Founder’s Note
“ Withholding half the world population from access to information and resources; denying them a platform to share their perspectives and ideas; denying them an opportunity to create deep tech ventures, will be detrimental to an inclusive society that is empowered by technology. Industry 5.0, is the future of the world Someone should have realised the lack of representation of women in education and technology; someone should have realised the impact of climate change. Those ‘someones’ should have decided to act on these problems by building an ecosystem of like-minded stakeholders It just took someone and a community to lead us to where we are today as a modern society. ‘m one of those many ‘someones’ who could envision that women and other representational minorities and industry 5.0 will lead us into the future.”
