Introducing: Walter Teo
Founder & CEO of NELO
In this new series of articles, we want to introduce the people behind the NELO ecosystem. We will be introducing them individually every week as we get closer to our rebranding launch. This will allow our users to get to know each and everyone of our team members here at NELO and why/what they do here!
Without further ado, we present to you, Walter Teo, our founder and CEO of NELO.
What is your background and field of interest?
W: I graduated in the year 2004 from Coventry University, United Kingdom, with a Bachelor degree in Computer and Network. Since leaving university, I worked in the information technology (IT) industry for 14 years while growing a strong passion in the blockchain and cryptocurrency industry. I am a strong believer in blockchain development for future generations and believe that by starting NELO, we can grow closer to this vision.
How and why did you end up at NELO?
W: While I was working at Any Cloud Computing, I enjoyed gaming as well! Funnily enough that’s where I met Pat! And found out that we both have an interest in the NFT, crypto and the blockchain industry. From there we would talk about working together on a GameFi NFT project and that was when NELO Metaverse was born.
What exactly are you doing at NELO?
W: At NELO, I am in charge of all activities which involves our product, this includes our blockchain development and game development. But as NELO is a startup I wear many hats throughout the development process. This includes business development, operations, investor relations and working closely with our teams to ensure everyone is comfortable while working at their highest potential.
What are you most excited about regarding the future of NELO?
W: We’re excited to bring a GameFi-Metaverse oriented blockchain, the first of its kind, to seasoned and young developers as well as to our users! But developing and sharing a new technology with the world has been the most exciting part so far!
What are your personal hobbies and interests?
I would say spending time with my wife and kid and taking them out to enjoy good food!
