As the number of privately held companies valued at $1 billion continues to grow–there are 100 by last count–so too does the worry that the tech world has finally reached bubble territory.

Instead it’s whether the sky-high valuations themselves are the problem. A number of financial experts have expressed worry over what effect collapsing unicorns could have on the broader economy.

Activist Caroline Casey tells the story of her extraordinary life, starting with a revelation. In a talk that challenges perceptions, Casey asks us all to move beyond the limits we may think we have.

Caroline Casey has dedicated the past decade of her life to changing how global society views people with disabilities. In 2000, she rode 1,000 kilometers across India on an elephant to raise funds for Sight Savers. Then, as founding CEO of Kanchi in Dublin, she developed a set of best practices (based on ISO 9000 quality standards) for businesses, to help them see “disabled” workers as an asset as opposed to a liability. Hundreds of companies have adopted the standards, changing their policies and attitudes.
