Faris worked in the corporate cubicle world for many years and after watching a life changing TED Talk, he struggled to find a role that fit his skill set and interests. So he created his own.
As Instigation Protocol’s Chief Instigator, Faris collaborates with cities and forward thinking blockchain startups to transform flawed systems, achieve SDG’s, and prioritize human value over shareholder value.
Faris thinks the ability to create a future where humans play a vital role is pretty amazing and hopes that feeling is contagious. Otherwise corporate interests will consolidate our worth and dictate our tomorrow.
