Join us at one of the largest student-led entrepreneurial conferences in the world, where we bring together more than 400 entrepreneurs, investors, technologists, academics, and students to share, collaborate and connect with visionary thinkers on all aspects of entrepreneurship.
To mark the 10th anniversary of our conference we invite you to examine accelerating technology developments which are leading to profound changes in society. With segments on 3D Printing, Biotech, Big Data and Emerging Technology Markets, the conference draws upon concrete examples of the ways entrepreneurs are using technology to systematically disrupt industries and pave the way for new sectors to emerge. What magnitude of transformation will be experienced by society as more and more industrial processes are able to be harnessed by the individual? What are the implications of these technologies to our economy, businesses, and everyday lives? And how can today’s entrepreneurs systematically apply these lessons to increase the impact of their ventures on the world around them?
