You've heard of digital money, you may have heard of digital identities, but have you heard of a digital country? Draper Startup House Global Founder, Vikram Bharati, is leading Draper's initiative to build a digital country with help from the blockchain.

Known as Draper Nation, the abstract concept feeds rather seamlessly into the Web3 narrative of decentralisation and community building, but how realistic is it?

Join us as we ask Bharati more about his vision for a world where physical and digital countries can coexist, and what citizens can expect from such a paradigm-shifting form of government.

Bharati is the Global Founder of Draper Startup House, a concept inspired by his two-year backpacking journey across more than 50 countries on six continents. His vision is to create a global network of economic and soulful landing pads for entrepreneurs, effectively forming a new type of global chamber of commerce in every major city worldwide. V

Bharati is also the Co-Founder of Draper Nation and the Founder of Draper Startup House Ventures, which focuses on investing in early-stage startups globally. Before establishing Draper Startup House in 2018, Bharati led venture capital investments at REAPRA, where he invested in early-stage ventures across Asia. His career began at J.P. Morgan, where he was an early member of several new ventures. Bharati grew up in Los Angeles and completed his undergraduate studies at the University of California, Riverside, followed by an MBA from the University of Southern California.
