Karla brings with her a wealth of experience, and an extensive global network from her years in Investment Banking, Early Stage Commercialization, and Business Development. Her expertise with traditional institutions, and her strategic understanding of emerging technology (i.e. blockchain, artificial intelligence etc.), enables her to bridge the gap between both schools of thought – using technology as a platform to address some of the most pressing social issues of today. Her most recent involvements include the induction into the Global Blockchain Business Council (GBBC), the Silicon Valley Blockchain Society (SVBS), and the World Economic Forum (WEF). She is currently an industry mentor at RMIT University in International Studies and Economics.
