Expect: a lot of questions, to be inspired and

for things to get done!



Hi, I'm Maryanne! I'm a blockchain technologist at the intersection of finance and digital transformation. I focus on modernization and innovation in capital markets. I am the Chairman, CEO and Founder of 9th Gear Technologies, the only B2B marketplace that powers real-time settlement in financial markets.

Through my speaking engagements, I share insights on the impact of distributed ledger technology (DLT), which is often referred to as blockchain, on institutional finance. I believe settlement risk is unnecessary.

As a sought-after global speaker, I am often invited to keynote events at top industry trade groups and engage with a worldwide audience at conferences. Some of my recent appearances have included Horasis, TradeTech FX, Global Blockchain Conference, Money 20/20, and MWC Barcelona.

NEW PROJECT:  I have recently started a new venture called Apéritif Rocks bringing you CRAFT Cocktails; Curated. As a one-stop-shop for recipes, inspiration and recommendations, elevating your mixology is my mission. Starting with the basics and only 3 ingredient, perfection does not need to be complicated. Join me on this journey by visiting: Aperitif.Rocks.

Maryanne Morrow offered an honest snapshot into the life of a Silicon Valley tech leader. From waking up at 4 AM to her to-the-point style of speaking, she was a great guest speaker. It made me think about how many different kinds of niche opportunities there are in the Fintech world and how hopping on this trend now while it’s growing could lead to a very lucrative future business.
