Highly opinionated -- don't tell me you're not protecting your intellectual property by way of an idealistic open source dream


CEO / CTO of Alvin Valley in SoHo, NYC

Damion Hänkejh is one of only 8 worldwide to be granted access to IBM's cognitive supercomputer, Watson -- FANG is the first adaptive, educational toy designed to hold a conversation with kids, parents & teachers -- launching in 2015.

Damion invented Internet customer service before IBM coined "eCommerce" & founded InstantService, the first and largest carrier-class telecom platform for live customer service (acquired by Oracle in a $1 billion roll-up, now Oracle Live Help).

Damion serves alongside Microsoft Bing inventor, Lorenzo Thione, as founder of Ingk Labs -- resurrecting underleveraged, dormant IP from the largest corporate R&D labs and VC firms worldwide -- rapidly moving it from concept to company to form capitalized ventures that demonstrate disruption potential.

Hänkejh was honored as a Smithsonian Laureate for his work as CTO of Virtual OR (now Swedish Medical), a pioneer at the nexus of medicine & robotics, setting the stage for the first fully accredited virtual operating rooms worldwide.
