And the final award of the evening is bestowed upon a transformative venture, HeirStory, and its founder, a man whom I have the privilege of calling both a dear friend and a brother at heart, Dustin Plantholt.
HeirStory, under Dustin’s visionary stewardship, elegantly combines AI, blockchain technology, and philanthropy. Its essence lies in preserving personal narratives, bolstering data security, and enabling positive impact through charitable giving. By harnessing these advanced technologies, HeirStory provides a platform to immortalize our stories, to bequeath a digital legacy for future generations, all while making a meaningful difference to causes that matter.
Dustin, widely recognized as the “Count of Monte Crypto,” is the embodiment of relentless innovation and commitment. His journey, adorned with accolades including Entrepreneur.com’s Metaverse Advisor of the Year and features on Forbes Monaco’s 40 under 40 list, attests to his unfaltering commitment to enhancing the world.
As a dear friend, I’ve had the unique privilege of witnessing Dustin’s unwavering determination, his visionary thinking, and his steadfast commitment to philanthropy. His work with HeirStory is an affirmation of his belief in the transformative power of storytelling and the potential of technology to effect meaningful change.
With immense honor and personal pride, I am thrilled to present HeirStory with the 2023 Social Impact Startup of the Year Award. Dustin, as you accept this award on behalf of HeirStory, we applaud your inspirational innovation, your visionary perspective, and your commitment to leveraging technology for the greater good.
Yet, our recognition does not stop there. As the founder of the Institute for Advanced Studies and Cooperation, I am equally thrilled to announce that we are presenting you with a grant from our foundation in the amount of $2,500 USD. We are confident that this contribution will further support your extraordinary efforts with HeirStory.
May your journey with HeirStory continue to inspire, revolutionize, and make a lasting, positive impact. Your work, Dustin, is a testament to your resilience and ambition. I am confident that HeirStory will continue to push boundaries and set new standards in the years to come.
Congratulations, my dear friend, my brother Sir. Dustin Plantholt.
