Märtha Rehnberg is a climate freak by heart, political economist by training, entrepreneur and policy-advocate by practice. She is the Co-Founder of Copenhagen-based think tank DareDisrupt, specialized in a responsible disruption and exponential technologies. Märtha’s drive lies in creating better visions for the future. For her, it’s not about a crystal ball, or about predicting the future. It is rather about understanding how our dreams and visions about the future have a performative effect in the present. If our dreams are big enough and vocalized smart enough they attract attention, talent, capital and eventually – they self-actualize.
In her talks, Märtha demonstrates how our so called “technological intuition” is at the center of creating powerful visions. With vantage point in the new technologies of this decade, and the radical business models they ignite, she dares you to lean into the future with curiosity, courage and a mindset of action. Cause if we do this moment in time right – we’re all to get the promotions of our lives.
