Sid Sthalekar

Sid’s experience spans both ends of the economic spectrum: from heading South Asia's largest trading desk, to exploring distributed economic paradigms in the Gandhi Ashram in India.  

As part of the Neighbourhoods project, he is interested in sense-making infrastructure for new kinds of social and economic coordination. Such systems enable the contextual articulation and porting of 'reputation currencies'.  

He believes this is the key to discovery, engagement and commercial interactions within the dimensions of culture and social fabric.
