New Business Summit
About New Business Summit
New Business Summit is the realization of our belief: In order to solve pressing societal problems most effectively, businesses today need to stem from an alignment of effort among various actors in an ecosystem. Entrepreneurs, corporates, investors, SMEs, research institutions and governments should come together with shared efforts to tackle real-world societal challenges. The event aims to be the platform addressing the need for this synergy.
We call for enthusiastic owners and supporters of businesses in smart technology to join us. For startups the event creates an opportunity to exchange and validate their approach with the community that can think out loud with you. For all ecosystem actors it is the place where they can seek for future opportunities to collaborate.
The event is co-organized by World Startup Factory, the startup entrepreneurs in our current Connectivity Accelerator and Impact City The Hague.
