The Interledger Community 🌱

Hello everyone! I'm excited to be here :)

Hello everyone, I’m Vineel Reddy, the new Community Manager at the Interledger Foundation. I’m super excited to be here and look forward to engaging with you and learning more about the Web Monetization Community.

With a background in Community Strategy and Advocacy, I have spent the last 12 years in community building and user engagement across Technology, Education and Creator ecosystems. I helped build global programs, campaigns, and events.

Before joining the Interledger Foundation, I was the founder at Collab House. Collab House designed programs, products, spaces, and services. Microsoft, PwC India, Société Générale, U.S. Embassy, EO, GreenPark Hotels, and several others partnered with Collab House to engage in the areas of Community & User Engagement, Emerging Technology, Design Thinking, and Innovation.

As a Community Coordinator at Mozilla, I supported the global Firefox Student Ambassador Program. I led Firefox OS launch initiatives in India. Coordinated Market Research on the ‘Mobile Opportunity Initiative’, working with GSM Mobiles and Mozilla Foundation. The research focused on addressing the gap of locally relevant content that can be accessed through mobile devices. I was a user engagement intern at Mozilla, Mountain View in 2010.

As a Mozilla Community member, I helped found Mozilla India, to bring the values of the open internet and support Mozilla’s mission. I was in the Mozilla Reps Council for two terms, the official governing body for Mozilla volunteers.

It is my second week at the Interledger Foundation, and I’m learning and exploring my way around. The Grand Web Monetization Experiment at MozFest allowed me to witness the potential of open payments and financial inclusion. I was thrilled to interact with some of you briefly and had a great time co-hosting an emergent-session.

As a Community Manager at Interledger Foundation, I will be here to support the community initiatives, engage with the Interledger ecosystem at large, help make connections and be a liaison between the community, ILF team, and partners.

Thrilled and I look forward to talking to you all on our upcoming community call!
