The visionaries' conference

Silicon Valley entrepreneurs and investors know what's big thing. When we all work together, we know what is currently developed in AI, BlockChain, Crypto currencies, mobile technology, autonomous transportation, security technology, logistics tech and also food tech, agricultural technology and all the various spaces. Instead of keeping the knowledge for ourselves, we share our visions to prepare others, collaborate and eventually prepare markets.

The ``Society3 World Innovations Forum`` takes it a major step forward to bring that spirit to all corners of the earth. We want all countries to be able to unfold the power of innovation and entrepreneurship.

What can you expect?

Active participation and engagement with the best of the next generation. In 50+ think tank sessions you join the collective intellect, shaping our future. Used to just listen to others? Sorry this won't be for you.
