EY World Entrepreneur Of The Year™
13-17 June 2018 | Monaco
In this transformative age, the radical collision of industries is creating opportunities for entrepreneurs to reshape businesses in ways never before imagined.
What if you could take some time out to reimagine the future of your market, what that means for your business and who you’ll need to collaborate with to bring your new ideas and creations to life?
Join hundreds of disruptive entrepreneurs and forward-thinking business leaders at the EY World Entrepreneur Of The Year™ 2018 Forum. This unique event blends a celebration of entrepreneurship, together with an interactive program that will help stimulate new ideas and build connections with people outside your industry.
Through highly immersive experiences, we will help you explore issues that will affect many industries. Sessions will be focused around the following themes:
By 2050, two-thirds of the world’s 9 billion people will live in cities. To thrive, the cities of the future must be built around citizens’ ever-changing needs and be resilient to interoperability challenges and increasing global pressures.
Several cities have become the convergence point for a range of new possibilities around mobility, energy, infrastructure and lifestyle experiences.
Propelled by rapid digitization, these opportunities require the boundaries between industries to be redefined and new cross-industry ecosystems to be re-imagined.
As a fourth industrial revolution unfolds, health is being reimagined in a way that fuses the biological, digital and physical worlds. The ubiquity of data and analytics means every company is now a tech company. In the future, companies from every sector will develop products to improve health as data and algorithms shift power from traditional health care incumbents to consumers, payers and new entrants.
Consumer industries are at a tipping point: as every part of the value chain becomes digitized, data analytics algorithms enable smart fulfillment of individual consumer needs. As the ability to satisfy each consumer need is met by increasingly more product categories, sectors, market entrants and channels, consumer expectations will become more liquid and competition will significantly increase. These drivers are at the heart of industry convergence across sectors, but it is the shift toward invisible micro transactions — set to create a world where 99% of what we consume is passive and automated — that will make the concept of ”shopping” obsolete.
We will also honor and gain insights from EY Entrepreneur Of The Year™ winners representing over 50 countries and announce the winner of the coveted EY World Entrepreneur Of The Year™2018 Award. Our celebration includes a gala with a performance by Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter Jamie Cullum.
