Ben Bennett of Omnitude
Hall is joined by Ben Bennett, the Chief Operating Officer of EMEA at Omnitude. Ben’s background has always been in the commercial side of businesses. He has worked telesales, field sales, product sales, all the way through to more strategic and development roles in business. He eventually launched his own company, a consultancy, which focused on startups, essentially enabling businesses to understand their value proposition and then then take it to market. It was on that journey that he met Chris Painter, the CEO of Omnitude.
Ben speaks on what led him to the path he is on now and how Omnitude came to be. Ben gained a better understanding and working knowledge of what blockchain can do and saw a huge opportunity to use the technology to underpin a middleware layer. This enables systems to be integrated and talk to each other far more efficiently from a very basic level.
Omnitude started out as a an integration layer, a middleware layer purely as an ecommerce play, but has since evolved into what it is today. It is ultimately the only paid to blockchain middleware layer globally.
In this episode, you’ll learn more about:

How many companies are working in this space
Major challenges, barriers and risks in this space
