At the Summit, the speakers will discuss how technology and entrepreneurship impact billions of people’s lives in emerging markets. “Most people don’t really associate emerging markets to a billion of opportunities and we’re here to show them that these markets are already transforming into centres of innovation where talented people and changemakers grow,” explains Alisée de Tonnac, CEO at Seedstars World.
Around 1000 entrepreneurs, venture capitalists, corporate executives, business angels, government officials, journalists and startup enthusiasts are expected to join for an amazing experience in Switzerland.
