Max is an entrepreneur and co-founder of peaq, a Berlin based deep-tech startup developing decentralised infrastructure for the Internet of Things (IoT). peaq is one of Europe’s first and only end-to-end blockchain development companies, meaning they develop everything from their own novel Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT), through to the solutions running on top of it. peaq empowers their clients to own, govern and maintain the platforms they use – solving fragmentation, trust, scaling and interoperability issues while enabling devices and machines to autonomously monetise, exchange and trade data in real time. peaq’s clients include Fortune 100 companies such as NTT and leading German automotives. They’re supported by current and former executives at Cisco, Skype, VW, P&G, Standard Chartered, Mäurer & Wirtz, 4P Capital and Deloitte Digital.
Max is Maltese and grew up on the island. He moved to Berlin at 21 where he co-founded four ventures in the blockchain/Distributed Ledger Technology space, peaq being the culmination of those efforts. Max is also a Fellow at the Kairos Society, a network of Europe’s most ambitious young founders focused on making the world a better place. He’s been featured by the Financial Times and Die Zeit for his work as an immigrant tech founder in Germany. Now 24, Max is dedicated to leveraging technology to enable a more inclusive, transparent and equitable world.
