I currently head the Samsung Accelerator where I find and fund entrepreneurs, support their early startups with product and organizational guidance, and provide insider access to Samsung information and decision-makers.
I founded the Designers Accord, the coalition of designers, educators, and business leaders working together to create positive impact. The Designers Accord helped advance the conversation around the ethics, practices, and responsibilities of the creative community, and included over half a million people from 100 countries.
I was named a “Guru” of the year by Fortune magazine, a “Hero of the Environment” by TIME magazine, a “Master of Design” by Fast Company, and one of the “World’s Most Influential Designers” by BusinessWeek. The World Economic Forum named me a “Young Global Leader”.
I feel fortunate to have had the chance to talk about my point of view on systems thinking, cultural change, and innovation at events and in publications all around the world ranging from Davos to SXSW, and Fast Company to Core77.
