Jeremy Wood

Chief Strategy Officer & Founder IOHK

Jeremy is a Colorado-based technology entrepreneur who immediately upon finishing Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis, packed a suitcase, and bought a one-way ticket to Asia. While living in Osaka, Japan, Jeremy was bitten by the crypto-bug in 2013 and is a founding member of the Kansai Bitcoin Meet-up. He soon became entranced by the potential of next-generation blockchains and joined Ethereum at the end of 2013, managing operations. After leaving Ethereum, Jeremy consulted on cryptocurrencies before starting Input Output with Charles Hoskinson in 2015. He moved back to the US in 2018. Jeremy believes that the future of fintech will progress only through experimentation and research, and by promoting collaboration between diverse groups and organizations.
