Forum brings together new economy catalysts

Chennai: Michael R Bloomberg, founder of Bloomberg LP and Bloomberg Philanthropies and three-term Mayor of New York City, introduced the inaugural class of Bloomberg New Economy Catalysts: a new global community of public and private sector innovators and entrepreneurs accelerating solutions to today’s greatest problems.

“The selected catalysts are creating true impact at the cutting edge of technology and policy — across borders, in emerging economies and beyond — to build a more equitable and sustainable global future,” a statement said.

“The catalysts are a group of talented entrepreneurs, scientists, policymakers and other leaders taking on pressing global challenges,” said Bloomberg.

“Many of them are from countries that are having an increasingly big impact on the world economy. And I know our forum will benefit from their contributions.”
