For over a decade, Prakash has been providing geopolitical advice and foresight to leaders of business and nations. He is the founder of The Geopolitical Business, an advisory firm in Toronto, that helps business play geopolitics smartly.

In 2013, Prakash was among the first in the world to define “Next Geopolitics,” the intersection of geopolitics and technology.

He is the author of five books, including “Next Geopolitics: Volume One & Two” and “Go.AI (Geopolitics of Artificial Intelligence).” His latest book, “The World Is Vertical: How Technology Is Remaking Globalization,” is about the new, fragmented design of the globe, where barriers and walls exist everywhere.

Prakash is a provocative keynote speaker, who has brought new geopolitical thinking to audiences across the world. He has also appeared in many of the world’s leading media outlets, including CNBC, the Wall Street Journal, Nikkei Asia, Telegraph, CNN, and Business Insider, among others.

Prakash was born in New Zealand to parents from India. He had his childhood in Australia and has grown up in Canada. He humorously refers to himself as an “accidental author,” having never expected to write one book, let alone five.

Nikkei Asia:

Ukraine war accelerates new era of vertical globalization

Instead of the world being more open and accessible, as it has been for decades, it is now becoming a place full of technology-based walls and barriers, things that I classify as vertical. These new vertical borders that are forming are enough to put every company in the world in the hot seat.

New geopolitical blocs will govern the future
