Hispanic Heritage Month – Chris Aguas
“Chris Aguas founder and CEO of CoreChain is tenacious about raising capital and he’s willing to do the hard things necessary to get a company off the ground. Chris decided a few years ago B2B payments were broken and launched a “war on checks” to replace paper with digital payments. With the advent of blockchain, he recognized the potential to radically transform how B2B payments are handled. His mission is to disrupt the old world of paper checks with the immense capabilities of blockchain technology to transform how enterprise commerce is conducted in the future. And we’re onboard to be part of that transformation.” – Ulu Ventures
