Daniel Karpantschof served on the White House' and US Department of State' Council of Experts for Entrepreneurship.

He is about to launch Copenhagen Industries, a 21st century arms manufacturer for special effects, film and tv.

He used to advise RML SpaceLab, an open source space exploration agency, and is the co-founder of Nexus Global Youth Summit.

Daniel has been involved in numerous startups (in telco, cleantech and entertainment) and guest lectures at the Danish School of Design, New York University, the Chaos Pilots, Copenhagen Business College, Pratt School of Design and was declared part of Denmark’s “New Creative Elite” by leading Scandinavian think-tank, Monday Morning (2014).

He served as Danish representative to UNESCO and the UN World Summits on Information Society, on private and public boards, including the Copenhagen Institute for Futures Studies, Danish Evaluation Institute, the urban development project Copenhagen – The Thinking City as well as the National Council on European Policies and the National Board of Education.

In 2009 he achieved his childhood dream and moved to the US, and in New York he joined The Economist Group’ Ideas Lab, an internal media innovation team, rethinking The Economist’ audience, community and global readership -- which he eventually left to run the global Sandbox community as Head of Global Affairs.

For the time being he lives between New York and Copenhagen, as he builds Copenhagen Industries.
