Inbox: World Economic Forum spots Kiwi

Kiwi entrepreneur Mitchell Pham has been selected as World Economic Forum (WEF) Young Global Leader.
He says that when he fled Vietnam as young refugee, he didn’t expect to one day gain this prestigious annual award.
Pham is co-founder and director of technology group AUGEN, and the international development director for the group’s AugenASIA and AugenHEALTH/NGO divisions. He’s also board member of Refugee Services Aotearoa, member of the Action Asia Advisory Group of the Asia New Zealand Foundation, and an Asia 21 fellow and associate fellow of the Asia Society.
The WEF’s Global Young Leaders must be under the age of 40, have record of extraordinary achievement in leadership roles and have demonstrated their commitment to society.
The award also recognises recipients’ potential to shape the future of the world through inspiring leadership. M
