CEO, founder and editor-in-chief of Forkast News, the leading media organisation that covers blockchain, cryptocurrencies, digital assets, and emerging technologies, Angie Lau is a familiar face to those who watched her on Bloomberg Television as one of its global anchors. The award-winning journalist also gave the TEDx talk “I am not supposed to be here”, the subsequent video of which was seen by more than seven million subscribers. Lau studied at Ryerson University’s School of Journalism in Canada. An avid proponent of mentorship and professional development, she’s an active member of the Asian American Journalists Association, having served as president of the Asia Chapter for two terms.
“My goal is simple,” says Lau. “It’s to empower the next generation to find opportunities in a future that’s already being defined by technology. After all, if you don’t understand the future, you’ll never see your place in it. That was a solemn vow I made to my little boy for his generation and the next.”
