Meet our team - Mike Knapp

Meet the Team – Mike Knapp

The success of AmiPRO relies on the diverse experience provided by our growing team of experts. We’re excited to share their insights with you and how their experience contributes to the growth and innovation to develop the AmiPRO product – setting new standards in Fintech and Digital Asset investing.

Mike Knapp is passionate about helping people and businesses unlock their potential.

He started his career in technology for the financial services industry. During the dot-com crash, he launched his first business which was a full service IT company serving the needs of small to mid-size businesses.

Mike then switched his focus to strategic advisory and technology management consulting. He has been at the helm of three management consulting firms, including a cyber-security and regulatory practice.  

Mike’s purpose is to create “a-ha” moments – that moment when a leader gets it for themselves and become the heroes of their own stories. Over the past 20 years, he has helped more than 100 companies scale and achieve their goals by making complex things simple.

Mike is MeetAmiInnovations Inc’s (MeetAmi) Leadership Strategist, who supports the technology and vision for AmiPRO’s development leaning heavily on his diverse background in IT security, technology, coaching and the investment industry.

What got you interested in joining the MeetAMi team?  

I have known Sarah Morton, MeetAmi’s Chief Strategy Officer, for over twenty years. Our paths crossed regularly and we knew that one day we would work together.

Sarah’s vision and big ideas are inspiring.  She’s the classic big-picture thinker and disruptor. Hashim Mitha, MeetAmi’s co-founder and CEO is a bold visionary. He is driving the team forward at an insanely fast pace. When you combine Sarah and Hashim’s strengths, you have the ultimate “dynamic duo” for launchingAmiPRO. Who wouldn’t want to be a part of that team?  

I was also attracted to MeetAmi by the opportunity to bring together a software platform and services that make it feasible for early adopters to get involved in Digital Asset investing. The timing couldn’t be better.

What excites you about Digital Asset investing?

Digital Assets, tokenized assets and Blockchain are here to stay. To successfully invest in this emerging asset class, it is important that wealth management advisors understand their fiduciary responsibility to their clients.

Many advisors have a general idea about Digital Assets, Blockchain and tokenized assets but can they act in the best interest of their clients with this limited knowledge? The MeetAmi team is considering the factors, problems, concepts and organizing them into solutions that are sensible and easy to implement within AmiPRO. It’s the ultimate platform for advisors and Multi-FamilyOffices when it comes to properly investing in Digital Assets.

From learning to liquidity, the AmiPRO platform will provide wealth management advisors with the necessary research and content to understand their risk profiles and goals. We are building a purpose-built Digital Asset investing platform that any wealth management firm can easily use.      

What strengths do you provide to the MeetAmi team?

Thinking big is essential for being successful. Guiding teams to organize and take their big, audacious ideas and develop clear plans to make them a reality is my passion.

The team at MeetAmi is awesome and built for execution! I am ensuring that they are focused to achieve what we need – faster – while aligning our key milestones with the company’s mission.

Using my extensive experience in business coaching and strategic planning, I am helping MeetAmi on their journey to be a sustainable, scalable success. Working with Hashim and Sarah, I see a great future for the investment industry with the release of this powerful software.

It’s great to be working with such a dynamic team and unlocking its potential to create the first-ever Digital Asset investing platform in Canada.
