“My mission is to co-create ventures, technologies and moonshots which reimagine ability, education, wellbeing, diversity and human potential. I explore, co-create, connect and influence.
I started my path in 2005 when I launched a hardware tech think-tank. Over my journey, I founded / worked on tech companies and labs, paired technology and art, helped to facilitate tech ecosystems through North America to APAC, EMEA (Middle East, Africa, Europe) and emerging communities, screened over 2k ventures on behalf of my projects and ecosystems like MIT, Singularity University, 500 Startups, Techstars, contributed projects in ethics (data, AI, tech, inclusion), deeptech (ex. Conception X), impact and sustainability.”
Why Tech With Purpose?
“It’s driven by my personality journey when I tried to turn my health limitations into various ideas on the intersections of technology, wellbeing, learning, ecosystems and impact. Now I’m trying to connect the dots between teams, talent and ecosystems with the same mission.”
