‘Business as a Force for Good’ Alumni event on April 11, 2019

Last October INSEAD launched The Campaign for INSEAD: a Force for Good. Grounded in the school’s distinct values, vision and ventures, the Campaign strives to fortify INSEAD’s academic excellence, drive breakthrough innovation and transform communities and organisations on a global scale. Together with the alumni community, INSEAD is commited to developing the next generation of business leaders who will change the world for the better.

* Boyan Slat (27 July 1994) is a Dutch inventor and entrepreneur who creates technological solutions to global problems. He is the founder and CEO of The Ocean Cleanup; a Dutch foundation which develops advanced systems to rid world’s oceans of plastic. Age 18, Boyan devised a concept which utilises the natural oceanic forces to passively catch and concentrate ocean plastic, through which the theoretical cleanup time could be reduced from millennia to mere years. In February 2013 he dropped out of his Aerospace Engineering study at TU Delft to start The Ocean Cleanup. After 4 years of reconnaissance expeditions, testing and many design iterations, on September 8 2018 the world’s first ocean cleanup system was launched from San Francisco, soon after followed by deployment inside the Great Pacific Garbage Patch.
