GENUINO Open Case Competition ’21

Program Synopsis

About the Job & Role:

GENUINO collaborates with brands, teams, athletes, musicians, and artists to create new models of consumer engagement. We connect sports, music, art, and fashion enthusiasts to the blockchain through NFTs. Consumers can buy, sell and trade authentic digital collectibles (NFTs) backed by blockchain-certified physical products in the GENUINO marketplace. Our patent-pending certification protocol, enabled by blockchain and IoT technology, bridges the digital and physical worlds to fight counterfeiting and strengthen brand-consumer relationships.

GENUINO, an early stage Italian start-up, is building their US go-to-market strategy. The specific focus for this project is how GENUINO can leverage their blockchain certification technology and community engagement platform across multiple sectors: sports, music, art, and fashion to build and grow revenue streams for all points of engagement in the life of the collectable (NFT + Physical).  This is holistic: how can all points of contact (athletes, teams, artists, musicians, fashion designers, collectors, and fans) monetize opportunities within the US as they look to gain value and enrich their experience with athletes and teams through the use of NFTs, proprietary to the GENUINO marketplace, which uniquely incorporates physical asset blockchain certification protocol.
