iLeaders Team-Up

iLeaders Team-Up is a meeting of the leaders of the largest international events and communities in the field of technological entrepreneurship.

The communities and the leaders behind them are the driving force for traditional and technological entrepreneurship around the globe.

Advanced entrepreneurial communities are not just the interest clubs. They represent the developed infrastructure — accelerators, investment funds, business hubs and co-workings. This is a wide range of thematic educational events, ranging from pitch competition, mentoring meetings with leading businessmen to conferences involving thousands of participants. This is also the developed match making opportunity with a vast network of contacts for business development.

But the most important component of the technological entrepreneurial communities is the consolidating aura of success, which gives energy for implementation of the intended ideas to thousands of like-minded people.

On October 28, the Forum «Open Innovations» will gather «the golden dozen» leaders of the world events in the field of technological entrepreneurship and start-up movement, who will share best practices for building communities, creating ideologies and values, as well as secrets of promoting projects and increasing the number of users and contributors around the world.

The talk show will discuss the communities and the leaders behind them as the driving force for traditional and technological entrepreneurship and explore the potential for creating the global matchmaking platform among these communities as centers for local startups, investors and businesses that want to access foreign markets.

It is a rare chance to meet in once place Arkady Dvorkovich, Vice Prime Minister of Russia; Viktor Vekselberg, President of Skolkovo Foundation; Yossi Vardi, Chairman of DLD; Plamen Russev, Chairman of the Board Global Webit Series; Marianne Vikkula, CEO, SLUSH; Andreas Tschas, Co-founder and CEO Pioneers; Audrey Verhaeghe, Chairman The Southern Africa Innovation Summit (SAIS) and many other iLeaders.
