I have published several books and am a frequent speaker around the globe on the subjects related to innovation policy, entrepreneurship, digital transformation, reputation risk, alternative investment, future of education and so forth.I was nominated to be a Young Global Leader by the World Economic Forum at Davos in 2016 and also honored to become a Yale World Fellow under Yale University's former president Levin's legacy in 2013. I am open to new speech, research and advisory engagements on a select basis.
