Susanne Tarkowski Tempelhof

BITNATION
Founder
Rio de Janeiro
Susanne is an international entrepreneur, tech investor, and writer. She has worked in Sweden, France, Brazil, China, Afghanistan, Pakistan, United Arab Emirates, United States, Libya, Egypt, Ghana and Indonesia in the past. In 2008 she started Wise Strategic Communication (WSC) in Afghanistan, which conducts research on local perceptions on governance. She sold WSC in February 2011 to a US firm. In the wake of the Arab Spring, in 2011 she went to Egypt and Libya to support local grassroots movements throughout the civil war. Progressively throughout the years of war, she came to understand how unsustainable the one-fits-all nation state model was, and started exploring more ethical alternatives.
In July 2014 she started BITNATION 'Governance 2.0': Borderless > Decentralised > Voluntary. Bitnation is a blockchain powered Governance 2.0 Operating System -- the world's first functioning Virtual Nation, offering all services traditional governments provides, from law, to dispute resolution, insurance, security, and diplomacy. BITNATION has several thousands of Citizens and Ambassadors in over 50 countries around the world, and provide services from blockchain based IDs, to Public Notary, Education and p2p Insurance.
She’s the author of the forthcoming book “The Googlement - The DIY Guide To Starting Your Own Nation (And Changing The World)” - Nortia Press, and a regular writer, and speaker at conferences, having appeared in New York Times, BBC, WIRED, VICE, Bloomberg, TechCrunch, Wall Street Journal, Foreign Policy, Huffington Post, Swedish, Russian, German, Venezuelan and French Television, TEDx, Google Solve For X, University of Cambridge, London School of Economics, and many other venues.
