Joseph Lizyness: Tech Startups, the Metaverse, and the Future of Technology


We are entering a golden age of technology. Over the course of the next decade, tech visionary Joseph Lizyness predicts that we will see incredible advancements within artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning, and that decentralized finance (DeFi) will change the way of finance. A renowned tech startup investor, Joseph has long been an avid follower of technology and finance. He tracks developments in tech and finance with a sharp eye for opportunity and innovation. He watched as technology has undergone massive changes in recent years, and he expects this trend to grow in intensity and impact. He believes that advancements in artificial intelligence, machine learning, and decentralized finance will reshape a wide variety of industries.

Success at Every Turn

Joseph has found success in a wide variety of roles: as a US Army veteran, an advisor, an entrepreneur, an angel investor, an author, and a co-founder of Eagle Atlas, a trusted consulting firm. His journey began when he joined the Army at 18, going on to serve 4 years as an intelligence analyst. Though he initially struggled to transition to the civilian world after his time in the Army, he went on to work as a contractor at FBI Quantico, which he felt was “a perfect fit” for him.

Thinking back on the journey so far, Joseph notes that “It’s been kind of a rollercoaster.” In his capacity as a startup advisor, Joseph offers guidance to tech startups on raising equity crowdfunding through sites like wefunder.com, republic.co, and startengine.com. As an angel investor, he supported prominent tech startups such as Snowball, a company that is currently changing the world with decentralized finance.

Business-Building Expertise

His successes as an investor and advisor have brought him some renown, and with his extensive experience and credentials, it’s obvious that he’s worked hard to earn it. In college, he earned an MBA with a concentration in Management, as well as a BS in Business Administration. He’s been a consultant to the US Government in various roles, particularly in Project Management, and he sits on several advisory boards. 

Joseph is now the proud co-founder of Eagle Atlas, a consulting firm that specializes in advising clients on setting productive goals, making big career changes, and running companies of various sizes and stages of development. Their goal is to help individuals and companies find the right direction and maximize their potential. Eagle Atlas offers an online Blueprint to Success tool to help individuals and companies of all sizes obtain their goals. The blueprint is available for all to use on their website.

New Investors to Support the Industry

Joseph released his first book, Angel Investing with $100, in February of this year. In it, he teaches readers how to accumulate generational wealth through investments in tech startups. He hopes that the book will show ordinary people that entering the realm of investment is more accessible than most people think, and it can benefit more than just the rich. With this, Joseph hopes not only to inspire a new generation of investors, but to spark a new influx of cash for the next wave of tech companies; in this way, he can make a much wider impact on the growth of the tech industry as a whole.

Taking Tech to Greater Heights

Joseph can’t wait to see how some of these great technological strides will change our world and the way we interact with it. “This is a time to remember,” he says. “We’re witnessing a new golden age of technology.” He’s excited to see how blockchain, crypto, and DeFi will transform the economy, and how advancements in virtual reality (VR) will shape the digital landscape, with Facebook’s new Metaverse poised to take social media to new heights. “With all of these new advancements offering us more connection, more control, and more convenience than ever before, we should be in for a very exciting future.”
