Science and Ideas Group
Dangers, Opportunities of Financial Maximization
in Technology & Innovation
The talk, by Chris Ategeka, Founder CEO of UCOT, is about the challenges and opportunities at the intersection of technology, humanity, and our planet, with the hope that our conversation will shine a new light on the Unintended Consequences of Technology.
Christopher Ategeka is an award-winning engineer, entrepreneur, and author. He recently published the book, The Unintended Consequences of Technology, which focuses on the challenges and opportunities at the intersection of technology, humanity, and our planet. He is also the founder and general partner at Startup Playbook, a pre-seed fund that supports software startup companies run by women and other entrepreneurs traditionally underrepresented in the Venture Capital Market. Before that, he was the founder and board chair at Health Access Corps, which focuses on strengthening healthcare systems in Africa using local talent to combat the extreme shortage of healthcare services in under-served regions. He accomplished this by building bicycle and motorcycle ambulances to facilitate the emergency transport of patients to health care facilities. He also built mobile clinics by refurbishing abandoned school buses and converting them into "hospitals on wheels" to allow patients access to healthcare services in under-served areas of Africa.
He has won many international honors for his work: Forbes magazine’s “30 Under 30” list, Ashoka Fellow, TED Fellow, World Economic Forum Young Global Leader. Most recently Chris was honored by Chancellor Carol Christ and the UC Berkeley Foundation Board of Trustees with a 2021 Mark Bingham Award for excellence in achievement by a young alumnus in the last 10 years.
