Tim Campbell MBE Has Joined the Board of Humaniq the new blockchain financial infrastructure connecting underserved markets around the world to the global economy. Campbell has been an evangelist in the fields of social enterprise and transformational impact for over a decade. He believes the private sector can have a positive impact on society, and his former roles include being an Ambassador to the London Mayor and a member of the Government’s Entrepreneurs Forum, in addition to the Cabinet Office’s SME Panel.
Campbell’s designation to Humaniq’s advisory board will see him work next to the board of directors including Alex Fork, Dinis Guarda and Dmitry Kaminskiy. Humaniq is a movement of tech for good and offering a simple and secure mobile banking app for the unbanked. Campbell on his designation said, “Humaniq has the capacity to produce thousands of entrepreneurs in addition to numerous customers of tomorrow who are unbanked at the time of speaking. I have always insisted that business has the power to bring about social change and Humaniq’s model of bringing financial instruments and education to the over two billion unbanked people around the world is the manifestation.”
Campbell will be at the forefront of discovering new regions where Humaniq can make a good social impact with a specific focus on Africa. The rationale for this focus comes after Campbell’s recent involvement as an invited guest speaker at the opening Enterprise Africa conference held in Accra, Ghana arranged by the British Council. Throughout the duration of the journey Campbell was formally made known to a great number of inspiring companies and their founders as well as getting a glimpse of some of the underprivileged enclaves of Ghana. Observing how these two complete-opposites existed at the same time in the same place in addition to the good work of the British Council giving guidance and assistance, Campbell was lead to explore how he could make a good impact in Ghana upon his arrival to the UK.
Reaching out to his connections retelling stories of his new journey he was introduced to Humaniq CEO Dinis Guarda who presented him the opportunity to assist a diverse range of communities that are inadequately provided with a service or facility and budding entrepreneurs who are unbanked.
“We welcome Tim and his captivating zeal and enthusiasm. Tim is a force of nature and he will be essential to assist us in developing the global DNA of Humaniq organisation. He will be alongside our executive team working close to set a mark in under developed and developing countries starting with Africa, with a special emphasis on Ghana. Also his knowledge in business and community building will be an asset for our dynamics”
Humaniq is a blockchain fintech startup aiming to tackle some of economy-excluded challenges. The organisation started its seed funding with crowd investing using the innovative approach of the crypto economy in the form of an ICO (Initial Coin Offering). Doing this Humaniq wants to use innovative ways to build its community and leverage the power of digital currencies for social impact. Humaniq got to its crowd sale with more than 10,000 participants in the pre-seed investment round buying its HMQ coin crypto-currency that can be done both with Bitcoin and Ether. So far the organisation has reached $4M in the last two weeks. The campaign finishes on April 27th.
