1) Founders Talk

Jeremy Freedman, CEO & Founder of Global Nomadic will give a 15-minute talk followed by Q&A on how he founded the company whilst travelling around the world, growing the company from beaches in Bali to Jungles in Costa Rica. By joining the fledgling digital-nomad community, he became an entrepreneur on the road.

Next will be a series of 5-minute TED-style presentations by pre-selected UCL students. The presentations will be on either of the following topics, and the winners will receive one of the prizes below. You will vote for the winners on the evening.

What does Diversity mean for you in the 21st Century?
