We are excited to welcome Duncan Ross, former CTO of Chelsea FC into our fast-growing team at soonami.io as a group CTO. Duncan has led Chelsea’s innovative Digital Ventures and is currently Non-Executive Director at Nintendo. His extensive experience working with giants like Sony, Shell, Samsung, Lego, and others will bring unparalleled value and technical leadership to the soonami.io venture.
Since 2014, Duncan was in charge of several successful blockchain ventures and with his experience in gaming and sports he will focus on technical and strategic leadership for soonami.io overall as well as heading our Metaverse projects.
soonami.io is a Venture Launchpad focussing on building new ventures in the Web3 space. Web3 stands for the next digital shift in the internet industry to a decentralized offering, where the blockchain enables new types of governance, contribution, and shares. „Soonami team and I share the same beliefs and core values. We believe blockchain technologies will enable a democratized and borderless digital landscape while benefiting and protecting individual's freedoms.“
soonami.io was founded by Christian Sauer, Jens Hewald, and Mehrdad Piroozram members of the first generation of digital founders. Christian Sauer sold his start-up Webtrekk in 2018, Jens was CTO of zanox, which was sold in 2008 to Axel Springer, and Mehrdad IPOed his company Pironet already in 2000.
The experienced entrepreneurs started soonami to support younger founders on their way to a more decentralized world. „We are very happy to have found such an experienced and knowledgeable CTO for soonami as younger founders can learn from him to jumpstart their endeavors.“ says the team.
We are looking forward to Duncan’s guidance in growing our venture and expanding it into the realm of the virtual world with his metaverse project.
Welcome to the team and good luck!
