Andrew Keys

SpecialityCo-Founding Managing Partner, DARMA Capital

As Managing Partner at DARMA Capital, Andrew spearheads investing, global business development, and product strategy. Prior to joining DARMA, Andrew was co-founder of ConsenSys Capital and Head of Global Business Development at ConsenSys—the world’s leading Ethereum blockchain software company—where he created much of the financial service offerings and remains on the Board of Advisors.

During his tenure at ConsenSys, Andrew demonstrated the importance of blockchain technology in digitizing the global economy to central banks and Fortune 500 companies. In doing so, Andrew co-created the first Ethereum Blockchain-as-a-Service offering with Microsoft and launched the Enterprise Ethereum Alliance (EEA), a cross-industry initiative that has grown into the largest open-source blockchain enterprise consortium on Earth.

Andrew comes to DARMA Capital with a wealth of capital markets, technology, and entrepreneurial experience. Previously, he worked for UBS in equities analysis. Later, he led the creation of alternative asset insurance products for various insurers and hedge funds. Andrew then co-founded a healthcare revenue cycle management company, where he encountered the inefficiencies of legacy databases and payment processing systems. This experience led Andrew to blockchain, Ethereum, ConsenSys, and finally to DARMA Capital.

Andrew graduated from Loyola University in Maryland and the University of Auckland with degrees in economics and international finance.
