Isabella Grandic works with leading companies like Walmart, Wealthsimple and Sidewalk labs to transform their businesses using technology. She has worked on research studies and projects in fields like Machine Learning, Foodtech and 3D printing - and she's only 16! Recently, Isabella has been passionate about transforming housing in Toronto and eventually all other markets. From speaking at IKEA's annual festival to building a recommendation for Toronto's sidewalk labs, she's bringing a new perspective to how we can change the way we live. She speaks at conferences around the world like Web Summit and C2 Montreal and is part of a human accelerator called The Knowledge Society (TKS).
TKS is a 10-month - 3+ year human accelerator that develops young people (13-17) to solve the world’s most important problems by training the knowledge, skills, mindsets, and networks students need to impact billions.
Accelerators like Y Combinator and Techstars are building "unicorn companies" – billion-dollar companies – in less than 10 years. TKS is building "unicorn people", those who will impact billions and change the trajectory of the world at a younger age than most. Our students have keynoted at major conferences all over the world, including Web Summit, SXSW and CES. They’ve earned internships with leading companies like Microsoft, IBM, Rigetti, and XPRIZE as early as 14 years old.
