Larry Sharpe & Crypto - Startup Cities

New York City has been called the "Finance Capital of the World" for good reason, but it could be falling short of that title. On August 8, 2015 the New York BitLicense came into effect. At least ten bitcoin companies announced they were stopping all business in New York State because of the new regulations. The New York Business Journal called this the "Great Bitcoin Exodus". If cryptocurrencies are the future of finance, why should the capital of finance be hamstrung by this erroneous regulation?

Larry Sharpe is running for governor to change and innovate the state. He is one of the most supportive and knowledgeable politicians on the issue of cryptocurrencies. Join Startup Cities as we sit down for a fireside chat with Larry and discuss his solutions for the city and cryptocurrency.

Larry (L) is a Bronx native, a Marine Corps veteran, an entrepreneur, and a management consultant with 15 years of experience mentoring international executives, entrepreneurs & sales people. He is also a teacher, previously serving as a guest instructor for business management and leadership at institutions such as Yale University, Columbia University, Baruch College and John Jay College. He is now running for Governor of New York in order to make education more effective through innovation, reform the criminal justice system to focus on rehabilitation, and build an economy that works for all of New York State.

The Startup Cities event series' mission is to create a nexus of information and action. That nexus includes research produced by academics, technology envisioned by entrepreneurs, and support funded by both private and public investors. Each event hopes to champion the ideas making cities more dynamic.
