What you will get
Day 1 - The new business of business - what is being done where and how?
This first day includes presentations and panels where you will learn how the process of growing startups has changed (new networks, new education, new money), and what kind of organizations are supporting these new processes.
Day 2 - Knowledge sharing and scalability - how to have a massive and global impact on entrepreneurship?
The second day is an unconference: the agenda will be decided on-site. The goal of these discussions is to draw the lessons learned from the first day, and to discuss next steps to improve knowledge sharing: what can be done short term and long term to promote a culture of entrepreneurship and create impact on a global and massive scale.
