Welcome Wilfried Pimenta de Miranda to the IOTA Foundation

IF Team Apr 03, 2017

Wilfried Pimenta de Miranda is an entrepreneur, former management consultant and corporate strategy/M&A/business development professional. With a background from Cleantech and Oil & Gas, he’s been working internationally at the forefront of emerging technologies, helping incumbents and startups explore new business model innovation, expand internationally and get in position for the clean energy revolution. From onshore wind, offshore wind, solar PV, hydropower to transmission and smart grid, Wilfried has been collaborating with global champions from Europe such as EDF, Shell, Statkraft or Scatec. At Multiconsult, a leading international engineering consultancy from Norway, he played a key role in growing its renewables footprint, scaled its activity across industries and geographies and contributed to its successful IPO in May 2015. Wilfried now shapes strategic innovation initiatives and startup ventures that open new pathways to value creation for business and society.  

Wilfried graduated from INSEAD with a Global Executive MBA in 2013 spent in France, Singapore and Abu Dhabi. Back in 2001, he finalized an international double Msc engineering degree from Ecole Centrale de Lyon, France and NTNU, Norway.

The convergence of Distributed ledgers, IoT and AI offers an amazing opportunity to reinvent business and value creation growth as a force for good. Despite the promise and excitement around Blockchain protocols in that space, these unfortunately show insurmountable limitations inbuilt in their core design which require too much computing resource, impose transaction fees and thus prevent them from scaling in the IoT. The IOTA team came up with a truly revolutionary architecture which enables secure, real time micro-transaction and for the first time ever without any single transaction fee. This is a breakthrough foundational innovation which has the full potential to become the standard backbone of the Internet of Things and the machine to machine economy and transform all industries starting with connected mobility, decentralised energy, smart cities, and eHealth. I am thrilled to be joining the IOTA Foundation and its team and can’t wait to equip worldwide innovators with this cutting edge technology.
