CEO and Founder, CinqC
After more than 25 years in global media, working with organisations including Future Publishing, Ziff-Davis and The International New York Times, Kristen Davis has witnessed the amazing opportunities – and also the deep disruption – that technology has brought to our businesses, society, culture, planet and institutions.
In 2016, she created CinqC to apply the experience, insight, resilience and agility she has gathered, using technology to advance media to sectors in both the private and public domain. Today, she supports start-ups, large organizations, innovation labs and incubators around the globe seeking to use technology to positively evolve and impact our ever-changing world through new services, products, regulations and policies.
Ms. Davis is proud to be a mentor and coach at the Katapult Accelerator in Oslo, and she regularly works with companies and accelerators in Estonia, the most digitally advanced democracy on Earth.
She is also an external assessor for the Google Digital News Innovation Fund, and chairwoman of the U.S. board of Apopo, an N.G.O. that trains rats to save lives by detecting landmines and tuberculosis.
