Trends, insights, opportunities, and challenges will be discussed and presented in focused panels, keynotes, and fireside chats, featuring leading names in today’s international startup scene, including veteran VCs from Silicon Valley and New York and seasoned entrepreneurs from London, Berlin, and Paris.
