About this event

Danny is the CEO and co-founder of CoinCorner, a Bitcoin exchange in the UK. A software developer turned entrepreneur, Danny first heard of Bitcoin during University in 2009, but didn't pay attention to it until 2011/12 while working at an Internet startup that looked to use it as a competitive advantage.

After this company was successfully acquired, Danny went on to co-found a software company in 2012. Providing software solutions, the business worked with clients such as Microsoft and Tunstall Health Care. After trying to buy and mine Bitcoin (both proved difficult to do in 2013) with his co-founder, they recognised that there was a gap in the UK market for a safe and simple place to buy Bitcoin.

CoinCorner was founded in 2014 with the aim of making Bitcoin easy and accessible to UK customers and now, 6 years on, CoinCorner is one of the UK's leading Bitcoin exchanges.

While Danny’s entrepreneurial journey sounds laden with good fortune, his success has warranted resilience, persistence and unshakable optimism in the face of setbacks. The need to make a difficult decision fast, a relentless will and sustained hard work is the winning formula for success in this case.

In an intimate fireside chat, and first in-person event pre-Covid-19, Katie Nicholson, Co-Director of Startup Grind Isle of Man and Co-Founder of founded, will table topics sure to inspire and influence others to follow in Danny’s footsteps:

• A can-do attitude and ability to overcome barriers – common pitfalls and solutions

• Understanding and countering risks

• Skills investment

• Funding struggles and triumphs

• Competing on a global basis

Meeting Risk with Resilience: in conversation with Danny Scott, CEO and Co-Founder of CoinCorner is hosted by Startup Grind Isle of Man.
