"I love technology and believe that the Internet is deeply impacting mankind" is the opening statement in our correspodence with Pascal Finette.
Pascal got started on the net before there was a web browser. He founded a couple of technology startups, led eBay’s Platform Solutions Group in Europe, launched a consulting firm helping entrepreneurs with their strategy & operations, invested into early-stage tech startups. He led Mozilla Labs, created Mozilla’s accelerator program WebFWD, headed up Mozilla’s Office of the Chair and invested into social impact organizations around the globe at Google.org.
He also created the non-profit organizations Mentor for Good, POWERUP and The Coaching Fellowship; the GyShiDo (Get Your S%#& Done) movement and publishes the opinionated "The Heretic" newsletter.
Today, Pascal heads up Singularity University’s Startup Lab, where they grow startups which solve the most intractable problems in the world. He frequently speaks and write about the magic which happens at the intersection of entrepreneurship, technology & global impact.
