Zurich, London to India: Twenty Thirty (2030) Wants To Decentralize Power Of The Corporate World
2030 is a new company similar to an accelerator and a radical movement headed by Harvard and Stanford alumnus David Siegel, the world's first web designer. David is also a world renowned business blockchain expert, investor, prolific author, and startup coach working mostly out of Silicon Valley and Zurich. 2030 is actually more than a company or a movement. It also wants to release its own currency too.

In all honesty it’s difficult to categorize what 2030 is. We have never seen anything like it before. It has the makings of an accelerator in that it will help entrepreneurs find funding and mentors. But it isn’t interested in creating startups because they want all entrepreneurs to succeed, whereas building startups means some will fail.
Their ideas seem slightly whacky and futuristic too. For example, their site says, “We plan to go public within 18 months of our initial funding round. We plan to use our 2030 coin to pay people initially. While the coin won't be liquid during this period, when we have our initial coin offering (ICO) it will be worth a lot. We'll be using a Slicing Pie method of allocating equity and acquiring startups. As you work for Twenty Thirty, you'll be paid in our coin.”
So what is Twenty Thirty (2030)?
Twenty Thirty is a brand new movement and company hoping to decentralize the global banking and global trade system. They will create a global network of innovation centers to encourage fintech startups and any tech startup really, to reimagine and reinvent the way people work using decentralized technology.
Twenty Thirty wants to decentralize the power of the world because only a very few privileged people have access to the right resources.
“Ten banks manage more than 60 per cent of the world's financial assets.
Ten telecoms run more than 60 per cent of the world's phone calls.
Ten insurers hold over 60 per cent of the world's insurance and control most health-care decisions.
Ten retailers sell 40 per cent of the world's clothing.
Six media giants control over 90 per cent of the world's media assets.
Banks? Where we're going, we don't need banks. Help get 5 billion people unbanked and into the decentralized future. Let's give those in developing countries access to world-class services, education, and markets.”
Its India division will be headed by Yogesh Gaikwad, an entrepreneur who started India's first growth hacking company. He is also into building digital and tech startups that come with new unique ideas all the way from India to Singapore, UK, Switzerland and the US.
According to Yogesh, they hope to build a diverse portfolio of experiments, projects, and business units that empower people, organizations of all stripes, and society at large.
Furthermore their manifesto says, “We want to build the infrastructure, tools, apps, and smart contracts that one billion people will use in the year 2030…We want to help millions of people understand and use these tools, to make them mainstream.”
