Startupbootcamp Smart Transportation & Energy Mentor
Daniela Schiffer co-founded Changers.com in 2010. The Berlin-based startup introduced a portable solar charging system at the Web 2.0 Summit in October 2011, which aims to end global warming by shifting society to the use of a new currency backed by the sun. The Changers System combines the production of pure and clean energy, consumer desire for more independence and mobility with the revolutionary power of social media. Before this, Daniela worked as a consultant at a communications agency where she was closely involved with high-tech companies, specifically in the field of green energy and photovoltaics. Having always been passionate about how the usage of media changes our society, she collaborated on different media art projectsduring her first years in Berlin, contributing to projects such as reboot.fm and giving lectures in the Hochschule für Gestaltung und Kunst in Zurich as well as workshops at Radio B92 in Belgrade. Her work has been presented in different exhibitions, amongst others at hack.it.art in 2005, Tesla Berlin, Hochschule für Gestaltung und Kunst in Zurich and Gemäldegalerie Berlin in 2006.
