What Others Say

Shivvy exhibits a remarkable capacity to make complex technological concepts easy to understand; to analyze the social and economic impacts of new technologies and to uncouple the relevant from the mere buzz. It doesn’t hurt that she’s also a connector, bringing together people, companies and ideas across the broader field of digital technology.
