Outsell for Startups Analyst Q&A: Will Jan of Outsell Inc. This interview is a little bit different than the ones we’ve done in the past. Usually, I go out and I find really interesting companies and we talk about all kinds of cool things like AI, Blockchain, Neural Networking, so on and so forth. Today, I turn internal to Outsell Inc., and interviewed one of our analysts and I’m really excited to share this discussion with Will Jan. Will is a VP and lead analyst here at Outsell, and covers Outsell’s research program in the credit, financial, governance, risk & compliance (GRC), and tax & accounting segments. His research includes competitive analysis, innovations (fintech, insurtech, regtech, and risktech), and disruptions in these areas to aid in opportunity-discovery. Will also leads Outsell’s coverage in blockchain, where he collaborates with the analyst team to uncover segment-specific opportunities. He provides guidance to vendors, and their investors and users, by bridging the supply-and-demand gap: How best to enhance information, data, and technology adoption. His guidance is amazing, he has supported a huge number of our clients, and what he’s writing about has been fascinating. In this discussion, Will and I spend a significant amount of time discussing blockchain, and how companies large and small are handling the adoption. We also dive into key topics and trends that he’s noticing, what are the top startups on his radar, which large companies are handling blockchain successfully, and much much more. So, without further ado, the man that has Chinese buffets as his power meal, and is a proud owner of the Star Wars Hexology… Will Jan.
