Andrew Hamilton

Coupit.io

Andrew Hamilton is an entrepreneur, thought leader, investor and founder of Coupit.io. He became interested in the e-commerce industry more than 10 years ago, when he worked in Chicago as a stock and commodities broker on the Mercantile Exchange. Hamilton began investing in e-commerce ventures because of the high returns, and he began purchasing e-commerce websites, which served as a good vehicle for tax mitigation. He recognized the importance of providing a bitcoin payment option for international clients and reaped the rewards of early cryptocurrency ownership. As Hamilton’s interest in e-commerce matured, so did his passion to align himself with people who shared his interests and were creative. This led him to be a venture capitalist; he has now invested in a number of successful e-commerce start-ups. “My eye for talent led me to partner with some of the smartest people in the e-commerce space,” says Hamilton, “the same people who now make up the Coupit team.”
