The dynamic nature of startups is linked to both high risks in investments as well as potentially important financial benefits. A key aspect to manage interactions among investors, experts, and startups, is the establishment of trust guarantees. This paper presents the formalization and implementation of a system enforcing trust in the startup assessment domain. To do so, an existing architecture has been extended, incorporating a multi-agent community and related interactions via private blockchain technology. The developed system enables a trust-based community, immutably storing, tracking, and monitoring the agents’ interactions and reputations.
