Sukhi Jutla Becomes Women’s Entrepreneur Ambassador of Westmont Enterprise Hub

Blockchain entrepreneur and MarketOrders Co-Founder Sukhi Jutla was recently chosen by Westmont Enterprise Hub to become their Women’s Entrepreneur ambassador. This new vibrant start-up facility, which is part of University of West London (UWL), aims to support and encourage entrepreneurship.

 

 

 

Empowering entrepreneurs

Westmont Enterprise Hub will link entrepreneurs with investment, business support, and University expertise to help them succeed and is a major boost for start-up businesses in the region.
With already more than 20 start-ups and 450 members, the Hub has connections to more than 500 businesses and plans to double its number of start-ups by the end of the year.
Sukhi commented: ‘The Hub is a wonderful initiative to cultivate and spark the incredible entrepreneurial talent growing in West London. The Hub benefits from the facilities of the University as well as connections to investors as well as other peer groups. West London has always been a thriving entrepreneurial area and its fantastic to see this infrastructure to support this thriving ecosystem.’

Laurence Geller CBE, Chancellor, University of West London, added: “Future growth in the economy depends on more people having the skills, knowledge and confidence to start new businesses. Through the Westmont Enterprise Hub, the University is supporting and inspiring students and the local community to achieve their dream of starting or growing a business.”

 

 

An Ambassador to lead the way

Sukhi’s role will involve advisory, inspiration, and leadership. Experience is gold, and Sukhi has got a lot of it through her career. Graduating from Royal Holloway, University of London after attending the local Ealing college and working in corporate finance, Sukhi wasn’t meant to be an entrepreneur. After a decade, she left the corporate world and explained her transition to entrepreneurship in her book ‘Escape the Cubicle: Quit the job you hate. Create a life you love’.
After 10 years of being an entrepreneur, several ups and downs and a few mistakes, she has become a fulfilled business woman and a thought leader in the tech space. Indeed, she has been recognised by a number of industry awards including the Asian Women of Achievement Awards, Management Todays ’35 Women Under 35′ and named a Top 100 European Digital Pioneer by The Financial Times and Google.

Sukhi gave us her insight on what it’s like to be an entrepreneur: ‘Most people think of the Richard Branson types of personalities when they think about entrepreneurship but it’s not always like that! I believe we all have the entrepreneurial spirit and it can be expressed in many different ways. My experience brings with it real insider knowledge on what it’s really like to be an entrepreneur and grow a business from scratch, how to deal with setbacks and how to keep moving forward. I will share my learning with the Hub community and encourage more people to consider stating a business, especially in West London.’

MARKETORDERS COO QUOTED IN CHINESE NASDAQC

Bitcoin is replacing Western Union and MoneyGram and changing the global money transfer industry

 

It is reported that Bitcoin (BTC) can completely change the global remittance industry. Currently, more than $600 billion is moved annually from different countries, including the United States.

Cryptographic currency is also a great tool for smaller, cheaper and faster transactions. Virtual currency makes the whole process error-free and untrustworthy.

In a conversation with MarketOrders Chief Operating Officer BlockPublisher, Sukhi Jutla commented:

“Bitcoin is the first use case for payments and financial transactions. Therefore, its relevance to the remittance industry is very high and relevant. It is a proven model and one of the most trusted encryptions.”

The Money Transfer Operator (MTO) is an important participant in the entire remittance process because it oversees remittances sent to another country. MTO allows individuals and companies to remit money to the country and pay for services. MTO is supported by remittance software providers (RSPs) such as the well-known MoneyGram and Western Union.

There are only a few large companies on the market, including MoneyGram and Western Union. They have multiple locations and jurisdictions, and they are known all over the world. In addition, they do not have a fixed transaction cost and their share varies by location.

Still, the remittance industry should perform better, reduce costs, and improve trading time.

Bitcoin may be a very useful solution to these problems. Digital currency ensures the security of transactions and the speed of transfer. At the same time, the transaction can be verified without the participation of a third party. Although it is not free, the Bitcoin network has the lowest cost compared to existing systems.

There have been companies trying to release their own virtual currency to improve their services and still control the way transactions are handled. JPMorgan is currently developing JPM Coin. As Mark Moss, founder of Signal Profits, said, these companies are not aware of how cryptocurrencies will replace their businesses.

With Bitcoin, people have real ownership of their money and funds. They can also trade funds on a global scale, anytime, anywhere. In the future, Bitcoin can be a replacement for current systems.

MarketOrders Co-Founder, Sukhi Jutla, was recently named as one of the UK’s top 100 Women in Tech. She recieved her award on Thursday 31 January during the awards ceremony taking place at the London County Hall, London.

Only two days after receiving its certificate as a Top 100 European Digital Pioneer by The Financial Times and Google, Sukhi Jutla couldn’t be prouder: “I’m honoured to be named as a Top 100 Woman in Tech in the UK. The UK is one of the best places to launch your tech career and I hope this award continues to inspire more women into tech careers and show you can make a huge and lasting impact”.

Since September 2018, WeAreTechWomen has been searching the UK for the best female tech talent in the country. They received over 500 nominations from across the UK and Northern Ireland and 28,000 votes of support from across the globe. The calibre of entries for these awards was exceptional and all of the judges stated how difficult it was to arrive at the shortlist due to the amazing achievements of the nominees.

 

 

Vanessa Vallely OBE, Founder of WeAreTechWomen said, “At WeAreTechWomen we have made it our personal mission to shine a spotlight on women working in tech. Our strategic aim is to highlight 500 female future leaders in technology by 2022. The response to this year’s awards has been fantastic and calibre of entries has been outstanding! I am so proud to see so many women in tech recognised for their achievements and look forward to celebrating our winners and their achievements.”

Author of three books and World’s First #1 Bestselling ‘Blockchain’ Author, Sukhi and her team launched MarketOrders in 2016, with the ambition of evolving the gold and diamond jewellery industry using technology.

MarketOrders named on BusinessCloud’s 301 Female Tech Trailblazers list.

 

MarketOrders is pleased to announce their co-founder and COO, Sukhi Jutla is named as a Female Tech Trailblazer by the latest list announced by Business Cloud.

 

The list is made up of everybody from household names to inspirational women at the start of a journey in tech who have the potential to change the industry. The list is published online at Business Cloud as well in the Q4 2018 print edition.

 

Chris McGuire, BusinessCloud’s editor said:

We’ve ripped up the rule book…rather than limit ourselves to 101 names on our must-read lists we’ve taken off the brakes by publishing the names of 301 female entrepreneurs and pioneers of tech. One statistic that is trotted out is that only 17 per cent of people in the tech sector are women. We need to increase the number of women working in tech and we hope that by publishing a list of 301 female entrepreneurs and pioneers of tech, they’ll become role models to the next generation.’’

 

Ram Krishnna Rao, MarketOrders CEO said:

‘I’m very proud to have a diverse team as we actively encourage and promote more women in tech at MarketOrders so it’s great that my co-founder and COO Sukhi is recognised as a tech pioneer and serves as a role model to other women considering a career in technology.’
