Sam O. Yilmaz

General Partner and COO Bloccelerate


Sam O. Yilmaz has actively built, refined, and invested in blockchain-powered DApps and companies, making possible the previously impossible.

Having been an entrepreneur, director of an angel network, and a fund partner, he is keen on creating value through well-run businesses and well-designed dApps. His strengths lie in detail orientation, team building, and clear communication. He prioritizes empowering, refining the thinking of and supporting the entrepreneurs. For the companies he invests in, he sharpens the narrative of the services, perfects the user experience, maintains compliance of the product, and identifies growth, pivot, or exit areas for the core offerings.

Now, the General Partner of Bloccelerate, he is driven to bring the next best line up of projects to life targeting mass-retail, government and enterprise adoption. He maintains that the next decade of blockchain investment will be different from that of the last; more value will accrue in the application layer above the protocols. It's time we see large organizations purchase services they can't live without from blockchain companies and dApps. Living and breathing to realize this future.

In his previous venture funds, he is focused on early-stage incubation, scouting and crafting the terms of 10x opportunities. He maintained thought leadership through speaking at accelerators, incubators, and conferences. He managed the legal and accounting teams.
