For the second event in the SingularityU London Blockchain Series we are diving into Blockchain Architecture and welcoming Harrison Comfort from R3.
R3 is an enterprise software firm building blockchain platform Corda, designed specifically for financial services.

Blockchain, also known as the incorruptible ledger is claiming to transcend businesses and financial services across the globe.We are bringing our audience for a deeper dive into Blockchain architecture, to understand what is under the hood beyond the hype.

Harrison Comfort joined R3 in 2015 and is responsible for driving commercial outcomes through R3’s robust partnership network. Before joining the Sales team, Harrison was Vice President of Finance, and supported the R3 fundraising process and conducted business cases in trade finance and cross-border payments. Prior to R3, Harrison served as an associate at Oak Hill Capital Partners, specializing in financial technology investments, and as an analyst at Bank of America’s global leveraged finance division.
