As a “transformer”, Reza Ghiabi talked at the Liechtenstein-based Think- and Action-Tank THE HUS.institute on September 1st, 2018.
For the last two years, the Liechtenstein-based Think- and Action-Tank THE HUS.institute intensively engages with the consequences of the transition to the Digital Modern Era, which marks a turning point for humanity. On 1st September, the collective held THE HUS.day 2018 in Vaduz to inspire conversations through speeches and a workshop. The event formed around the matter of sustainability and potential in the Digital Modern. With speakers like Iranian innovator Reza Ghiabi and Marc Buckley, the Germany-based climate and sustainability expert, the gathering was internationally listed.
“Dedicating my carrier to help innovation and startup culture grow in Iran, I found myself working and living in the middle of three absolutely uncertain and unknown areas, which I believe also offers a world of opportunities. On a daily basis, I have to deal with the uncertainty of the digital modern world, combined with the unknown cloud of startup works and chaotic trends of Iran’s economy”. Reza pointed out that radical openness is what, in his experience, converts the unknown into opportunities. He spoke to the audience about the history of Iran over the past fifty years and how the most recent developments have hit the country. One of the takeaways from his speech was definitely an insight into the innovative culture of Iran and how a young entrepreneur manages innovation and embraces “the unknown”.Reza Ghiabi — Embracing the unknown
