SpringRole is glad to welcome Christian Busch, CEO of the German Accelerator NYC, on board as an advisor. Christian’s input to our vision of building SpringRole will be invaluable.
Why we chose Christian?
Most ICOs are so involved in creating a product and acquiring funds that they forget one of the most fundamental building blocks of any business: business development(aka partnerships). We started SpringRole, with the primary goal to serve our investors and users to the best of our ability. We needed someone on our board who knows what it takes to run a successful business. With Christian, we have someone whose business knowledge is truly inimitable.
Christian’s specialties include growth marketing, crowdfunding and business development and is an active angel investor and startup advisor

“SpringRole’s idea of using the blockchain technology and AI to disrupt the endorsement industry fascinates me. Having been involved in the business world for nearly two decades, I have seen how companies get consistently duped by lofty promises that are not substantially backed up. It is about time we had a system which made the endorsement industry honest.” — Christian
“I am delighted to have Christian on our advisory board. His expertise in business development will give us an extra edge in attaining our goals and finding valuable partnerships that enhance our growth. Having him on our side will enable us to give the best possible service to our investors.” — Kartik
