Industry Advisors & investors

Individuals generally have 10+ years of experience in one or more verticals or are young professionals. The Global Venture Exchange provides an onramp to a vibrant community of industry, ecosystem and tech domain experts.

 

Business meets Data Science within the Enterprise. Business, Digital and Data leaders are exploring new ways to work together to unlock the value of data. Sharing perspectives on ‘what to do’ based on maturity, industry, function - among other things - attendees will speed up learning curve and can do more. A wide range of perspectives are represented from Data Science, Digital, CVC, business transformation, corporate development, strategy & partnerships.

The Next Generation of Tech Leaders meet Industry. This occurs throughout the year by doing intake calls with industry Executives that are influencing the data architecture, roadmaps and customer facing services and helping connect related solution providers with business in mind not ideation. Pandora’s box is open with Data Privacy, Blockchain, Security and other technologies forcing a fresh look data management and monetization.

Ecosystem A meets Ecosystem B. We worked this past year with data tech from Japan (AI), Poland (AI, Blockchain), Slovenie (Blockchain), Germany (IoT, the US (Blockchain, Data Privacy). Let’s leverage competencies from around the world. If Ecosystem A like Estonia has cracked the code on a technology area like e-governance industry leaders, entrepreneurs, developers, Universities and others in Ecosystem B should know about it.

 

We facilitate relationships between thought leaders in industry & entrepreneurs to make smarter growth more accessible.
