Personally an artist, aspiring impact investor, and fascinated by the ability of innovation and disruptive thinking to create big changes. Uma is a strong believer that ideas and behaviors spread like viruses, as outlined in “The Tipping Point” by Malcolm Gladwell. Gladwell identifies three types of people that are crucial for the success of any social epidemic: connectors, who bring people together; mavens, who are the information specialists; and salesmen, who are the persuaders. Uma aims to live every day as one of these three individuals and spread inspiring ideas with the power to change attitudes and ultimately the world.
