Chair, Faculty of Global Grand Challenges
Riding The Digital Revolution Towards A More Sustainable Future
Nathaniel Calhoun specializes in the ethical and strategic implications of exponential technologies. For the last two decades, he’s moved between centers of executive decision making (like Silicon Valley) and the world’s most challenging environments (like post-conflict nations or regions destabilized by food insecurity). He helps guide Singularity University’s approach to impact as a Co-Chair of its Global Grand Challenge Faculty.
Nathaniel consults with governments, development banks and international organizations to design and foster innovations (and policy) that change how marketplaces work.
He co-founded Code Innovation in 2009, which now owns and operates the largest digital platform for women’s savings groups in the world. This work has been supported by UNICEF, the Gates Foundation, the British Government and a variety of private donors.
