Willy began his career in tech at the young age of 13, when he built and launched his first website, TreeHouse Studios, to share his innovative Flash games and animations with the world. While he may look a few years older now, his passion for entrepreneurship is stronger than ever. When he was a student at the University of Colorado, Willy built and launched JustLegal.com, a SaaS-enabled marketplace connecting people with lawyers.
JustLegal went on to win numerous awards, including top 10 global startups from IBM and LAUNCH in 2016, top 6 legal tech startups at the ABA Techshow in 2017, and 2014 Venture of the Year from the Boulder Chamber of Commerce. In December 2017, JustLegal’s technology assets were purchased by DigitalTown Inc.
Now, Willy has his sights set on the blockchain. Between working on his own blockchain projects, Coz and Bitfract, Willy advises enterprises on the disruptive commercial applications of blockchain technologies within their organization.
