Raoul Milhado is a lifelong entrepreneur. At the age of 13, Raoul built his first website. At 19, Raoul started his first company – a digital marketing firm. Since exiting from his first venture at 23, Raoul has founded several additional companies. The most recent of them, Elitium, was founded in 2017. Since then, Raoul has been serving Elitium as its founder and CEO.
In the initial years, Elitium aimed to build blockchain investment solutions that would redefine people’s interaction with money from the ground up. The idea developed as a follow-up to another company Raoul has been serving as a managing partner since 2016. The company is called Boatsters Black, a luxury charter yacht platform. Raoul first thought of developing Elitium while developing a p2p crypto payment platform for Boatsters, an yacht charter company that accepts payments in 55 different cryptocurrencies including Bitcoin, Ethereum, and NEO.
Today, Elitium functions as an aggregate of wealth management products, each of which can be accessed through the Elitium App. Elitium also has a new-age investment platform known as ECAP or Elitium Capital. This Digital Share Platform allows users to invest in tokenized real-world assets. Elitium Capital is the only digital share platform that lets you invest in unique real estate, build a truly diversified portfolio, and become part-owner of luxury hotels, resorts and real estate properties through blockchain technology.
Raoul also contributes regularly as a thought leader through his articles on the crypto and blockchain industry.
In his career so far, Raoul has founded many more companies apart from Boatsters and Elitium. The first company that he founded was called his marketing business, Brandfirm. After that, he kept on setting up new companies regularly. The list includes Appromoters, Gamemarketeers, Twenty-four, and Think BIG lifestyle.
In terms of responsibilities handled and skills learned, Raoul led his online marketing company that served more than 100 clients. He acquired mobile application development skills that led to the foundation of Appromoters. He also ventured into advertising with a team of more than thirty people spread across offices from Amsterdam, Tel Aviv, to Los Angeles.
Raoul also set up Lengers Yachts Spain in collaboration with Nick Gelevert Lengers. Lengers Yachts is focused on selling superyachts including reputed Italian brands like Sanlorenzo. Raoul has also worked as a motivational speaker to empower individuals and organizations with the tools of knowledge, technology, and spirituality. Raoul’s entrepreneurship inspires many to follow in a similar path.
In building Elitium, Raoul aimed to capture the potential of the ever-growing crypto industry. To achieve this, Raoul keeps on introducing modern-day investment avenues that help clients explore a previously unimaginable independence, value, and growth.
The broader vision of Raoul that binds all his crypto-projects in one thread is to expand the periphery of the new digital economy. Raoul believes that a more inclusive digital economy would be helpful for people to live a life of 3 primary pillars: growth, value, and independence.
Raoul does not believe in developing Elitium as a company that would only serve a certain segment of wealthy clients. For Raoul, everyone should have access to luxury and comfort befitting their budget. As his mission, Raoul is also keen to apply the principles of Artificial Intelligence to human’s inherent qualities. A major step towards innovation in the crypto industry.
Raoul’s Views and Opinions
Raoul believes that some radical shifts in the world of finance are imminent. According to him, to make the most out of these shifts, DeFi and CeFi should function in tandem.
He also endorses the view that it’s the responsibility of the crypto entrepreneurs to educate people about the tenets of decentralized finance. He is also an advocate of decentralized technology in general, especially in the areas of internet and security. Raoul thinks that the practices of the new digital economy may sprout anywhere in the world. In one of his articles, Raoul emphatically says, “In short, we need a ‘Great Reset’ of capitalism.”
