Businessman Alexander Renz joined IOTA Foundation

Welcome Alexander Renz to IOTA

Alexander Renz started out his career by obtaining degrees in European Business Studies and International Marketing from the prestigeus Brunel Business School in the mid 1990s.

He initiated SAP’s activities around the Internet of Things (IoT) in 2001 with the sponsorship of the MIT Auto-ID Center following a meeting with the CIO of Procter & Gamble, Steve David. To realize his vision of “Real-World Aware, Adaptive Supply Networks”, Alex also spearheaded the work around distributed, agent-based systems with complexity scientist Stuart Kauffman from the Santa Fe Institute. When Alex first learned about distributed ledger technologies and IOTA more than 15 years later, he immediately understood it as the backbone of IoT and the emerging Machine-to-Machine economy.

Throughout Alex’s corporate career he explored emerging technologies and drove innovation that lead to a range of new products. His international career with companies such as Bosch, SAP and Microsoft brought him to London, Bangkok, Hong Kong, Walldorf, Copenhagen and Seattle, where he currently resides. His passion for technology-driven business model innovation lead him and his brother Joe to co-found New Mobility Consulting to help startups, corporates and investors take advantage of the digital transformation of mobility and transportation. Today, the brothers have developed an amazing global innovation ecosystem that includes hundreds of startups, incubators / accelerators, investors and corporate innovation teams.

I strongly believe that IO...
