Jan Malkus

Jan Malkus is a successful serial entrepreneur born in Germany. After his studies in information technology, he started his first international venture in the field of telecommunications in 1999, which he built up profitably in a short time, achieving a turnover of over one hundred million (DM). Barely two years later (December 2000) he sold the company to a listed enterprise (Elios AG) in Italy. After three years of working for Elios AG and serving as a member of the supervisory board in Italy, he decided to look for new challenges. He invested part of his private wealth into research and development of new technologies in the field of renewable energies. Overall, Jan Malkus has been involved for more than ten years in various disruptive technologies that are expected to have a greater impact on the production of green energy at competitive prices.

“Today, for the first time in human history, we have the technology to turn back the clock on world pollution. Let us use it to make our world a better place for the next generations.”

In addition to the renewable energy sector, Jan Malkus is also an investor in various technologies for the FinTech sector. His current FinTech investments are a platform for trading various financial products (www.bdswiss.com), a digital platform for brokering banking services (www.swissmoney.com), a regulated crypto exchange (www.bitnuk.com) and a modern KYC (know your client) company (www.globalpass.ch). These companies provide solutions based on new blockchain-technologies for the major challenges of the fintech industries.
