Jake MccGwire, Co-founder of Evopass

Jake is the CEO and Co-founder of Evopass, a startup dedicated to developing software that will eradicate ticket touting and fraud at Live events. 

A BESS graduate, Jake became interested in blockchain during his third year internship, ultimately going on to win Europe's largest blockchain hackathon with Evopass in his final year at Trinity. Evopass went on to continuing to work with blockchain before eventually deciding to pivot away from the technology once they began to recognise certain limitations. 

Jake offers an entrepreneurs perspective to working with blockchain and gives some examples of when or when not to use it.
