Advisor for D3 Labs, engineers for ITL and Simprints

Irawan Mulyadi, commissioner at PT International Biometrics, the company behind the Indonesian national ID system, has become a key advisor for blockchain fintech company D3 Labs.

But achieving this was not always easy and its unusual business development path has recently become a Harvard Business School Case.
