CO-FOUNDER & COO
Ashleigh’s passion for business operations and development lies in her desire to understand the motivations of everything, from the company ethos to the psychology of the target audience. Working with long established companies and aiding start-ups proved that many companies have the resources at hand but lacked the knowledge and direction to implement measurable changes. Ashleigh believes in an ‘inside-out’, organic approach to development. Her most proud business achievement lay in reforming a family-oriented building contractor with cash flow issues and dwindling contracts. Identifying their core strengths as well as issues requiring immediate attention allowed her to implement changes that re-launched it as a market leader. Winning national contracts for retailers such as Boots PLC and Superdrug and growing the team and turnover in the process.
Being a late adopter of ‘crypto-fever’ has not hampered Ashleigh’s development in the field; her traditional approach to business paired with her fascination for blockchain-based solutions in the modern world is helping to shape the future of ArtPro.

The project has 3 major constituents: experienced team, skillful advisors and partners. Plus, there are lots of social platforms, where investors could get information about the platform ( Reddit, Medium, Facebook, Telegram,Instagram, Linkedin ).
Risks and disadvantages
