New Economies was founded by Alice Hlidkova and Lucas Cervigni in 2018. It was first a YouTube channel that featured interviews of founders of Blockchain tech. News of the interviews spread on social media, and we launched neweconomies.com, an independent and exclusive blockchain online news portal. As we grew 25% per month in viewership, the two created New Economies LTD.
The New Economies Story
At New Economies, we believe there is a better way to tell the Blockchain story than reading a white paper or pitch deck. A more entertaining and inviting way, where founders and entrepreneurs are excited to showcase their revolutionary ideas. We capture their passion on video and that’s what we do best.
New Economies focuses on the innovative, honest and practical projects that are supporting the growth of the Blockchain industry. We rock at video content. Whether we are shooting the interviews at NASDAQ, the London Stock Exchange or at independent studios, we bury the fear, uncertainty and doubt (FUD) and infuse humanness to emerging tech through storytelling.
Our advisory services propelled our efforts forward, by helping us establish quality, long-term partnerships with not only our founders and early adopters but also corporations and governments. We now have access to a network of investors who are not afraid of blockchain tech and we are proud of that. As patrons of Blockchain stewardship and independent media focused on this emerging tech, we continue to cover virtual currencies in various markets and related innovation for your leisure, entertainment and thoughtful insights met first hand.
Alice Hlidkova is a visionary, futurist, and a blockchain consultant and writer, based in Chicago. She helped launch MetroLab Network, a Carnegie Mellon University startup that deploys technologies such as IOT applications, traffic sensors, and autonomous vehicle pilot programs to cities for testing (the organization received funding from the White House and was recognized by President Obama in the first 10 months of its inception). Alice founded her creative consulting agency, Through the Changing Glass LLC, to advise tech startups on positioning and capital raise in Silicon Valley.
In 2017, Alice joined the founding team of Pitch Investors Live, the only blockchain company for entrepreneurs and startups to pitch investors live, 24/7, via the app. Through her agency, Alice advises numerous blockchain companies including the Women in Blockchain Impact Group (WIBI.io) and serves as the Strategic Partnerships Architect for leading blockchain news portal, Missblockchain.tech, where she is also featured as one of the main contributing writers.
Alice has advised over 20 blockchain projects led by startups, corporations and governments, in over a dozen countries including the United States, Switzerland, the United Kingdom and Singapore. Her expertise includes PR/media, marketing, strategic partnerships and investor relations. She has authored/co-authored over 200 articles on the blockchain industry for Bitcoin News, Bitcoin Talk, Merkle, Coinidol, Inc. and Forbes Magazines. Alice holds a Masters in Public Administration (MPA) from Carnegie Mellon University.
