Tech entrepreneurs are a fast-growing section of the INSEAD community and there are now plenty of examples of exits from our alumni. But how often do you meet up, share perspectives and hear from these successful tech entrepreneurs?

There will be plenty of opportunity for networking following a panel discussion including:

Lee Cowles (MBA 99J), Managing Director at Nutmeg. Lee has spent more than a decade growing successful consumer-facing tech businesses such as Betfair and Blurb before joining Nutmeg.

Taavet Hinrikus (MBA 10D), CEO and co-founder of Transferwise. Taavet was the first employee of Skype in 2003. He founded Transferwise, which has become one of the leading companies globally in international money transfer, after INSEAD.

Stephane Kurgan (MBA 96J), COO at Stephane was instrumental in leading the company to IPO and its subsequent sale to Activision/Blizzard for $5.9bn.

Cameron Stevens (MBA 06J), Founder and CEO of Prodigy Finance. Cameron founded Prodigy after INSEAD and has grown it to the largest provider of international postgraduate loans.

Azmat Yusuf (MBA 09J), CEO and founder of Citymapper. Azmat founded Citymapper in 2011 since when it has become one of the world’s leading urban transport apps.
