This episode is sponsored by EY.

Decentralized autonomous organizations (DAOs) are enabling entrepreneurs to rapidly raise funding and reach global markets in countries where traditional structures might not be effective or even available.

Joining “Money Reimagined” hosts Sheila Warren and Michael Casey is Geoffrey See, founder of Choson Exchange, an organization training North Koreans in entrepreneurship, and chief DAOist at Poko, which focuses on replacing LLCs with DAOs in emerging markets. See joins to explain the unique value DAOs offer to entrepreneurs in frontier hubs worldwide.

See explains that an on-chain governance structure can offer stability and security to a newly founded company in ways that existing institutions might not and enable access to an enthusiastic global market of investors and customers. The question of regulation and when the regulatory tone might sway against this new corporate structure remains a challenge entrepreneurs must prepare for.
