Seeking Alpha Analyst Since 2012

Stephan Bogner is mining analyst at Rockstone Research, he has independently analyzed capital markets and resource stocks for more than 11 years. He is also CEO at Elementum International AG of Switzerland trading precious metals and storing them in a high-security vaulting facility within the St. Gotthard Mountain Massif in Central Switzerland which is a duty-free zone. Bogner earned his degree in economics in 2004 at the International School of Management in Dortmund, Germany. He spent five years in Dubai brokering and reselling physical commodities and now resides in Zurich, Switzerland. Diplom-Kaufmann Stephan Bogner began his academic studies in economics at the International School of Management in Dortmund (Germany) and was one of many who was hooked by the thrilling lectures of Professor Bocker on economic and monetary systems. Yet he was (and still is) the only student of the university that wrote a diploma thesis on precious metals as a protection against inflation (“Gold in a macroeconomic context with special consideration of the price formation process”) that was completed in 2002 under the supervision of Professor Bocker. Mr Bogner specialised in Finance & Asset Management, Production & Logistics and International Law & Entrepreneurship. He also studied at the European Business School in London (UK) and the University of Queensland in Brisbane (Australia). In 2003, he started working closely with Ferdinand Lips, among others to publish and market his latest bestseller (“Gold Wars – The Battle Against Sound Money As Seen From A Swiss Perspective“) in the German-speaking countries. He revised and translated the English version into German (“Die Gold Verschwörung”). In 2004, he went to work at the biggest gold market in the world (Dubai), where he started up two companies that were specialised in re-selling and brokering physical commodities and consulting with publicly-listed mining companies. Moreover, he was co-founder and, until late 2006, partner of the first German silver stockletter and online information platform (Silberinfo.com) besides dealing with coins and bars. Mr Bogner is an active analyst for several research firms, institutional and private investors and family offices, mainly for the analysis and valuation of capital markets and publicly-listed companies with a focus on geology, exploration, development and production of resource deposits. Since years, he lives in Zurich (Switzerland) and regularly publishes articles in German and English about economic contexts, currencies, commodities and companies active in exploration and mining of natural resources worldwide. www.rockstone-research.com www.elementum-international.ch www.elementum-deutschland.de/en/team.html

Access Granted To The Three Cs Of Success

Full size animation of the Zinc8 network

When some of the world´s brightest people and biggest companies unite, there must be an urgency to solve a bigger problem. In order to build a smarter, more sustainable future for the planet, a far-reaching multidisciplinary effort is needed to speed up the rate of greentech innovation together – and to finance the economies of the future.

Right now, there is an innovation-based industrial revolution going on to re-shape our world for the better.

Unfortunately, it´s happening too slow. Innovations and new technologies take too long to enter the market and to then scale in a meaningful way. Capital, capabilities (know-how) and connections are the greatest limiting factors. The result:

• 90% of new startups fail.• 75% of venture-backed startups fail.• Under 50% of businesses make it to their fifth year.• Only 40% of startups actually turn a profit.• 82% of businesses that fail do so because of cash flow problems.

Just by looking at such statistics, it´s tempting to jump to the conclusion that so many startups fail because their products and services are not good enough for widespread adoption in free market economies. However, the reality is that in many cases it´s not the innovation being flawed or unfeasible but entrepreneurs simply lacking the above mentioned three Cs (Capital + Capabilities + Connections).

Fortunately, we are witnessing a growing number of imaginative people, resourceful companies and supportive governments get their act together to accelerate and grow greentech innovation and commercialization. A new approach is taken – one that spins a network of expertise and capital never seen before in the history of industrial mega-trends. For the first time ever, the world is uniting in an effort to solve a common problem for the benefit of everybody.
