Power Couples: Love & Impact
It’s hard to change the world all on your own. But when you find the right partner, anything is possible. This conversation features a group of speakers who have dedicated their careers to making the world a better place – by finding each other and having real impact together.
The power couples in this conversation with Lisa Witter, co-founder and Executive Chairman of Apolitical, are: Saskia Bruysten, Co-Founder of Yunus Social Business; Coen van Oostrom, founder of EDGE; Ruma Bose, the Chief Growth Officer of Clearco; and Matthew Bishop, author and innovator, currently a visiting fellow at the Brookings Institute and London School of Economics.
