Joris Hensen is responsible for the development of the Deutsche Bank API Program, which he co-founded at the beginning of 2015. In his more than ten years at Deutsche Bank, he has worked in various international projects as a project and innovation manager.
Joris Hensen became enthusiastic about innovations and future trends at a very early stage and in 2012 he was given the opportunity to set up a corporate foresight program in which future scenarios and innovation strategies for Deutsche Bank were developed.
What once began as a foresight scenario was officially launched in November 2017 as a developer portal, which offers external partners the opportunity to connect their apps and services via application programming interfaces (APIs) with the data of the bank customers, thus opening up new areas of value creation for Deutsche Bank. Joris Hensen understands himself as an intrapreneur and is dedicated about future trends and how they can change and improve people's lives.
