Marc Strigel joins soonami.io as a Group Chief Operating Officer
We are excited to welcome Marc Strigel as our Group Chief Operating Officer (COO). Marc has held COO roles with the music platform SoundCloud and the African online travel market leader Travelstart. Previously he has held executive roles at PayPal DACH and Germany’s largest radio group RTL Radio Deutschland. As COO, Marc will oversee soonami.io’s operations including the Finance function as acting CFO. He will be responsible for building out the structure of our accelerator model to enable web3 founders to bring their ventures successfully to the seed funding stage.
Marc has been involved in blockchain projects since 2017. He has launched an NFT project for global techno DJs to enable them to engage with their fans and monetize their creations in innovative ways. Marc is also a web3 Senior Advisor for hy, a digital advisory firm that focuses on digital transformation for corporates in the DACH region.
On top, Marc is a collector of premium NFTs. He minted various early artblocks.io drops (e.g. Chromie Squiggle, Fidenza, …), holds a BAYC, and a few NFT archeology items such as Pixelmap or Etheria World.
Marc Strigel: „From day one there was a connection between soonami.io and me as I have a deep interest in supporting high-growth technology companies to live their purpose and create organizational excellence. In my career, I have seen and supported many companies to grow into hundreds of employees at an international scale. Now I can help ventures very early on to set course on the right path here.’
We are looking forward to Marc‘s guidance in growing our venture and expanding it into the realm of the virtual world. The next step is now to build out our accelerator model, now that we have incubated a handful of technology and business process infrastructure ventures, such as Audit One (smart contract auditing), Foundance (early-stage bootstrapping platform), and zkFaith (zero-knowledge proof-based identification protocol).
Welcome to the team, Marc!
soonami.io is a Venture Launchpad focussing on building and supporting 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.io was founded by Christian Sauer and Jens Hewald and recently added Duncan Ross, former CTO of Sony Entertainment and FC Chelsea, as its Group CTO. Christian Sauer sold his start-up Webtrekk in 2018 and Jens was CTO of zanox, which was sold in 2008 to Axel Springer. The experienced entrepreneurs started soonami to support younger founders on their way to a more decentralized world.
