Digital guru and former KPMG chief digital officer, Anthony Stevens, has launched a new company, Digital Asset Ventures.

Based in Melbourne, Digital Asset Ventures is an advisory, research and software development business, focused on three key areas: Distributed ledger technology, artificial intelligence, and big data and data networks. Its key client sweet spot is early-stage ventures looking for technology leadership and implementation support, and pre-digital incumbents’ (mid to large corporations with pre-digital origins). The venture aims to transform the way companies operate and compete in the digital age.

Stevens' team includes fellow KPMG alumnus Louis Strauss as lead strategist, Rajesh Barade as financial market analyst, Alexander Sly as token and DLT analyst, Tishan Jayasekera as financial analyst, and Simon Overend as digital product owner.

His third business, Stevens said Digital Asset Ventures aims to guide companies through the colossal task of digital transformation.

“Having founded two start-ups, and worked for businesses of different shapes and sizes, I have consistently seen the challenge faced by companies with digital transformation – understanding how to take risk, where to prioritise and, in many cases, just move from zero to one,” he said. 

“Our goal is to provide strategic and execution capability to support corporate ventures underpinned by technology. There is a massive opportunity to support the shift many companies are undertaking as they move into the Fourth Industrial Revolution.” 

Prior to his roles as CDO and CIO at KPMG, Stevens worked for Spotless Group, where he led the company’s IT and business transformation program. He is also the founder and chairman of DeviceDesk.
