Join us to hear our remarkable speaker’s journey…

Anousheh Ansari, CEO of the XPRIZE Foundation, the world’s leader in designing and operating incentive competitions to solve humanity’s greatest challenges.  Ansari, along with her family, sponsored the organization’s first competition, the Ansari XPRISE, a $10 million competition that ignited a new era for commercial spaceflight.  Since then, she has served on XPRISE’s Board of Directors.

Prior to being named CEO of XPRIZE, Ansari served as the CEO of Prodea Systems, a leading Internet of Things (IoT) technology firm she co-founded in 2006 and continues to serve as the executive chairwoman.  She captured headlines around the world when she embarked upon an 11-day space expedition, accomplishing her childhood dream of becoming the first female private space explorer, first astronaut of Iranian decent, first Muslim woman in space, and fourth private explorer to visit space.

Ansari also co-founded The Billion Dollar Fund for Women, announced earlier this month at the Tri Hita Karana (THK) Forum on Sustainable Development in Bali, Indonesia, with a goal of investing $1 billion in women-founded companies by 2020.

Anousheh will share here personal experiences on her rise to the top!
