Solo Ceesay, is the Chief Executive Officer and Co-Founder of Calaxy, an open social marketplace for creators, by creators, that aims to reimagine the entertainment industry and the fundamental ways with which we all interact digitally. He secured a prestigious American education at the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania, had an impressive championship college football career, and worked in competitive positions in trading and banking, and was the first of his family to foray into Wall Street. Solo applied his Wall Street experience as a securitization expert when he served as an advisor for Spencer Dinwiddie when he became the first NBA player to tokenize and securitize his contract. He endeavored to create solutions for these demonstrated needs and trends by combining cryptocurrency, blockchain technology and social media into secure, monetizable data and revenue streams. He believes that creators from all walks of life need a platform to showcase and be paid for their art, while interacting with fans and followers in new ways. Betting on his vision, network, relentless work ethic and earned experience, Solo left Wall Street to develop his dream for a secure ecosystem built for creators by creators that revolutionizes content creation/sharing and the fan experience of each: Calaxy.
