About the speakers



Kevin Monserrat,

Before founding Consilience Ventures, he was Head of Microsoft’s Ecosystem of Scale Up in London, responsible for investing about US$100 million per annum and where he spent many years helping companies to launch, grow and fund their technology businesses.

Paul Griffiths,

Entrepreneurial executive with a background of supporting fast-growth companies. I blend financial & commercial experience with companies both large and small with hands-on general management. The fast-moving work alongside serial entrepreneurs is matched by blue chip experience, both providing plenty of demanding challenges. On the not-for-profit side, this commercial background has been used effectively to set up and run a successful registered UK charity.


Elin Hauge

I am an experienced leader and business advisor with strong business acumen across industries. One of my key strengths is to connect dots and spot new business opportunities across conventional domains. People tell me I have a rare combination of strong empathy and human understanding on one hand and a fighter’s mindset and ability to execute on the other hand. I bring lots of energy, combined with the ability to truly listen, observe, and reflect. I truly believe in the power of data-driven technologies. Technologies like artificial intelligence, the internet of things, virtual reality, and blockchain will play important roles in the sustainable future of societies and businesses. Examples may be reducing the need to travel, making buildings more sustainable, securing food production, and developing smarter and healthier cities for people to live in. At the same time, we need to understand that digital is not necessarily sustainable, neither from a climate, environment, economic, social, or human perspective. My role as advisor and speaker is to help leaders navigate in the complex landscape of data-driven technologies, sustainability, and responsibility.

I am an active angel investor and board advisor for early-stage AI companies. I work with my portfolio of companies across the med-tech, business services and consumer sectors. I was the founding shareholder of Aurora, which became the market leader in AI solutions for the air sector, before a successful exit.


I am an experienced business consultant. My company, WIT Consultancy, was a respected boutique that had the privilege to lead some of the most complex and challenging global change programs in the Telecoms, Technology and Banking sectors.
