Emre Turan

CTO at UNL Global

Podcast – Episode 40:
Solving address poverty 

Creating the internet of places

You wouldn’t believe it, but 4 billion people in the world do not have an address. We take it for granted in first and 2nd world nations. But imagine not having a framework to get things to you. Shocking! This is why Emre Turan, the tech leader of UNL Global, leads the tech to create the internet of places. An addressing system to bring people out of address poverty. Maybe we in more modernized countries will adopt the same system. Thus, creating a standardized global standard.

“First of all, you have to learn how to listen. You need to understand what kind of things people need and you need to serve in that way, if you don’t know what kind of things they need, it’s not gonna work.”

The key takeaways from the conversation with Emre are:

  • The importance of creating a system that anywhere in the world can have an address 
  • Making sure external outsourced teams are invited into the fold of a company. Please don’t treat them differently 
  • Using data to create selfhealing maps 
  • The importance of reading the book Thinking, Fast and Slow” by Daniel Kahneman. It raises awareness around a bug that all of humanity has and will serve your leadership immensely.
