Monty C. M. Metzger, author of "Digital Future" and "Mobile Future 2020", Partner at Digital Leaders Ventures, is a leading thinker on digital business. Rather than focusing on the distant future, Monty takes an anthropological approach - scanning the near horizon global trends, disruptive technologies and consumer innovations on the verge of hitting critical mass, and then translating these into usable business strategies.

Since Monty found his first Internet company in 1998 he embraces digital media, as a digital leader, trend scout and future thinker. He graduated in Switzerland and Germany in Business Administration and electronic Marketing. Monty previously ran a global Trend Research Consultancy with offices in Munich, Tokyo, Beijing and New York. After the acquisition, Monty left the company and advised several European investment houses and selected innovative start-ups.

More recently in 2013 he has started, a global network of digital visionaries, with support by the Bavarian Government.

In his current role at Ahead of Time, Monty has lead Trend Tours to innovation hotspots and advised the CEOs and senior management teams of a wide range of governmental organizations and companies including arvato, BMW Group, Deutsche Telekom, EPlus Group, GE, Goldbach Media Group, Henkel, Holtzbrinck Publishing Group, Holcim, KPN, SIEMENS, Vodafone, WEKA and WPP.

Monty is married and lives with his wife and his two kids in Munich, Germany.
