Thomas is the Founder of DELODI - The infrastructure For The Heliogenic Civilisation. He has taken the challenge to answer our 20 Truth Questions, For us to get some insight, And learn the Truth about the people behind the venture.
My TRUTH Story:
1. INTRODUCE YOURSELF IN THE THIRD PERSON TO A CROWD OF 10,000+ PEOPLE? Thomas was born in the US and grew up in Europe in an environment dominated by natural sciences. But instead of pursuing a scientific career he directed his focus onto the internet leading to a series of successful and unsuccessful projects and ventures ranging from collaboration platforms to mobile couponing systems, least cost routing services and ecommerce platforms. This led to a passion of exploring the social and technological edges of the technium. During this journey he has gathered extensive experience as a founder, CEO and CTO of businesses between one and fifty million EUR revenue and employs this for building new impact oriented organisations. Based on the foundation of DELODI, an ethical software boutique, he builds MOTHERLAND, IRM, GITA and MIRACLE towards a heliogenic civilisation.
