Matthews is the founder and CEO of Uncharted Power, an award-winning technology company that provides clean, safe, and low-cost power and data services.

Disrupting the pink aisle with STEM-focused toys for girls.
Debbie Sterling is an engineer, entrepreneur, and one of the leaders in the movement toward getting girls interested in science, technology, engineering, and math. She is the founder and CEO of GoldieBlox, an award-winning company on a mission to "disrupt the pink aisle" with toys, games, and media focused on inspiring the next generation of female engineers. Sterling’s disruption of the toy industry has ignited a national conversation about breaking gender stereotypes in retail – inspiring groups to think outside the box, challenge the status quo, and achieve audacious goals.
Founder and President of Copia
Embracing technology to solve the “world's dumbest problem” – world hunger.
Komal Ahmad believes hunger isn’t a scarcity problem; it’s a logistics problem. As founder and president of Copia, she has leveraged technology to solve the complex logistics associated with the redistribution of excess food to nonprofits in need – successfully diverting more than 3.5M pounds of food from landfill to feed more than 4 million people. An immigrant and sole female founder, she uses her unlikely story of working to solve global hunger to inspire groups to embrace a culture of innovation and creativity, make unsolvable problems solvable, see the beauty in failure, and uncover the untapped potential within all of us.

Enhancing human performance through smart and empathetic technologies.
An advocate for the kind of technology that learns more about us as we use it, Dr. Poppy Crum works to bridge the gap between rapidly evolving technology and insightful, more effective human interaction. As Chief Scientist at Dolby Laboratories, she builds technologies that power industry innovation and best leverage human physiology to enhance our experiences and the ways we interact with our world. Her fascinating, fast-paced presentations unlock the ways new and empathetic technologies will continue to shape us as humans and rapidly change how we live—impacting everything from healthcare and communication, to work and relationships.
Co-Founder and CEO, Embrace
Thinking differently to solve global problems and save infant lives.
