AD affects people in all parts of the world, with age being the biggest risk factor. The incidence of AD is one in ten over the age of 65, one in two by age 90.</p> <ul> <li><strong>Disease-modifying therapies for Alzheimer*s disease are urgently needed. There is a huge and growing market and patient population worldwide for Alzheimer*s disease and there is no disease-modifying drug No existing technologies under development have been shown to delay disease progression or provide significant patient benefit</strong></li> <li><strong>CENNA has a novel and different proprietary? patented? technology? that? arrests? the? underlying cause of the disease and that addresses previous failures by others</strong></li> </ul> <p>Cenna Biosciences is a biopharmaceutical company dedicated to the discovery and development of novel drugs to prevent and treat Alzheimer*s disease. There is close to twenty years of academic research at the University of California at San Diego (UCSD) into this disease-modifying drug. Their target is A-Beta, which is the primary toxic insult in Alzheimer*s disease. It is now generally regarded as the first thing that goes wrong. Cenna is able to inhibit the production of A-Beta using a novel technology that addresses some of the problems encountered with previous attempts by others.J oin us as we explore the new discoveries on this important topic.</p> <h3>Featuring: Dr. Nazneen Dewji, President & Founder, Cenna Biosciences</h3> <p>Dr. Nazneen Dewji is the President and CEO of Cenna Biosciences Inc. and of Cura Therapeutics LLC, in La Jolla, CA and an Associate Adjunct Professor of Medicine at the University of California, San Diego. Nazneen was born in Tanzania and raised in England.? She was educated at the University of London, where she earned her B.Sc. (Hons.) in Biochemistry and Ph.D. in Protein Chemistry and Enzymology. In 1986 she accepted a faculty position in the department of Medicine at UCSD. Since then she has worked on the molecular and cellular mechanisms in Alzheimer*s disease (AD). The discoveries made in her laboratory at UCSD support the development of new disease-modifying drug candidates for the treatment of AD. These are currently being developed at Cenna Biosciences Inc, a start-up company that she, along with her late colleague Dr. S. J. Singer, founded in 2006 and at Cura Therapeutics LLC that Nazneen founded in 2017.? Cenna*s and Cura*s proprietary technologies address the underlying cause of the disease, the inappropriate deposition of the toxic species, ?-amyloid (A?), in the brains of patients with AD. The Companies have developed novel targets and are developing several lead peptide and small molecule compounds as disease-modifying drug candidates for the treatment of AD. The work so far has been funded by non-diluting NIH and other grants. The Intellectual Property that forms the basis of Cenna*s and Cura*s approaches is covered by U.S. and foreign Patents.</p> <div class="center"> <p><img class="center" src="http://www.cennabiosciences.com/images/about1.jpg" width="800" /></p> <p><img class="center" src="http://www.cennabiosciences.com/images/about2.jpg" /></p> </div> <p>?</p> <p style="line-height: 14.2pt;"><em><b><span style="text-decoration: underline;"><span style="font-size: 10.0pt; font-family: 'Arial',sans-serif; color: #333333;">AGENDA</span></span></b></em><span style="font-size: 10.0pt; font-family: 'Arial',sans-serif; color: #333333;"><br /> 5:30:?Registration, Appetizers and Networking<br /> 6:30:?Presentation<br /> 7:45:?Audience Q & A<br /> 8:00:?Program Concludes,?Networking, Coffee & Dessert until?8:30<br /> </span></p> <p style="line-height: 14.2pt;"><em><b><span style="text-decoration: underline;"><span style="font-size: 10.0pt; font-family: 'Arial',sans-serif; color: #333333;">REGISTRATION & COST</span></span></b></em><span style="font-size: 10.0pt; font-family: 'Arial',sans-serif; color: #333333;"><br /> MITEF Members and MITEF Sponsors: Free<br /> Non-members: $65<br /> MIT Alums: ?$50<br /> ??On-Site:?$75</span></p> <p style="line-height: 14.2pt;"><strong><span style="font-size: 10.0pt; font-family: 'Arial',sans-serif; color: #333333;">NOTE: ?Online Registration ends at midnight, the day prior to the?event. ?If you register online the day of the event, you will be charged $75, the on-site price.</span></strong></p> <p style="line-height: 14.2pt;"><em><b><span style="text-decoration: underline;"><span style="font-size: 10.0pt; font-family: 'Arial',sans-serif; color: #333333;">PAYPAL is our payment processor and accepts ALL MAJOR Credit Cards.</span></span></b></em></p> <p>Tickets: <a class="ai1ec-ticket-url-exported" >https://app.greenrope.com/publicCalendar2.pl?Cal=ef4b415512ae2d08e3cf102013f48b96&Event=148</a>.</p>America/Los_Angeles2018-02-21T17:30:00America/Los_Angeles2018-02-21T20:30:00en-USMITEF San DiegoAnita Rusch; 858-771-MIT1 (858-771-6481); Anita.Rusch@gmail.com+32.949398-117.236459Knobbe Martens @ 12790 El Camino Real #100, San Diego, CA 92130, USA0http://www.acuemax.cn/event/2018-feb-21/$65.00https://app.greenrope.com/publicCalendar2.pl?Cal=ef4b415512ae2d08e3cf102013f48b96&Event=148ai1ec-4623@www.acuemax.cn2021-02-05T18:40:18ZProgram Committee Meeting<h3><a href="http://www.acuemax.cn/wp-content/uploads/2015/09/BackstagePass_Art.jpg"><img class="alignnone size-full wp-image-4634" src="http://www.acuemax.cn/wp-content/uploads/2015/09/BackstagePass_Art.jpg" alt="" width="287" height="241" /></a>It*s like a Backstage Pass to our programs!</h3> <p>Have you ever wanted to meet with top San Diego executives and not just shake their hands, but really get to know their operations and work standards??

Andrew Berkhausen, Executive Committee, MIT Enterprise Forum</strong></em></p> <p>Here*s how some companies are applying blockchain technology:</p> <div class="paywall"> <ul> <li><strong>Walmart</strong> Inc. is beginning to use the online ledger technology to manage supply-chain data for mangoes, berries and a couple of dozen other products. The system, built with <strong>IBM</strong>, will help Walmart figure out where bad food came from during product recalls</li> <li><strong>British Airways</strong> last year tested blockchain to maintain data on flights between London, Geneva and Miami. The idea was to stop conflicting flight information from appearing at gates, on airport monitors, at airline websites and in customer apps.</li> <li><strong>Cargill Inc.</strong> tested blockchain in turkey distribution this Thanksgiving, with some family farms that provide turkeys to Cargill uploading data so that shoppers could learn about the provenance of the birds they bought from supermarkets. The company in the past has tried various technologies to improve traceability in its food supply chain, including RFID, but sees more promise in blockchain,</li> <li><strong>L.L. Bean Inc.</strong> wants to test the combination of blockchain and Internet of Things technology to understand how people use its outdoor gear.?In a test due to begin this year, L.L. Bean plans to ship a line of coats and boots with sewn-in sensors that send data to the public Ethereum blockchain platform.</li> <li>Over <strong>40 top financial institutions</strong> and a growing number of firms across industries are experimenting with distributed ledger technology as a secure and transparent way to digitally track the ownership of assets, a move that could speed up transactions and cut costs while lowering the risk of fraud.</li> <li><strong>The Music industry</strong> is testing blockchain as a means to manage the micro-transactional nature of streaming music, turning pennies into dollars.</li> </ul> <p>Corporate spending on blockchain software is expected to reach $2.1 billion this year, up from $945 million in 2017, according to researcher International Data Corp. Distribution. Retail and Manufacturing are among the industries due to ramp up blockchain spending in 2018</p> <p>Last December, we held a discussion on Blockchain and the program sold out.?

C. Jackson and award-winning journalist Steve Chapple traveled the length of the Mississippi River interviewing farmers, fishermen, scientists, and policymakers to better understand the mounting environmental problems ravaging the United States. Along their journey, which quickly expands to California, Florida, and New York, the pair uncovered surprising and profound connections between ecological systems and environmental crises across the country. Artfully weaving together independent research and engaging storytelling, Jackson and Chapple examine the looming threats from recent hurricanes and fires, industrial agriculture, river mismanagement, extreme weather events, drought, and rising sea levels that are pushing the country toward the breaking point of ecological and economic collapse, in their new book Breakpoint: Reckoning with America*s Environmental Crises.</p> <p>Yet, despite these challenges, the authors provide optimistic and practical solutions for addressing these multidimensional issues to achieve greater environmental stability, human well-being, and future economic prosperity.

The platform has been validated for six different cancer types, stroke, and infectious diseases. In the cancer field alone, there is a tremendous need to improve diagnostic capabilities. Globally, there are more than 14 million reported cancer cases per year. Each case being not just a number, but associated with a story of confusion, financial challenges, despair and loss. In the year 2030 it is projected that globally 11 million people will die of cancer. In the U.S. alone, there were more than 500,000 deaths and 1.66 million new cases reported in 2014. Direct cancer care costs in the U.S. have been estimated at $125 billion in 2010 and expected to grow to $200 billion by 2020.</p> <p>Better cancer detection, and subsequent personalized treatment, precision medicine, are keys to improve patient treatment and outcomes. Detection of novel biomarkers, such as Circulating Tumor Cells, CTCs, are leading the way to improved diagnostics. The global market for CTC based diagnostics alone is estimated to reach almost $9 billion by 2018, with a compounded annual growth rate of 18.9% for 2013 每 2018<sup>*)?</sup>. In order to improve the survival rate for many cancer diseases, the field of oncology needs better therapies and optimized personalized patient treatment. This will require the evolution of better technologies. BioFluidica is now delivering these new and improved technologies for the analysis of circulating markers, fullfilling the promise of a true liquid biopsy.</p> <div id="attachment_5161" style="width: 310px" class="wp-caption alignnone"><a href="http://www.acuemax.cn/wp-content/uploads/2018/11/Rolf-Muller-Headshot.jpg"><img aria-describedby="caption-attachment-5161" class="size-medium wp-image-5161" src="http://www.acuemax.cn/wp-content/uploads/2018/11/Rolf-Muller-Headshot-300x248.jpg" alt="" width="300" height="248" srcset="http://www.acuemax.cn/wp-content/uploads/2018/11/Rolf-Muller-Headshot-300x248.jpg 300w, http://www.acuemax.cn/wp-content/uploads/2018/11/Rolf-Muller-Headshot-768x635.jpg 768w, http://www.acuemax.cn/wp-content/uploads/2018/11/Rolf-Muller-Headshot-1030x852.jpg 1030w, http://www.acuemax.cn/wp-content/uploads/2018/11/Rolf-Muller-Headshot-1500x1241.jpg 1500w, http://www.acuemax.cn/wp-content/uploads/2018/11/Rolf-Muller-Headshot-705x583.jpg 705w, http://www.acuemax.cn/wp-content/uploads/2018/11/Rolf-Muller-Headshot-450x372.jpg 450w" sizes="(max-width: 300px) 100vw, 300px" /></a><p id="caption-attachment-5161" class="wp-caption-text">BioFluidica CEO Rolf Muller, Ph.D.</p></div> <p>Rolf Muller is a biotechnology leader combining science and business knowledge to build and grow successful technology companies that further healthcare and the field of personalized medicine.

Then in 1989, Karl Strauss opened it*s Brewery & Grill, creating the catalyst for San Diego*s craft beer rise. From Karl Strauss, you can trace the San Diego beer scene, with several of it*s the original employees opening well-known breweries, including Pizza Port Brewery (which spawned Port Brewing and Lost Abbey, among others) and the Home Brew Mart, which gave rise to Ballast Point Brewing Company. Then in 1994, Chris White, opened White Labs, one of the world*s preeminent yeast labs creating ※unprecedented access to world class yeast§ and ※custom yeast strains.§ Learn important business lessons from leading brewers at our panel discussion.?

While SB 327 focuses on IoT specifically (this includes connected things such as connected cars, industrial devices, retail point-of-sale or medical devices, to name a few), privacy can impact other products and apps as well, including social apps, media, and telecommunications.? Across the board, these two new acts have an impact on a wide number of products and services.</p> <p><strong>Examples where Privacy by Design was needed</strong></p> <p>When we look at the Facebook data privacy scandal around the collection and sharing of personally identifiable information on as many as 87 million people or read in recent news about hackers who have been able to spy on children via popular ※smart home§ security apps, we realize that even honestly designed products can end up with unintended consequences.? As our world becomes more mobile and more connected, how can developers build privacy and security into their products to keep their customers safe and secure?</p> <p><strong>Panel Focus</strong></p> <p>This panel will consist of technical, product, and design professionals who will focus on how we can apply design principles that will make our new products safe and secure.</p> <p><strong>What is Privacy by Design? </strong></p> <p>The term ※Privacy by Design§ means ※data protection through technology design.§ ※Privacy by Design§ along with ※Privacy by Default§ are one of the key changes that were brought into the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) that went into effect in Europe in May 2018.</p> <p>※Privacy by Design§ and ※Privacy by Default§ have been frequently discussed topics related to data protection. The first thoughts of ※Privacy by Design§ were expressed in the 1970s and were incorporated in the 1990s into the RL 95/46/EC data protection directive. According to recital 46 in this Directive, Technical and Organizational Measures (TOM) must be taken already at the time of planning a processing system to protect data safety.</p> <p><strong>Startups and New Product Introductions: MVP vs. Privacy / Security</strong></p> <p>As entrepreneurs we tend to think in terms of Minimally Viable Product or MVP when we first launch a product or app, and typically instantiating privacy or security at that point is thought to take up too much time or investment and risk ※holding us back§ in a competitive space. Yet that leaves a window of vulnerability. When should we consider designing in privacy and security? Is there ※right§ timing?</p> <p>For that answer and more, join us Wednesday, January 15.</p> <p><u><strong>AGENDA</strong></u></p> <p>5:30: Registration, networking, food and drinks<br /> 6:30:?Program<br /> 7:30:?Audience Q & A<br /> 8:00: Program concludes, followed by networking, coffee & dessert until 8:30</p> <p><strong><a title="Jan 15 registration" >Register Today!</a></strong></p> <p><strong>SPEAKERS</strong></p> <p><a href="http://www.acuemax.cn/wp-content/uploads/2019/08/20191029-mary-beth-mccabe_cropped-photo.png"><img class="alignleft wp-image-5421" src="http://www.acuemax.cn/wp-content/uploads/2019/12/updated2019headshot.jpg" alt="kathleen glass" width="150" height="195" /></a></p> <p><b><strong>Kathleen Glass </strong>?(moderator)</b><b><br /> </b><strong>VP of Marketing, 2B Advice</strong></p> <p>Kathleen Glass is global VP of Marketing for 2B Advice, providers of outsourced privacy management services and data privacy compliance software.?

After deciding a career as a professional athlete in traditional sports was a no-go, Hector started focusing on his passion for gaming and today is considered by some to be one of the godfathers of what is now eSports.? As first a professional DOTA 2 player (this was before gamers were called athletes), Hector not only organized some of the original leagues and competed in events, but found he had a talent for building teams and developing players, many of whom are still competing today.</p> <p>In 2012, Hector retired from professional gaming and took advantage of his experience and vision for what esports was becoming, to launch his first company, FlipSid3 Tactics.? FlipSid3 Tactics (FT) is a professional esports organization with currently over 20 Championships Titles across 4 divisions.?? Besides being Founder and CEO, Hector began coaching his young players across these divisions as well as produced some of the first professional gaming events in the US, Brazil and India.</p> <p>Over the following three years, as the esports industry experienced exponential growth and the competition for solid players for teams skyrocketed. Hector recognized the need for tools and programs that could gather data and stats and provide analytics to help recruit those top players to his team.? This led to the launch of his second company, Stats Helix, which today is a tech company using data to enhance player performances and subsequent gaming experiences.? Today Stats Helix is the go to for most major esports events as well as is the data and analytics platform used by Twitch, the streaming channel exclusive to the esports industry.</p> <p>Having changed the esports industry with his ※moneyball§ approach to player development and having created the interactivity for digital broadcasting, Hector is moving on to his next venture, Ascent Sports.? Ascent Sports is positioned to be the industry standard for stats and analytics, digital streaming enhancements and game data expertise.? While the big data companies have game data, they do not have the expertise on how to customize and use the data to improve player performance, the player and viewer experience and improve and optimize game development.</p> <p>?</p> <p><strong><a href="http://www.acuemax.cn/wp-content/uploads/2019/08/MCJ-Headshot-1-1-2-1-scaled.jpg"><img class="alignleft wp-image-5614 " src="http://www.acuemax.cn/wp-content/uploads/2019/08/MCJ-Headshot-1-1-2-1-scaled.jpg" alt="" width="173" height="212" srcset="http://www.acuemax.cn/wp-content/uploads/2019/08/MCJ-Headshot-1-1-2-1-scaled.jpg 2091w, http://www.acuemax.cn/wp-content/uploads/2019/08/MCJ-Headshot-1-1-2-1-245x300.jpg 245w, http://www.acuemax.cn/wp-content/uploads/2019/08/MCJ-Headshot-1-1-2-1-841x1030.jpg 841w, http://www.acuemax.cn/wp-content/uploads/2019/08/MCJ-Headshot-1-1-2-1-768x940.jpg 768w, http://www.acuemax.cn/wp-content/uploads/2019/08/MCJ-Headshot-1-1-2-1-1254x1536.jpg 1254w, http://www.acuemax.cn/wp-content/uploads/2019/08/MCJ-Headshot-1-1-2-1-1672x2048.jpg 1672w, http://www.acuemax.cn/wp-content/uploads/2019/08/MCJ-Headshot-1-1-2-1-1225x1500.jpg 1225w, http://www.acuemax.cn/wp-content/uploads/2019/08/MCJ-Headshot-1-1-2-1-576x705.jpg 576w, http://www.acuemax.cn/wp-content/uploads/2019/08/MCJ-Headshot-1-1-2-1-450x551.jpg 450w" sizes="(max-width: 173px) 100vw, 173px" /></a>M.Cole Jones </strong></p> <p><strong>Executive Chairman of GameBRKZ and Managing Partner at RIISE Ventures</strong></p> <p>Cole is Executive Chairman of GameBRKZ and Managing Partner at RIISE Ventures headquartered in Atlanta, GA.

From launching and revamping businesses to running for profit and not for profit organizations to working major events such as Olympic Games, NFL Super Bowls, Surf Championships, Award Shows, Film Festivals, and Fashion Shows, she has a broad level of experience. Her skills include facility design, construction and operations; business development and strategic planning; financial forecasting, budget management and resource allocation; staff, volunteers and contractor leadership as well as marketing, branding and sales.</p> <p>Lisa has been calling San Diego home since 2004, and when she moved to the region she committed to establishing and growing the Sports and Active Lifestyle Industry. Whether it is creating new events, bringing in existing events and working with early stage, mid-level and mature businesses to establish themselves and direct deal flow within the industry, Lisa loves to help people and organizations succeed.</p> <p>Most recently, Lisa recognized the exponential growth of the esports and gaming industry particularly as she observed the more public, wide scale adoption of esports and gaming among traditional sports athletes as they play to clear their heads prior to or relax after playing their sport. As she has immersed herself in the industry, she has been fortunate to work with and learn from a number of industry experts and rainmakers strengthening her interest and passion for this vertical. In January, she was able to take her traditional sports and event production skills into the esports and gaming world when she was recruited to help produce the Call of Duty League launch. She is looking forward to continuing to learn from her mentors and to produce competitions and events in the future.</p> <p>?</p> <p>?</p> <p align="center"><span style="color: #464646; font-family: 'Georgia',serif;">Visit <a >Our Website</a> to stay updated on?future programs.</span></p> <p>?</p> <p style="text-align: center;">We look forward to connecting with you,</p> <p style="text-align: center;">The Chapter Executive Committee & Advisory Board<br /> MIT Enterprise Forum-San Diego Chapter</p>America/Los_Angeles2020-10-28T17:30:00America/Los_Angeles2020-10-28T19:00:00en-USMITEF San DiegoAdmin@www.acuemax.cn; http://www.acuemax.cn/events0http://www.acuemax.cn/event/esportsintro/freethumbnail;http://www.acuemax.cn/wp-content/uploads/2019/08/Esports-3-300x157.jpg;300;157,medium;http://www.acuemax.cn/wp-content/uploads/2019/08/Esports-3-300x157.jpg;300;157,large;http://www.acuemax.cn/wp-content/uploads/2019/08/Esports-3-300x157.jpg;300;157,full;http://www.acuemax.cn/wp-content/uploads/2019/08/Esports-3-300x157.jpg;300;157ai1ec-5459@www.acuemax.cn2021-02-05T18:40:18ZInnovations in Impact Investing + The New Normal<h3></h3> <h3><a href="http://www.acuemax.cn/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/Impact-Investing-image-1.jpg"><img class=" wp-image-5570 aligncenter" src="http://www.acuemax.cn/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/Impact-Investing-image-1-300x243.jpg" alt="" width="300" height="243" srcset="http://www.acuemax.cn/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/Impact-Investing-image-1-300x243.jpg 300w, http://www.acuemax.cn/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/Impact-Investing-image-1-768x623.jpg 768w, http://www.acuemax.cn/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/Impact-Investing-image-1-495x400.jpg 495w, http://www.acuemax.cn/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/Impact-Investing-image-1-845x684.jpg 845w, http://www.acuemax.cn/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/Impact-Investing-image-1-705x572.jpg 705w, http://www.acuemax.cn/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/Impact-Investing-image-1-450x365.jpg 450w, http://www.acuemax.cn/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/Impact-Investing-image-1.jpg 1000w" sizes="(max-width: 300px) 100vw, 300px" /></a></h3> <h2 style="text-align: center;"><strong>Innovations in Impact Investing?</strong></h2> <h3 style="text-align: center;"><strong>Wednesday, November 18th, 2020 @ 5:30pm PST (1.5 hours)</strong></h3> <p style="text-align: center;"><strong><a >REGISTRATION LINK</a></strong></p> <p>Can you really align your values to your personal or business financial goals and will you have to sacrifice performance to do so?

Developed rapport with numerous host nation forces, enhanced capability and capacity within the host nation units, and briefed US Ambassadors. Led a 20 man Marine Raider Team to Afghanistan that mentored, trained, and conducted over 40 combat operations with an Afghan Special Operations Battalion. Bryan also deployed twice to Operation Iraqi Freedom with Marine Infantry and Marine Reconnaissance.</p> <p>Bryan is a Founder and CEO of Helmand Valley Growers Company. HVGC was founded by United States Special Operations Veterans (Marine Raiders). Since its inception, HVGC has been in discussions with some of the cannabis industry*s top researchers and has developed a veteran based protocol to effectively prove the benefits of medical cannabis. HVGC is supported and essentially ran by three Marine Raiders that served following 9-11.</p> <p>As a service disabled veteran owned business, HVGC is intimately aware of the daily challenges that our fellow veteran brothers and sisters face as a result of their time spent on the battlefield. Some of these wounds are not visible to the naked eye.</p> <p>HVGC began its outreach into the veteran community by observing first-hand and listening to the suffering of our veterans. We knew right then that our cause was worthy; and that our mission was defined. As our research progressed, the answer to this crisis became clear: develop alternate medical solutions for those suffering with pain, anxiety, post-traumatic stress, sleep disorders, and most critically, are at significant risk of suicide. We care about those who suffer and believe that medical cannabis is the way of the future to help those in need. The recreational cannabis and branding will be used to assist in accomplishing these goals and ultimately serve as a profit center for HVGC.</p> <p>?</p> <p><strong><a href="http://www.acuemax.cn/wp-content/uploads/2019/08/Pelin-Thorgood-headshot.jpg"><img class="alignleft wp-image-5697" src="http://www.acuemax.cn/wp-content/uploads/2019/08/Pelin-Thorgood-headshot-200x300.jpg" alt="" width="150" height="225" srcset="http://www.acuemax.cn/wp-content/uploads/2019/08/Pelin-Thorgood-headshot-200x300.jpg 200w, http://www.acuemax.cn/wp-content/uploads/2019/08/Pelin-Thorgood-headshot-687x1030.jpg 687w, http://www.acuemax.cn/wp-content/uploads/2019/08/Pelin-Thorgood-headshot-470x705.jpg 470w, http://www.acuemax.cn/wp-content/uploads/2019/08/Pelin-Thorgood-headshot-450x675.jpg 450w, http://www.acuemax.cn/wp-content/uploads/2019/08/Pelin-Thorgood-headshot.jpg 750w" sizes="(max-width: 150px) 100vw, 150px" /></a>Pelin Thorogood, President & Co-founder, <a >Wholistic Research and Education Foundation</a> </strong></p> <p>Pelin Thorogood is a tech executive turned impact entrepreneur who has made a career out of being at the forefront of emerging business trends and disruptive technologies.
