About AJ

Hi! I’m Adrian Jonklaas.

Thanks for stopping by.

In 2015, I decided to change careers and countries. After working as a Director and Head of Consulting in a Real Estate Business Advisory practice in Dubai, I decided to become a tech entrepreneur in beautiful British Columbia. I co-founded Finhaven – a full-stack capital market infrastructure for the issuance, trading and recording of digital securities – which successfully raised a USD 5.13M Series A.

I am currently the Co-Founder and CEO of Dignii, an inclusive employee engagement platform. We create products that provides a holistic view of the employee’s experience. We safely and securely measure data using evidence-based research to get a real picture of employee engagement that help us identity problems and create real solutions that fit.

I also provide real estate feasibility, corporate finance, and blockchain product design professional services through my company JAI. I am working on a science fiction story called 2030 ET.

I am also a CFA charterholder and an angel investor.

Feel free to contact me through LinkedIn regarding business related opportunities or contact me about my blog and / or 2030 ET project.
