MindBridge Partners Speaks on International Relations, the Evolution of Work, and Edtech Startups
MindBridge Partners has been all over the map this past week, sharing their latest insights in strategy, technology, and innovation.
Partner and CEO Esin Sile, Ph.D. was a panelist at the 34th Annual Conference on U.S.-Turkish Relations in Washington, DC. Given the increased role that education and edtech has been playing between the two economies, the panel offered a big-picture view of investment in the sector. Dr. Sile presented the trends with greatest investment potential in edtech and discussed the positive impact of tech disruptions on education outcomes.
Partner and author Katy Tynan presented a talk on the Evolution of Work at the CEO Club of Boston. Technology is a clear player in shifting the way we learn and work, but Katy highlighted human behavior as an even bigger driving force in shaping the workplace of the future. See the video at the MindBridge website. Spoiler: Paper airplanes are involved.
Katy Tynan and MindBridge Senior Advisor Can Erbil were featured in Computerworld and the Harvard Business Review. They contributed their expertise around those who work in technology and drive innovation—tech professionals and managers. Articles highlighted key attributes of these professionals that would have a big impact on the greater economy.
MindBridge partner and co-founder Hakan Satiroglu, along with Dr. Esin Sile, joined over 100 startups and 1,500 attendees at Startup Istanbul 2015. It’s where leading startups, internet companies, business angels, and venture capitalists from across Asia and Europe gather to network and share their latest developments. Hakan and Dr. Sile participated to discuss the role and importance of innovation and entrepreneurship in economic development, and how to create efficient ecosystems to foster innovative growth.
