Fadi Al Qassar: Digital Resilience As a Tool to Reduce Global Poverty

Fadi: Great to be here, Spiffy, thanks for having me! The digital divide, between people who have access and skills to use technology and those who do not, has increased. This is amplifying challenges of poverty, disconnection, and access to resources. Venture 2 Impact works to increase access to technology and digital resilience in order to reduce global poverty. We do this by using human-centered design and design thinking to create dynamic and adaptive approaches to complex challenges. We connect global communities to skilled, professional volunteers, and leverage untapped skills to create a lasting impact.

Subajini Jayasekaran: Virtual Travel Through the Eyes of Locals
Suba: Nyaanum is a digital content company focused on exploration, culture, and virtual travel. What makes Nyaanum unique is that our content is created and curated by the people who live in the places we visit—as opposed to professional photographers or foreign travelers. We create the space for communities to tell their own stories about their homes—what makes this place special to them—but also stories that highlight what is shared across cultures. There is a strong focus on empowering less heard, more marginalized voices, bringing a diversity of perspective and experience. We want to become the premier company to experience the world virtually in an inclusive and respectful way by and for everyone on the planet.
