Damion Hankejh

Damion Hänkejh is the Founding Partner of Ingk Labs, board director of Payz and CTO of Majestyk Apps.

He has founded, invested in and advised startup ventures with an emphasis on intellectual property strategy for two decades.

As a 25-year old, Damion invented Internet customer service before IBM coined the term eCommerce. Under his direction, Ingk Labs developed and deployed InstantService, the first and largest carrier-class Internet telecommunications platform for live agent customer service. Oracle acquired InstantService in a $1 billion rollup (now Oracle Live Help).

His career began as the only non-degreed prodigal teenager in the research and development lab at HP, where he served as the company’s youngest systems analyst. He worked on the first implementation of Adobe PostScript in HP printers and handwriting recognition systems. He later built bleeding edge telemedicine/robotics and enterprise software startups into profitable companies acquired by industry leaders.

Damion was honored as a Smithsonian Laureate for his work as founder and CTO of Virtual Operating Room (now Swedish Medical), a pioneering research project at the nexus of medicine, robotics and global network infrastructure which set the stage for the first fully accredited virtual operating rooms worldwide.

He attended the Massachusetts Institute of Technology where he studied Electrical Engineering and Computer Science with an emphasis on Massively Parallel Computing Architectures, Machine Intelligence and Physics.
