Jamie Burke

CEO & Founder at Outlier Ventures


Back in 2012 Jamie saw blockchains, smart contracts and cryptographically secure tokens in combination with other innovations in AI would birth the next phase of The Web.

As an early investor in Bitcoin and Ether Jamie went 'all in' during 2013 founding Outlier Ventures, Europe’s 1st venture fund and platform dedicated to blockchain and Web 3.0.

Since then he has gone on to become a world leading VC in the space and lead investor and strategic partner to billion dollar initiatives such as  IOTA, Evernym (Sovrin), Botanic (Seed) and Fetch.ai to name a few.

Jamie has gone on to lead the industry and pioneer the ‘convergence thesis’ which looks at the emergent opportunity of where blockchain-like decentralised technologies combine with other areas of deep tech like AI, IoT, Autonomous Robotics, 3D Printing and Mixed Reality and act as an accelerator.
