Salim Ismail the founding executive director of Silicon Valley’s Singularity University, co-author of best-selling book Exponential Organizations, former Yahoo executive, and serial startup entrepreneur, who sold his most recent company to Google has recently joined ProSpeakers.com. His mission is to spread innovation culture across the globe. His hit 2016 TedX titled How to fix civilization, which Ismail calls “a nice, niche topic.”. Ismail, who was born in 1965 in Hyderabad, India, is Canadian. He graduated from the University of Waterloo in 1989.
Salim is passionate about Canada and education and has a vision “set Canada up for the leadership role that it should be in,” and connected this to Prime Minister Trudeau’s mission to rebrand Canada from resources to resourcefulness.
“It only requires a mindset shift,” Ismail said, noting a ticking clock. “We’ve become wealthy off resources, but they will be devalued. You have to move to a services-based, entrepreneurship-driven, innovation-driven economy. Canada has about ten years to do that before the rest of the world will leapfrog past us.”
