She’s worked in the field of design and creativity across multiple tech companies and design agencies, and is also a facilitator and speaker on topics of mindfulness and integration. Ying is native to mainland China and has traveled to 30 countries, always affirmed by people's relationship with the environment they live in—their creativity and spirituality in everyday life. At a young age she had envisioned a world without borders, and is constantly inspired by the next generation of global citizens and their ability to bring about that future.
Angela Ni is an engagement manager at Strategy&, the strategy consulting team at PwC. Angela has dedicated her career to working with businesses, foundations, and public entities to improving health and healthcare systems in the U.S. and abroad. From 2010-2011, Angela conducted a Fulbright Fellowship in Yunnan, China to study rural water and sanitation infrastructure. Her research focused on the use of innovative wastewater management technologies from a public health lens. Angela later went on to work in public affairs in Beijing and Hong Kong. This included developing an award-winning NGO engagement strategy for a major environmental health disaster, and forming an expert network on aging and long-term care insurance across five East Asian markets. Angela is fluent in Mandarin and has an MPH in health policy and management from the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health.
Matt Conger has worked in both management consulting and private equity before founding Cadence Translate. He began his career at Bain & Company in New York and then worked at the energy private equity firm Hudson Capital Management as a Vice President. His undergraduate education is from Wharton and he has a master’s degree in engineering from Stanford. Having spent seven years of his career focused on due diligence, he founded Cadence because he saw how transformative one’s understanding of a market can be from information that lies just beyond the language barrier.
