Daniel de Gruijter, CEO, Incitement

Daniel de Gruijter

CEO, Cofounder

About Daniel


There isn‘t a more fitting description for Daniel than that by thecrazyones.org. From building a profitable online strategy business with zero investment even before graduating to growing multi-million dollar businesses and tech projects as Head of Conversions at Mindvalley, Daniel has a track record of outstanding results.

His entrepreneurial zeal led him to cofound Incitement where he continues to lead as CEO. Daniel is often behind-the-scenes. This is an arena where he thrives by captaining the team, pursuing operational excellence, and implementing strategies that have grown Incitement to what is now widely considered Southeast Asia‘s #1 social business. In 2014, Daniel was recognised by Richard Branson‘s Talent Unleashed Awards. He has shared the stage with other successful entrepreneurs like Khailee Ng, Managing Partner at 500 Startups.

Incitement‘s strategic direction is often led by Daniel‘s bold and visionary business approach, one that constantly innovates, constantly disrupts. When he saw the innovation that today's technology could bring to the CSR industry, the idea for Inpactor and CSR Token was conceived.

He is arguably one of the most significant upcoming thought leaders in the social industry and is internationally sought after to deliver keynotes at high-level industry conferences.

In all these years, Zikry has shared his vision of a world united to achieve one goal: tackling society‘s most pressing issues. At the recent Finance Tech Innovation 2017 in Singapore, Zikry spoke about fintech application in the humanitarian sector, the vehicle that could turn his vision into reality.
