The world is changing dramatically, and it’s been challenging to keep up with all the shifts across business, technology, and society as a whole. Thankfully, Silicon Valley-based executive and author Arnobio Morelix has been keeping a close eye on these trends and building tools for founders and technology creators to navigate them in the decades to come.

We are pleased to welcome Morelix as the new senior advisor for the Global Entrepreneurship Network. Before today, we’ve had the pleasure of working alongside Morelix in his role as Chief Innovation Officer at Startup Genome, as well hosting him in our events for years before, in his previous role at the Kauffman Foundation. GEN and Startup Genome have co-produced the influential Global Startup Ecosystem Report for the past years.

“Arnobio is one of the foremost thinkers about how technology is shaping our society,” said Jonathan Ortmans, president and founder of the Global Entrepreneurship Network. “As a global thought leader and executive, he has advised CEOs, founders, and government leaders about the fundamental shifts our society is going through. We are thrilled to welcome Arnobio to Global Entrepreneurship Network’s select group of senior advisors.”

Working at the intersection of technology, economics, and policy, Morelix also serves roles as Chief Data Scientist at Inc. Magazine and as a contributing data science expert with Stanford University’s Latino Entrepreneurship Initiative. His work and analysis have been featured widely in publications including the New York Times, The Economist, the Wall Street Journal, among others. Additionally, he's been a frequent public speaker at major places and events including South By Southwest, the Facebook Headquarters, the Federal Reserve Bank, and the OECD -- as well as our own Global Entrepreneurship Congress.
