Paradigm, the world’s largest Web3, Crypto, and Blockchain venture capital firm needed to address the evolving crypto and blockchain tax climate for their funds and portfolio companies globally. Cowen Partners Executive Search was identified as a strategic partner due to our deep understanding of global tax, tax laws, lobbying, and venture capital.
The solution was multifaceted, due to Paradigm being a new venture capital fund it was clear this person had to be hands on and tackle the basic fund formation & compliance issues any fund of their size would face. Furthermore, Paradigm wanted this person to become the world’s foremost expert in Web3 taxation. Given crypto and blockchain taxation is still in its infancy, we knew this person had to be highly experienced, a thought leader in taxation, tax law, and legislation, and willing to take a stand publicly. Finally, they had to be consultative, Paradigm’s portfolio of companies is wide ranging. From small startups with $1M invested, to established and sophisticated multi billion dollar exchanges, this person had to be able to right fit solutions and interface with founders and their teams, at their level.
