Yvonne combines her background in innovation processes and corporate sustainability to coach startups and increase the societal impact HighTechXL makes through its ventures and in direct ecosystem development. Yvonne is an Unleash UN SDG ambassador, mostly dedicated to making businesses “future fit” and the economy work for society. Part of her role is leveraging the magic of diverse teams and complex technologies.
