Steve Beauregard CEO & Founder of GoCoin

Jay Addison Technical and Media Advisor for CryptoBiz Magazine interviews Interviews Steve Beauregard Founder & CEO of GoCoin. Steve is serial entrepreneur with a keen eye for emerging technologies and the business instincts to develop companies in the critical path of the trends. In the early 90’s, Steve helped DIRECTV launch the first commercial satellite television service in the US and Latin American countries. He played a key role in the design and integration of their business systems and the in-country rollout of service. As the Internet gained steam, Steve identified email as the next “killer app” and launched a successful Enterprise Messaging and Collaboration practice for international fortune 100 companies. In 1998, Steve took that practice mobile after RIM showed him an early prototype of a two-way mobile email pager (the device was ultimately rebranded as the BlackBerry.) Recognizing the trend early, Steve positioned his company REGARD as the first west coast BlackBerry partner and at one point become the largest independent reseller of BlackBerry products in the US. After the Y2K craze, REGARD expanded into a high-end boutique Internet strategy firm to compete with Razorfish, March-First and the like. REGARD quickly added clients TRW, VPA (bought by Fidelity), DIRECTV and John Deere while the mobility division landed Sony Pictures, Universal Studios, Wells Fargo Bank, Countrywide, Hughes, LIONSGATE, Creative Artists Agency and myriad state & federal gov’t agencies. In 2003, REGARD opened an Indian software development subsidiary and established a nationwide reputation with RIM, Microsoft, AT&T, Sprint/NEXTEL, & Verizon a “go-to” mobile and eCommerce company. Steve has been COO of a publicly traded eCommerce business, conducted due diligence and made countless angel investments into startups, acted as outside business process and technology strategist to countless “C-Level” executives of Fortune-500 and SMB Businesses. Steve was featured in Entrepreneur Magazine (9/07), is often quoted in trade rags, and speaks at southern California universities & tradeshows on entrepreneurship, mobility, social media, and NOW cryptocurrencies!
