Meet the Founding Team

CEO
Nate Shaw

Nate was previously a Senior Associate at Vault's #1 Ranked IP Boutique Law Firm. During that time, he had the privilege of counseling numerous technology companies, including industry leaders in telecommunications and medical technology. Now, having put together the PredictEV team, Nate is eager to bring blockchain technology to the masses in a consumer-friendly way.

Nate earned an Electrical Engineering degree from Rice University and a Juris Doctorate from The George Washington University Law School. He is also a Certified Information Privacy Professional / US.

CTO
Brian Cohen

Brian studied Computer Science and Market Efficiency Theory at Rice University, and concluded after school that only entrepreneurship, self-learning, and high-stakes competition were worthy of large investments of his time and energy.

In those 10 years, Brian has been part of multiple startups, had multiple 5-digit tournament poker wins, and has been engrossed in blockchain technology since 2011. PredictEV embodies his vision for disrupting the predictive information industry.

COO
Andrew Sharp

Andrew is a life-long technologist, learning to write code and build & network computers at a young age from his two software engineer parents.

Andrew is an Opower & Oracle alum, creating and leading the Opower operations team charged with managing mission-critical 3rd-party services with annual operations of more than $35MM. Andrew managed and recruited through Opower's hyper-growth, Opower's IPO (2014), & Oracle's acquisition (2016) before co-founding PredictEV.

Andrew has a Chemical Engineering degree from Tufts University and graduated as a 2018 Harold M. Williams fellow with an MBA from the UCLA Anderson Graduate School of Management

General Counsel
Benjamin Kussman

Benjamin graduated with honors from George Washington University Law School in 2012. Prior to co-founding PredictEV, Ben practiced litigation and regulatory law in Washington, D.C. and Los Angeles offices of two Vault 100 law firms.

PredictEV is Ben's second foray into the prediction market space, having previously explored launching a peer-to-peer, social wagering platform. In connection with that endeavor, Ben provided legal counsel and performed significant research and market analysis.

Blockchain Developer
Tianyang Zhang

Tianyang Zhang is a PhD candidate at University of California, Los Angeles. His research focuses on the design and development of next generation electric vehicle charging systems. As part of this research, he invented a cryptocurrency-powered network that incentivizes participants to charge their electric vehicles on a renewable resources-friendly schedule. Tianyang received his Master's and Bachelor's degrees from Brown University and Politecnico di Torino, respectively.

VP, Marketing
Brendan Joyce

Brendan has been a devoted sports fan since seeing the thoroughbred his grandfather saved up for his whole life win its very first race.

Decades later, Brendan co-founded LeagueHeads, the #1 Google ranked Fantasy Sportsbook Game, after serving as marketing associate at TVG/Betfair. In addition, he operated as the Grassroots Chair for Generation Obama Los Angeles and subsequently as the CEO/Chief Creative of I Vote, a non-profit that produced and disseminated digital content to connect millennials to the power of their franchise.

Brendan earned a BFA in Screenwriting from USC's perennially top-ranked Film School. His grandfather's horse, Soaring Pleasure, never won another race.
