Hear it from the experts
  • Digital identity: Moving to a decentralized future: "Few industries are more impacted by identity than financial services and banking. Identity affects the entire customer journey, starting from KYC and onboarding and continuing through account login, verification for large transactions, sanctions screening, anti-money laundering (AML) monitoring, loan screening, and vouching for a client’s creditworthiness." —Vinod Baya, Director & Head of Emerging Technology, Innovation Network & Emerging Technology, Citi Ventures
  • Fidelity, provenance, and trust: "The fidelity provided by the identity metasystem, combined with the credential provenance provided by the context-specific identity system operating on top of it, provides the basis for trusting the information that the holder has conveyed through credential exchange." —Dr. Phil Windley, Chair of the Board of Trustees, Sovrin Foundation
  • Interview in Korea with Blockstack’s Production Partner: "We use a blockchain to specifically anchor identity and establish global state and then we allow the computation and business logic largely to occur at the edges. Another way of saying this is we push complexity to the edges." —Xan Ditkoff, Production Partner, Blockstack
  • OWI State of Identity Podcast: Ubisecure and the Evolution of CIAMWebinar: "Ubisecure CEO Simon Wood drops in to discuss the ever-evolving customer identity and access management landscape, the convergence of customer and employee digital identities, and why identity remains at the heart of the customer experience across industries." —OWI State of Identity Podcast
A call for mentors and sponsors
There are multiple opportunities to participate in the SSI Incubator including:
  • Volunteer as a business/technical mentor to guide a SSI-based startup through its early development stages. The 12-week incubator is designed to get the incubator participants ready to present for the SSI Demo Day—the culminating event where they will showcase their SSI solution to a room full of investors. The SSI Incubator is looking for mentors who will share their expertise with the world's most-promising emerging early-stage SSI companies.
  • Become an SSI Incubator sponsor. The SSI Incubator is hosting a number of digital identity events in San Francisco this Fall and Winter including a SSI Demo Day in December. By becoming a sponsor of the SSI Incubator, you will be recognized as an advocate for SSI adoption and innovation among industry leaders.
Please contact to volunteer as a SSI Incubator mentor or sponsor.
