Keynote: Connecting Asian Origin
Aravinth was born in a beautiful coastal town in Sri Lanka – The pearl of Indian Ocean. His life journey as a teenager, took diverse and rugged trips through numerous cultures and countries, after fleeing from his hometown during the peak of the civil war.
During that journey, his curiosity and the creativity empowered him to earn an Electronics Engineering degree and a Media Art degree. He was struck by an opportunity to pursue his research & professional career, therefore he landed in Germany – The Land of Opportunities.
He is currently Head of International Partnerships at MotionLab Berlin, an innovation hub for 20+ hardware startups and Head Of Embedded Systems Engineering at Next Big Thing AG, an IoT company builder of Europe. In the last 7 years, he has worked with 5 hardware startups in Berlin, where he played a vital role in taking the projects from idea to the production.
The biggest learning that he attained in his life journey is that “The Network is The Net Worth”. He is a passionate community builder and curates several communities for innovation, science, education, media art and sustainability.
However, he never forgets his origin. In the last years, he has established an agriculture startup, a sustainability association and a community center in Southeast Asia.
This is perfect keynote to attend, if you want to hear his story about moving to Germany from Asia to be successful and still contribute back to the people of Asia.
