Dropp.TV, a blockchain app that allows shopping via media and gives viewers the power to buy any product on any screen instantly, has named Andrew McCartney as its first CEO.

 In 2013, Microsoft tapped McCartney as CEO in Residence of Microsoft Ventures in the UK. In this role, he helped startups around the world build successful companies using the expertise of Microsoft and its partners. McCartney has spent his career finding, leading and advising startups, including Jampot Technologies, AppyParking, TaDaweb, Ski.it, and Tech City UK.  Most recently, McCartney founded Whitespace Ventures Ltd., a venture capital fund based in London.

“From coding in my dorm room to leading global tech ventures, I’ve always been driven by pushing the boundaries and making the impossible possible,” said McCartney. “At my core I’m a tech nerd, and anyone that knows me will tell you that I only get involved in projects that I truly believe are changing how people interact with tech. That’s what Dropp.TV is doing.”
