Subi Chaturvedi

Adjunct Professor, Business Policy, Strategy & Entrepreneurship
Personal Website

I am a passionate advocate of responsible and inclusive innovation. Passionate about building ecosystems that foster sustainable and equitable innovation for the benefit of themasses, the very last mile or Antodaya. Using technology for good, with nearly two decades of industry experience, I build bridges between different stakeholders to ensure boundless innovation with consumer interest at heart.


Innovation can be sustainable only if it is focused on the end user. The time of pushing policies or innovation onto people is over. I apply this principle in all walks of life. I am passionate about building bridges and bridging gaps, whether it is bridging the social digital divide through proliferation of technology or bridging the gaps between passionate innovators and investors to create facilitative and nurturing ecosystems. From my experience, most of the problems pertaining to industry issues, regulations and perceptions can be solved through effective communication and effective decision making. I am a proven storyteller, who can start conversations, debate with the best and speak with purpose.

In order to bridge gaps and lead dialogues for change, I have previously been on the board of UKIBC (Digital Economy / Banking & Finance/ Fintech), United Nations-IGF (MAG) appointed by the UN Secretary General on Internet Governance and on the board of NETMundial, global governments meeting hosted by Brazil on the future of Internet Governance with presence of top leadership from over 193 countries. These were some of the biggest forums in the world and some of the most important conversations that have been seen as tipping points and corner stones for the future of the internet. I intend to continue to hold such forums and conversations at a global level, where the world can come together to discuss, deliberate, and take action.

In my 16 years as a corporate affairs, policy and communications professional, I have supported businesses by communicating their value through strategic communication, partnerships, targeted B2B, B2C and B2G campaigns, implemented campaigns to drive user growth & engagement, complimented & added to existing storytelling efforts & new geographies by using global and locally-relevant data points, colleague and customer stories and insights to generate positive stories & sentiment, and broken down barriers to growth through relentless advocacy and outreach.
