Futurist | AI and Future of Work Expert
On a mission to bridge the gap between young entrepreneurs and the digital future, Sinead Bovell strives to create conversations that will lead towards a progressive, informed, and thriving new era. She is a futurist and the founder of WAYE, an organization that helps prepare the next generation of business leaders for a world radically transformed by technology, focusing on non-traditional and minority markets. Bovell is a five-time United Nations speaker, an experienced host, and is certified in AI ethics from MIT.
In 2018, Bovell founded WAYE (Weekly Advice for Young Entrepreneurs), which was shortly followed by the launch of WAYE Talks — a series of monthly events where she educates young entrepreneurs on the intersection of the latest trends in business and technology. To date, she has educated over 10,000 young entrepreneurs on the future of technology and has spoken at world renowned institutions, including the United Nations, the US Chamber of Commerce, and Cornell University on the intersection of business, technology, and the future.
Bovell has served as a tech contributor for publications such as Vogue, The Star, and The Globe and Mail, and was recently recognized by WIRED for her work in bringing “new faces to the table in tech.” She currently produces a YouTube series for WIRED exploring how tech is changing our world.
Prior to founding WAYE, Bovell received her MBA from the University of Toronto and worked as a management consultant for A.T. Kearney.
