Stan Stalnaker is the Founding Director of Hub Culture and the Ven digital currency. Hub Culture is a global collaboration network founded in 2002 aimed toward building a brighter future. The community is driven by a blend of online tools for knowledge sharing with offline pavilions for meeting and connecting.  Hub Culture is powered by a digital currency called Ven, which is the first of its kind to be priced from a basket of currencies, commodities and carbon futures, making it green, grounded and stable. Ven is growing as a new tool for individuals, companies and institutions worldwide.  Since 2007, over 500 million units of Ven have exchanged hands. Stalnaker is also a commentator on the social impact of globalization, P2P finance and emerging digital economies.
