NuID was founded on the idea that everyone is a citizen of the internet. Sound cryptography should be accessible to everyone, and applicable everywhere.
Our mission is to end mass credential breaches by returning data agency to the individual. We’re working toward a more trustworthy digital landscape; open authentication infrastructure is just the start.
Locke's passion has always been pursuing greater efficiency in a society's most elemental interaction: exchange. It's what drove him headfirst into mining Bitcoin in 2013, and to join the trading desk at Bill Gates' private investment office, BMGI, in 2014.
While obtaining a B.A. in Mathematics and Economics and an M.A. in Finance from Claremont McKenna College, Locke developed software at Google and served as a managing director to a multi-asset class emerging market fund in Mongolia. He went on to co-found the blockchain working group internal to BMGI, which ultimately led him to recognize digital identity as the key area for foundational improvement necessary to usher in the next paradigm of global exchange.
Locke's founding and leadership role at NuID has earned him board positions at a number of early and mid-stage startups in biotechnology, healthcare, and higher education. His earnest drive for efficient exchange extends to knowledge transference and experience sharing across organizational boundaries, which he finds key to effective exchange of the most valuable resource of all—time.
