class management executive, Andrei is bridging new DeFi instruments, with traditional world’s best corporate and institutional investors, where financial digital assets are still in an early, maturing and evolving stage of their existence.

Andrei believes that the introduction of Financial Digital Assets into the financial services sector, will not only stabilize the investment landscape, but will radically disrupt old-school ways of the financial world.

Thanks to the increasing offer of FinTech solutions, the segment of alternative investments is opening up the trading sphere to assets that, until now, could not be traded quickly and easily, also will enable us to create faster and more cost-effective financial instruments.

His focus and interest are on Strategic Investments in Disruptive Technologies & Innovations, FinTech, Financial Innovations, Financial Digital Assets, Blockchain, DLT, Crypto Asset Trading Systems, Decentralized Finance (DeFi), dApps, Digital Markets & Trading Platforms, Data Science, Data Capital, Artificial Intelligence (ANI, AGI, ASI, ML, DL) Applications, AI based Automated Trading Strategies, and Business Strategy Implementations via AI systems.
