Ben Siegel      

Impact Policy Manager at ConsenSys

Ben Siegel is the Impact Policy Manager at ConsenSys. Focusing on areas such as human rights and financial inclusion, he is leading ConsenSys' efforts in equipping social impact organizations with blockchain solutions.

After spending time working in the political sphere, including an internship with Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren, and a stint at the European Parliament, Siegel spent his senior year of college taking an in-depth look at the way we currently handle humanitarian aid. As a result, he became extremely interested in experimental technologies, specifically, the growing role they have to play for the impact sector.

Post-graduation, Siegel became increasingly enthralled with blockchain’s potential as a tool for social change. This led him straight into ConsenSys, where he co-founded the Social Impact team as well as the broader Blockchain for Social Impact Coalition (BSIC). He is dedicated to bringing blockchain technology more directly into social impact work and bridging the gap between technologists and humanitarians.

Outside of ConsenSys, Siegel is an advisor to NeedsList, a social startup that allows donors to directly buy necessary supplies for refugees across the globe. He is also a mentor for the Katapult Accelerator program, based in Oslo, Norway.
