Huy Nguyen Trieu
Since graduating from MIT, Huy Nguyen Trieu started off as an entrepreneur - CEO of a VC-funded startup in New York - and then transitioned to the world of finance. After 10 years, he has climbed to the managing director level at an international bank, giving him a good view into how banks work and how investors think, which have positioned him well for thought leadership in the fintech sphere. He plays the role of both influencer and mentor, and he dedicates a lot of time 'off the clock' to helping the industry grow and expand via his blog, Disruptive Finance. He sits on the Fintech advisory board of the World Economic Forum, and on the advisory boards of Fintech HK, Trusting Social and Fintech Connect.
As Resident Expert, Huy is happy to mentor students, and in particular engineers and techies who need advice in business, marketing or fundraising - having been himself an engineer seriously lacking these competences. In addition, he has extensive knowledge of banks, insurers, asset managers and pension funds thanks to his interactions with these organisations at senior level. He is a graduate of MIT (US), Ecole Polytechnique (France) and Ecole des Ponts et Chaussees (France).
