NFT Feature Interview
Bizpreneur Middle East Interview with Lee Richter
Tell us about yourself. What is your background and what is it that you currently do?
My entrepreneurial journey began in my early 20’s upon entering the financial industry at Merrill Lynch in Washington, DC. Once I was a series-7 licensed stockbroker, the nuances of successful businesses, and I learned firsthand how to generate wealth from global leaders. Over the years, thousands of business owners and entrepreneurs consult with me. With this unique access and inspiration, I became fascinated with innovation and trendsetting along with high-level collaboration.
Because of my passion for connecting with international innovators making a positive impact on the planet, I launched the Global Leaders Collective, a company focused on educating and training entrepreneurs on NFT innovation and implementation. Along the way, we share insights and business acumen inspiring global leaders into action.
How did you get into NFTs?
NFT’s became a central focus for my life and my business starting in 2019 when one of my clients and I created a strategy to integrate NFT’s into the future of his business and into the client experience. Instantly, the entrepreneur in me was fascinated with this creative new world and pioneering way of thinking and we could see the potential and positive impact it could have in the global marketplace. Since that conversation, my team and I have spent time educating ourselves and other business owners about NFT opportunities. In addition, we have designed NFT product launches and we have collected and produced more than 150 NFTs and digital assets.
