US-ATMC (EE402A) Special Seminar

Topic: 
Innovation Salon: The On-Demand Economy: Unlocking Value for Consumers and Companies
Abstract / Description: 

The on-demand economy, exemplified by companies like Lyft, Airbnb, TaskRabbit and more, helps consumers (providers) find value in assets they already have – cars, homes, skills, insights. Data from TaskRabbit indicates an opportunity for Taskers to earn up to $150K per year by joining the service as a provider. Similarly, for consumers of on-demand services, the on-demand economy helps lower frictions or barriers to services, be it transportation or lodging or assembly of furniture.

For businesses, on-demand economies provide new opportunities to "upskill" people and also necessitate new ways of thinking about traditional assets, such as the car.

In this panel discussion, we will learn from those at the frontlines of this economy, on how the on-demand economy has impacted the US and how it can impact Japan.

 

Presented by Japan Society of Northern California and the US-Asia Technology Management Center

Date and Time: 
Friday, May 20, 2016 - 5:30pm to 9:00pm
Venue:

Panel Discussion - What Asia Means for Silicon Valley Entrepreneurs
Abstract / Description: 

Our panel of three Stanford alumni provide diverse perspectives into the ways in which Asian economies will play a part in the future of Silicon Valley: as important markets, as sources of new businesses for the U.S., and as sources of leaders for the next generation of innovation. Will increasing ease of communications and data transfer lead to more internationally distributed startups? What are the leadership challenges for Asians and Asian Americans in the future of the Valley? How can Silicon Valley keep up, as Asia economies become more robust in generating globally focused startups?

US-ATMC (EE402T) Seminar

Topic: 
New Trends in Social Entrepreneurship in India: The Bombay Hemp Company, Ltd. (BOHECO)
Abstract / Description: 

"New Trends in Social Entrepreneurship in India: The Bombay Hemp Company, Ltd. (BOHECO)"

Panel Discussion:

  • Sanvar Oberoi, Director of Finance & Digital Technology, Bombay Hemp Company
  • Radhika Shah, Co-President, Stanford Angels and Entrepreneurs and Advisor, Sustainable Development Goals Philanthropy Platform

One of the outcomes of the United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development (Rio+20) in 2012, was a set of 17 Sustainable Development Goals, which were officially signed by the UN heads of state and high representatives on September 27, 2015. The SDG Philanthropy Platform (sdgfunders.org), launched by the UN Development Program, Foundation Center, and the Rockefeller Philanthropy Advisors, brings hundreds of foundations and philanthropists across many countries to create new partnerships to increase funding and create programs that will have greater, and more sustainable, impact on people's lives. Of course, the achievement of the SDGs itself must reflect sustainable processes, and so Ms. Shah will also discuss new platforms of social entrepreneurship in India, e.g. "Fourth Sector" for-benefit corporations.

One example of a company targeting an SDG is the Bombay Hemp Co., Ltd. (BOHECO), India's first Industrial Hemp and Medicinal Cannabis company. BOHECO aims to reform the agriculture industry and uplift socio-economic standards of local farmers in India. They work with local industry and farmers to manufacture and innovate agro-products for pharmaceutical, construction, energy, paper, food, textile, lubricants, automobile, oil and cordage industries from the industrial hemp crop and now are working to use this model pan-India for poverty alleviation, empowerment, and rural development.

India has long been a recipient of philanthropic approaches and also for-profit companies that target "bottom of the pyramid" markets; this session will provide insights into the most recent dynamics and regulatory system refinements in India that may serve as a model across various developing economies.
