CEO Dr. Kai Wawrzinek is a lawyer and serial founder and has been most successful with mobile game company Goodgame Studios.

Finally, CTO Daniel Baker has been able to contribute his IT expertise to a number of companies in Hamburg and Silicon Valley.

According to its own description, Impossible Cloud offers the first cloud storage solution for companies based on Web3 technology. This is usually associated with cryptocurrencies and similar blockchain applications, but the startup does not use them. Instead, it promises a decentralized cloud architecture that offers full control over data and is supposed to be faster, cheaper and more secure than traditional cloud offerings.
