    SPEAKER, 2020



    SPEAKER, 2020



    What does “creating meaningful impact” mean in the world of Venture Capital? Is venture capital inherently impactful? Do venture capital funds need to make it a central part of their mission to claim impact? These are a few of the questions my international panel of Venture Capitalists wanted to explore in a recent panel hosted by Girls inTech and INSEAD Indevor student club. Venture Capital is often referred to as the original impact investing vehicle. Whilst the field retains a financial-returns-first approach, there are an increasing amount of VC Funds placing environmental and social impact at the core of their strategies - alongside financial returns.

    SPEAKER, 2019


    Imagine an economy, without friction—a new world of digital marketplaces in which labour, information, and money move easily, cheaply, and almost instantly. In his 1999 book, The Road Ahead, Bill Gates defined “friction-free capitalism.” At the time it was a prediction. But by 2015 it became a reality. In this session, I will showcase disruptive Asian pioneers enabling a friction-free digital future for their markets. These pioneers are not only marching their ecosystems towards a friction-free future, but also a socially viable one. We will explore: what they are doing to digitize and remove friction from their industry sectors. if a friction-free economy results in an economy free of middlemen? What are the key benefits for consumers, and what are the advantages to society? If technologies of the digital future can remove friction like time, accessibility, and distance? How can we do that inclusively, so everyone gets the same access and on the same playing field? In a friction-free economy where business models are assets like, what do you view as the 3 key ingredients that are going to empower companies to not only survive but thrive? If a friction-free economy lowers barriers, “allowing every person and organization the same opportunities, what should we expect in the future?

    Quarter Life Campus in Dubai - Masters vs Robots in a Smart Nation




    Commentators are arguing how many jobs will be lost to digitization. Yet, there's one way in which humans cannot fully be replaced: empathy and personalized interactions. So how will customer engagement change as a result of artificial intelligence? Will robots be able to emulate human empathy? And how can we design a path such that humans and robots work to complement each other? In this session, participants gained an understanding of the jobs that are susceptible to automation. We explored just how much robots will be able to emulate human empathy, and gained an understanding of how humans and robots are best able to work together.
