We’re bringing EO members and non-members behind the scenes of 2019 EO Global Leadership Conference Macau (GLC) as we profile the event’s emcee, Pascal Finette. Pascal was a tech entrepreneur before there was even a web browser. He’s a renowned speaker, author, founder and revolutionary who loves working with changemakers who have the desire—and capacity—to make things better.
As co-founder at Radical Ventures and Singularity University’s chair for entrepreneurship and open innovation, Pascal is focused on creating new business models for success and positively embracing disruption. So, it follows that—like many EO members—he believes the problems of the world will only be solved by social entrepreneurs: Individuals tackling age-old challenges with fundamentally new innovations and different perspectives. He invests in these pioneering solutions through his nonprofit organization, Mentor for Good.
Known for his direct, no-nonsense approach to work, he also founded the “GyShiDo” (Get Your S%#& Done) movement and publishes the self-proclaimed opinionated newsletter and blog, The Heretic.
