Founder and CEO, Tokenize
Melanie Shapiro, PhD is co-founder and CEO of Tokenize Inc. The Tokenize team has been in stealth-mode for 2 years working to consumerize cryptography and will be launching in June 2017. Their thesis is that cryptography will be central to how identity is proven in the future, but that it is missing an experience layer that eliminates friction for a mainstream market. Melanie also co-founded Digsby, a messaging platform for managing digital identities, which was acquired in 2011. She has a PhD in Consumer Behavior, and studied technology-adoption behavior at Microsoft.
