Further, internet commerce is disproportionately in the hands of bigger enterprises, often marginalizing the small. I am privileged to join Bubblr in this capacity to share guidance and support its mission to restore the internet to its intended purpose of providing a trusted, level playing field where people and enterprises can confidently, safely and securely engage, collaborate, share information, and conduct commerce.”
