Jessica O. Matthews, founder and CEO of Uncharted Power, joins the lineup of impressive speakers for the 2021 TMA Distressed Investing Conference.

COVID-19 is changing everything in the business world. Execs are forced to rethink how they operate, what they offer employees, and their greater long-term impact on society; Matthews is using this time to breed a new vision for her company.

Matthews will share how Uncharted Power is adjusting to the new COVID-19 world by doubling down on their mission of redefining power access and building smarter, safer cities. She will discuss: 

  • The biggest challenges she has faced as a startup leader during the pandemic and how she’s turning adversity into vision 
  • The need for small companies to see beyond their own path and understand how they interconnect with other businesses / the world 
  • What the pandemic has taught us about global infrastructure and how we can make updates to improve public health / lives 
  • And more!
