#rolemodels is a series of conversations with people who inspire us.
#rolemodels is created by Isa Sonnenfeld of Google and David Noël of SoundCloud.
In Edition Thirteen, Isa Sonnenfeld will host a conversation with our guest Obi Felten.
Obi leads early stage projects at X, the team behind self-driving cars and Project Loon. As director of X Foundry, she is responsible for getting early stage X projects from the lab into the real world (or ensuring they fail fast). Previously she was director of consumer marketing for Google EMEA. Before Google, Obi launched the e-commerce business of a major UK retailer, worked as a strategy consultant and led eToys.com‘s (unsuccessful) expansion to Germany during the first dotcom boom.
In this far-reaching conversation, Isa and Obi will discuss her career path, important choices she’s made along the way, and advice she’d share with her past self and the audience.
The event is free.
