Welcome Per Lind to the IOTA Foundation
Per, born in Denmark and currently residing in Thailand, is the epitome of a connector with a digital rolodex very few can match. Not only is he extraordinary at bringing the right people together, he is also an accomplished business developer with a diverse background from a myriad of sectors. He started his career by obtaining a degree in economics before jumping right into becoming a pioneer in the renewable energy industry before working as head of marketing at Bang & Olufsen. From there he achieved success at several companies in different sectors including IBM and ResponseTek in the US and Europe. Throughout his career he has worked directly and indirectly with several of the largest brands in the world including Ford, Aston Martin, Mercedes Benz, SonyEricsson, Virgin Media and more. He was headhunted to work in Thailand 12 years ago and decided to stay ever since. At the moment he leads his own business development company Farmor Cloud Factory which works with a wide range of western companies like HYPR, Falcon.io and iMotions aiming to establish themselves in the Asian region. He is also a mentor at StartupBootcamp and work closely with regulators to boost the ecosystem surrounding the innovative technologies he finds interesting.
Per recognized IOTA’s unique potential after having witnessed the limitations of regular blockchain architecture in his professional life for the past years. He has already been of great value for the IOTA project by opening a lot of exciting doors to world leading institutions that are interested in utilizing IOTA in value streams and new business models.
