#btconf Düsseldorf, Germany 27 - 29 Apr 2020

Sacha Judd

Sacha runs the Hoku Group, a family office combining private investments, early-stage tech ventures and a non-profit foundation. She is the co-host of Refactor (a series of events around diversity in technology), and Flounders’ Club (a network for early-stage company founders). She speaks at conferences and in-house events on startups, capital raising, diversity & inclusion in the tech sector, and how fans will transform the world.

I Still Believe in Heroes

We find ourselves at a crossroads, where our online social infrastructure is failing us. Our public spaces are awash with misinformation, harassment, and hate speech, while the private solutions we jury-rig present their own set of challenges.

Using the Marvel Cinematic Universe as a mirror for the successes and failures of our tech world, Sacha will look at the way communities have formed in the Marvel fandom – the history and the politics, the creativity and the gatekeeping – and what this might teach us about what we need to do differently going forward and the heroes we need right now.
