Pitch Session for Startups: New Areas of Growth for Business and Government

24 May, 09:00–10:15
Technology for Leadership
Roundtable
Pavilion F, Conference Hall F2

The digital economy is not the future, it’s here right now. A revolution has taken place unnoticed, changing both our lives and the ‘lives’ of business and government. Even in such traditional sectors as medicine, energy, or agriculture, a business which is not ‘digital’ will no longer be a business 10 years from now. How can startups and startup technologies improve the efficiency of corporations and government bodies, and remain profitable? How can big business and government harness the innovations of young companies to create synergies? During this interactive session, entrepreneurs and representatives of corporations and the regions will discuss practical examples of successful cooperation.
