About us

Exec Team

TIGTech is an innovative civil society - business partnership. It is, in itself, an embodiment of our conviction that through shared values, a common purpose and respectful interactions we can better achieve successful multi-stakeholder collaboration, in emerging tech and beyond.

Our diverse backgrounds, complementary skills and commitment to the sound and appropriate governance of the technologies of the ‘4th Industrial Revolution’ come together in this new initiative to explore how to design tech governance which has a solid chance of earning societal and political trust.
