Rhetoriq podcast co-hosted by Arunkumar Krishnakumar, Efi Pylarinou, Theodora Lau and Bradley Leimer brings purposeful innovation to spotlight. Its where impact meets innovation. We speak to startup founders, investors, industry players, thought leaders and policy makers in the innovation ecosystem and get their views. While there have been a lot discussed about innovation in the western world, we believe that impact at scale can be achieved in the emerging markets. In recent times we have seen several leap frog moments across the emerging world. What Alibaba and Tencent have achieved in China, PayTM in India and MPesa in Africa are great examples of impactful stories. We talk to many emerging market players and highlight their efforts to create such leap frog moments. The first season of the podcast is hosted by Arun Krishnakumar who is a VC in London, and Efi Pylarinou a Fintech Influencer based out of Switzerland. The focus for Season 1 of the podcast is Blockchain and Financial Inclusion. Season 2, titled "Shades of Grey", is co-hosted by Arun, Theodora Lau and Bradley Leimer. The focus for this season is innovation and Longevity. We believe there are many innovation stories that are creating huge impact in people's life across the world. We identify these stories and talk to them about their journeys, successes and challenges they have had to overcome. In providing a stage for these entrepreneurs, thought leaders and innovators, we hope to inspire a generation looking to effect positive change. Rhetoriq is your go-to place if you are looking for stories of innovation with purpose.
