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 blockchain powered investment banking platform and global alliance of exchanges – which successfully raised a USD 5.13M Series A.

I am currently providing Corporate Finance and Mechanism Design advisory services through my company JAI and am working on a science fiction story called 2030 ET.

I am also a CFA charterholder and am interested in entrepreneurship and angel investing. I am a member of the Vancouver Angel Technology Network (VANTEC), the National Angel Capital Organization, and the Angel Capital Association. I have made modest investments in start-ups through e-Fund and Timia Capital.

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

My Interests

My blog is mainly going to be about my interests, which are: science, technology, futurism, sociology, religion, politics, economics, philosophy, entrepreneurship, and real estate.  Occasionally, I will blog about fun stuff like: writing, blogging, hiking, food, movies, and video games 🙂

The intention is to blog about once a week to start with. Let’s see how it goes!
