Anousheh is a serial entrepreneur and co-founder and chairman of Prodea Systems. Prior to founding Prodea Systems, Anousheh served as co-founder, CEO and chairman of Telecom Technologies, Inc. She currently works to enable social entrepreneurs to bring about radical change globally, with organizations such as X Prize, ASHOKA and the PARSA Community Foundation.

After starting out as an attorney with King & Spalding in Atlanta, Sohn spent seven years as an executive with Pangea3, the company that pioneered legal managed services and that Thomson Reuters acquired in 2010. Last year, when Thomson Reuters sold Pangea3 to global Big Four professional services firm Ernst & Young, Sohn moved to EY Law, where he led its global innovation and technology initiatives.

Ed is a veteran managed services executive and recently joined Factor, the managed services company that spun off last year from legal services company Axiom, where he serves as its head of solutions and product.
