Tech for good, impact investing and social entrepreneurship speeches from Infoshare 2021
Before we jump into this year’s topics discussed at the Infoshare conference, let’s recap three great speeches on sustainability delivered at Infoshare 2021. The selected speeches were delivered by Fionn Ferreira – an anti-plastic pollution innovator, David Polgar – a pioneering tech ethicist, and Wojciech Mróz – a Licensed Investment Advisor.
Fionn Ferreira on the fight against microplastic
Fionn Ferreira grew up by the sea and enjoyed exploring the wilderness but more often than not he couldn’t experience a beautiful Irish seashore without heaps of garbage. He decided to do something about it and try to bring a positive change to the environment around him. He invented a device that removes microplastics from water using magnetic ferrofluid. In his talk at Infoshare 2021, Fionn argued for playing with science and shared his personal stories of associating separate concepts in unconventional ways that ultimately helped him design a new method to remove microplastic particles from water
David Polgar on the revolution of responsible technology
David Polgar is an expert in technology ethics and improving the information ecosystem. He is the founder of All Tech Is Human, an organization dedicated to the development of responsible technology. The main thrust of his work is that we need a collaborative, multi-stakeholder and multi-disciplinary approach to build a future of technology that is in line with the public interest. In his speech last year, David Polgar explained the role of the technology industry in the process of creating responsible technology, as well as the actors associated with it: technical workers, policymakers, journalists, and the general public. Polgar also introduced the profiles of researchers and activists driving social change.
Wojciech Mróz on impact investing and social entrepreneurship
Wojciech Mróz is an entrepreneur, consultant with 18 years of experience, and a licensed investment advisor. He is Country Co-Director at Ashoka Poland – an international network of social innovators, the 5th most influential NGO according to NGO Advisor worldwide. At Infoshare 2021, Wojciech presented the differences between traditional investing in terms of maximizing return and investing in terms of maximizing impact. He also discussed examples of inspiring impact investments and success stories of several social entrepreneurs.
