About the speaker:
Helen Chen is the CEO and Co-founder of Nomad Homes. Nomad is Dubai’s
first property technology (“proptech”) company built to exclusively
serve buyers and renters. The technology company is powered by machine
learning, virtual tours, and digital document signing all of which are
aimed at providing customers with a digital-first experience from
start to finish.

Prior to founding Nomad, Helen was an investor and worked at Goldman
Sachs, China Investment Corporation (CIC), and Blackstone. While
pursuing her MBA at Stanford, the heart of Silicon Valley, Helen
developed a passion for proptech. Against all odds, Helen left her MBA
to pursue proptech in the Middle East after recognizing the potential
in the region. She relocated to Dubai and launched Nomad in 2019.

A strong believer in supporting women both in tech and in the
boardroom, Helen is a champion for hiring female talent at Nomad and
encouraging a balanced workforce.

Helen graduated Summa Cum Laude with a BS in Economics from the
Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania and is an alumnus of
the Stanford Graduate School of Business.
