Revolutionary-turned-entrepreneur wants to shake up education software via the cloud

When entrepreneur and computer engineer Nikola Bozinovic founded Frame in 2012, he wanted to provide a way to bring Windows applications easily to as many people as possible by way of cloud storage. Frame aims to democratize access to software, something that isn’t very different from Bozinovic’s earlier goal of bringing governmental change back during his student days in his native Serbia. This backstory is perhaps more unique than that of the average tech entrepreneur. Prior to his Silicon Valley days, Bozinovic lead protests against then-Serbian President Slobodan Milošević in the 1990s.

Entrepreneur and artist aim to curb global infant mortality rate

When Jane Chen and Drue Kataoka met at the Forum of Young Global Leaders in 2012, they quickly formed a friendship based on their shared passion for carrying out socially impactful work. They both came from significantly different backgrounds — Chen is the co-founder of Embrace, a startup that hopes to curb high worldwide infant mortality rates by way of the low-cost Embrace infant warmer, while Kataoka is a visual artist whose often interactive work aims to bridge the perceived gap between art and technology. Flash forward three years, and the two women have launched a unique collaboration that combines Chen’s business and Kataoka’s art to raise awareness of and ultimately decrease high global infant mortality rates.
