Dan Doney is the CEO of Securrency, Inc, a RegTech/FinTech company that democratizes access to capital markets. Securrency’s platform uses distributed ledgers and a patented compliance model for “single click” token issuance, trade, and transfer. These tokens represent a new kind of financial instrument: liquid, dividend-yielding, digital currencies with the stability of bonds, transferability of Bitcoin, and investment characteristics of securities. The platform’s extensive compliance framework targets global distribution of securities providing innovators and value creators greater access to capital while opening new high yield opportunities for investors.
In 2015, Dan completed a tour at the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) where he served as the intelligence community’s first Chief Innovation Officer. He developed an aggressive Innovation Strategy, the first of its kind in government, designed to enhance execution agility and efficiency agency-wide. His initiatives yielded significant savings (3 to 1 return on investment), channeled workforce ideas into mission impact, and streamlined the fielding of emerging technology.  Dan received the 2014 Federal Fierce 15 award for his work as a change agent in government. Dan remains involved in government IT by consulting with the FBI Office of Private Sector to help protect private sector entities from Cyber, Criminal, Counter Intelligence and Terrorism threats.
Dan started his career as a nuclear submarine officer in the U.S. Navy. After his service in the military, he worked in industry in software development and business process automation. Dan served the bulk of his career in advanced research for the intelligence community – most recently at the Intelligence Advanced Research Projects Activity (IARPA) as technical lead on the Novel Intelligence from Massive Data (NIMD) and Collaboration and Analyst System Effectiveness (CASE) research programs. These programs pushed the frontier of artificial intelligence and machine learning research enabling human machine systems to process vast heterogeneous data to maintain decision advantage in support the intelligence community mission.
Dan has been an innovator in a wide variety of fields (process automation, enterprise architecture and software development, financial modeling, organization theory, robotics, and signal processing) drawing on his background in social systems, control theory, software engineering, and artificial intelligence.
