The IQ Brew: Lee Bratcher, Texas Blockchain Council
IN-PERSON & VIRTUAL EVENT
The IQ Brew is a networking and educational series featuring short presentations from entrepreneurs, small businesses and subject-matter experts. The goal of The IQ® Brew is to share lessons learned and to have the Richardson business community hear about the successes and challenges faced while starting and growing a business. Come join us for coffee and conversation every 2nd and 4th Thursday of the month!
On Thursday, January 13, The IQ® Brew will feature Lee Bratcher, President and Founder of the Texas Blockchain Council, located in the Richardson IQ®! The Texas Blockchain Council (TBC) is an industry association with more than 65 member companies that seeks to make Texas the jurisdiction of choice for blockchain innovation. The TBC helped to research two pieces of blockchain legislation that were passed in the 87th Legislative session and were signed into effect by Governor Abbott. The TBC recently hosted the Texas Blockchain Summit in Austin at which speakers like Senator Ted Cruz, Senator Cynthia Lummis and SEC Commissioner Hester Peirce addressed the sold-out audience.
Lee is also a Captain in the US Army reserves working as Tech Scout for the 75th Innovation Command that supports Army Futures Command. Formerly, Lee was a political science professor at Dallas Baptist University teaching international relations and blockchain courses. Lee received his blockchain instructional training from the IBM Watson Research Center in New York.
Lee was awarded a master’s in International Relations from St. Mary’s University and is in his sixth year as a Ph.D. candidate at UT Dallas with a research emphasis on blockchain land registries. Lee lives in Richardson, TX with his wife Becca and their two daughters.
