Perlin @ Harvard University
Sharing our vision with the World Economic Forum Young Global Leaders at Harvard
As a Young Global Leader appointed under the World Economic Forum (WEF), our Project Lead Dorjee was invited to join a recent intensive course on Global Leadership & Public Policy for the 21st Century, run by Harvard University. Other attendees included a diverse field of influential and accomplished YGL members from a broad spectrum of industries and high-profile social impact organisations.
The course was designed to empower the WEF’s select Young Global Leaders as thought-leaders and effective agents of change, in order to more effectively address some of the world’s most pressing problems. Incorporating principles of public policy, corporate governance, macroeconomics and effective leadership — the course integrated theory with practice to advance the knowledge and skills of attendees as global influencers and change-makers.
The course subject matter was perfectly aligned with Perlin’s overarching vision to drive positive economic, social and technological disruption, using our distributed ledger Wavelet as a powerful platform for innovation. With compelling use-case pilots already in the works, encompassing commodity traceability, decentralized cloud computing, AI using privacy-preserving techniques, and trade finance (only the start) — Perlin remains committed to greater democratization of access and financial inclusion for communities around the world.
Besides absorbing the course material and networking with other influential attendees, Dorjee took the time to share Perlin’s vision for bringing about positive change using the compelling properties and potential of distributed ledger technology across every conceivable sector (commercial, social and environmental). Not wasting time, Dorjee also took the chance to meet with many of our existing and prospective stakeholders in the US while he was there.
