Tom Chi's Prifile
Tom Chi is a business leader and innovator who started out doing astrophysical research at 15 , and whose business pedigree includes executive roles at Yahoo, being a key influencer in the design of Microsoft Outlook, and shaping Google X and Google Glass. When working at Google on the self-driving car, he started asking himself questions about why he was creating things that only the few percent could afford. “Who’s going to do anything for the two billion people living on less than $2 a day?” he wondered. Tom thinks big, universally big, and his latest ventures deal in how we can rapidly prototype collaboratively, to pioneer solutions to some of the world’s biggest problems. He focuses on the ways we need to think together to get to a sustainable planet. He is currently the founder of Rapid Prototyping LLC, an innovation consultancy that works with some of the biggest names in the world and combines learning, empathy and experimentation skills to increase the value of innovations to end users – ultimately, to all of us.
