About this event

Taylor Monks, CEO of BasicBlock has grown the company in less than 5 years to a $78 million round earlier in 2022. He spent the first six months traveling the country with truckers to get a complete picture of their business and where he thought technology could add major value.

As the CEO of BasicBlock, Taylor has a demonstrated history of identifying trends and accurately predicting market strategies in both payments and transportation. With a strong background in tech and marketing, he leads the company’s product team and overarching R&D and customer acquisition initiatives. He’s the catalyst behind the BasicBlock team and is constantly pushing for velocity and growth. He attended Nebraska Wesleyan University before dropping out 6 credits shy of a degree to start BasicBlock and radically upturn an industry. He splits time between the company’s Lincoln and Chicago offices with his dog Mimi unwavering by his side.

We will be sitting down for a Fireside Chat with Taylor to discuss the story of BasicBlock to this point and how he is able to connect with customers.
