Resume for Daniel Harris, Founder, Kendraio:

"Daniel is currently leading [Kendraio](https://www.kendra.io), which he founded in 1999, to promote an open content marketplace for the Internet. The aim is to drive interoperability between and within every link in the content value chain – enabling artists to manage their digital assets, metadata and workflow more efficiently – driving increased revenue to content owners and a more pleasurable buying experience for consumers. Having raised over 1M EUR in [research grants](https://www.kendra.io/funding) from Europe, UK and Google, Kendraio is funded into 2020.

Daniel has worked extensively in the UK Internet industry. In 1996, Daniel co-founded Cerbernet and served as CEO till late 1998. Under his watchful eye Cerbernet grew to become the UK's leading independent broadband Internet Service Provider.
