Thimo V. Schmitt-Lord


Executive Director
Bayer Foundations

My special interest areas are frontier science and impact innovations.

I am passionate about the creation of social fiction and societal impact by applying purpose-driven tech innovations to the world’s biggest challenges around health and food.

I will be speaking about the beauty of impact – how tech pioneers apply innovations to solve humanity’s grand challenges in health and the food crisis to create better life for the rising billions in need. Just like in my favorite quote:“… if you want to be a billionaire, you have to solve a billions people’s problems”.
