About this event

Startup Grind Bangkok welcomes its first international guest all the way from Switzerland, serial blockchain entrepreneur Daniel Gasteiger, founder & CEO of Procivis, who will share with us his journey from international investment banker to blockchain entrepreneur and "civic tech" activist, as well as his thoughts on digital identity, e-government as a service, and the European startup landscape.

Before becoming one of Switzerland’s most prolific blockchain entrepreneurs, Daniel has worked in financial services for more than 20 years. Fascinated with the future potential of blockchain technology, Daniel decided to leave the banking world in 2015 to co-found “nexussquared”, a blockchain business advisory platform based in Zurich. With nexussquared, he has been working towards enhancing the attractiveness of Zurich and Switzerland for international blockchain startups and, in parallel, initiated blockchain meet-up groups across Europe, including Zurich, Vaduz, Budapest, Prague, Warsaw and Tallinn.

In 2016, Daniel founded his second venture, Procivis AG, a company that develops “e-government as a service” solutions backed by blockchain technology. Procivis’s first client is the Swiss canton of Schaffhausen, who is using the digital identity platform “eID+” to deliver e-government services to its citizens as a pilot. Procivis, as an extension of eID+, is working on a fully self-sovereign, integrated electronic identity and personal data management platform called “VALID”.

VALID is realizing a solution where users have their self-sovereign digital ID for a secure, seamless online experience with state-of-the-art encryption for sensitive data and a personal data marketplace to optionally monetize their own anonymized data without an intermediary.

Daniel Gasteiger is a member of the board of directors of the Global Blockchain Business Council, a member of Switzerland’s national blockchain taskforce under the leadership of the Minister of Finance and the Minister of Commerce, advises the canton of Zurich on the blockchain research and innovation hub “Trust Square”.

Jason is admitted as solicitor of the Supreme Court of New South Wales. He is also the Chief Investment Officer of Silver Cord Advisory, a specialist venture capital firm that invests professional services in disruptive technology start-ups throughout SE Asia.
