We are people who have dedicated our entire careers to this massive undertaking—weaving partnerships together with knowledge and experience about how to guide the evolution of economic systems away from extractive paradigms that significantly reduce the resilience of human communities and ecosystems and towards the regenerative paradigms that integrate them to restore a healthy functioning.
Franz is a universal citizen with roots in Austria and Guatemala. These contrasting yet complementary perspectives allowed him to question existing cultural paradigms built on scarcity from an early age.
Dedication to the fields of innovation and global development has enabled Franz to gather experience working with international organizations, governments, private sector, NGOs, and academic institutions. This multidisciplinary approach allowed him to recognize pervading patterns and embrace a more holistic approach to development that effectively provides value towards the whole of the system.
In recognition of the need to unite fragmented efforts towards a co-creative development process that effectively addresses the challenges of today, inspires Franz to create the tools, processes, and on the ground collaborations that support the development of regenerative bio-regional economies. He is a core member of Hypha DAO, pioneering the emergence of SEEDS, a financial ecosystem and digital currency designed to consolidate and empower the regeneration movement.
An avid explorer, he has visited 77 countries, where he has formed a solid network of collaborators. In his free time, you will encounter Franz finding inspiration in nature, climbing volcanoes, and exchanging with leaders across multiple disciplines.

“Most importantly we have learned that from here on it is success for all or none, for it is experimentally proven by physics that "unity is plural and at minimum two" - the complementary but not mirror-imaged proton and neutron. You and I are inherently different and complementary. Together we average as zero - that is, as eternity.”
