We live in a time of unprecedented digital transformation, disruptive forces are changing our world and fast! Blockchain and other frontier technologies are giving us tools to collaborate on a global scale, in a way never previously possible – we can now reach out across sectors and geographies and build huge innovation communities to solve big and small problems. We can now embrace not just cross-industry collaboration, but pan-global collaboration.
For the first time in human history, we have the technological tools that will enable us to connect the bottom billion unbanked to the global economy, to provide digital identity to stateless people...to direct benefits to women and girls. In this Decade Of Women, we must harness these digital tools and our collective ambition to create a connected and distributed token economy to transform lives of women and girls across the globe and achieve Quantum Impact. - Dr. Jane Thomason (Decade of Women, Quantum Impact Champion, 2018)

Jane Thomason is the founder of Blockchain Quantum Impact and a global thought leader in blockchain and frontier technologies for social impact.
She leverages her deep networks in international development, public health, global partnerships, research, philanthropy and entrepreneurship to educate, inspire and connect people globally on how blockchain and frontier technologies can transform emerging economies and improve the lives of the poor and disadvantaged.
Jane’s mission is to increase the flow of global capital to transformative technologies for emerging economies, to make sure this capital is used in ways that will generate the most impact, and to ensure that it reaches the entrepreneurs and innovators who need it in the most efficient way possible. To do this, she works at a global level, connecting networks, building the eco-system to forge large collaborations and partnerships to achieve the promise of these rapidly emerging technologies.
Jane has more than 30 years working in emerging economies, with Governments, ADB, World Bank, WHO, USAID and DFAT. She successfully started her own international development management consultancy, which merged with Abt Associates in 2013. She remained for 4 years to scale that business and exited in March 2018 to pursue her mission to accelerate the uptake of frontier technologies to address global challenges. She is one of a new breed of Global Nomads (Glomads).
