#37 - Can Technology Save Us? Ela Madej on Capitalism, Artificial Intelligence, and the Race to Feed 10 Billion - Eat For The Planet with Nil Zacharias

Ela Madej is a successful tech entrepreneur and a founding partner of Fifty Years, a venture capital firm focused on working with companies combining purpose and profit to solve some of the world’s biggest problems. In this interview, we discuss how Ela got interested in purpose-driven technology and business. She also shares her thoughts on the problems with our current economic system and why capitalism needs to evolve if we want to prepare for a future that will be negatively impacted by climate change. We even get into how artificial intelligence will fundamentally change the business world and the importance of building values into technology and business to avoid potential disasters. Thanks to her interest in how our actions impact the world around us, Ela went vegan a few years ago and she shares her thoughts on how technology can play a key role in helping us fix the food system and feed 10 billion people by the year 2050. This is one of the most unique and multifaceted interviews I have done to date and I’m so excited to be able to share Ela’s wisdom and foresight with you.
