Tech to the Rescue?

What the Technology and Innovation Ecosystem Can Bring to Mitigate the Current Crisis


The world is in the midst of a unique crisis with what will almost certainly prove to have long-term social, economic and political ramifications. However, there seems to be a silver lining to this cloud: the private sector, including the technology and innovation ecosystem, seems to be voluntarily mobilizing in order to mitigate the crisis. The panel discussed what role the technology ecosystem can play from an academic, corporate and startup perspective.

Featured Panelists:
Linus Dahlander, Professor and Lufthansa Group Chair in Innovation, ESMT;
Joann Halpern, Director, Hasso Plattner Institute New York;
Shaun Stewart, CEO, Newlab;
and Gülsah Wilke, Head of Portfolio, Operations and Business Development, Axel Springer SE; Young Leader Alumna (2019).
