What's happening?


Startup ecosystems are the new economic powerhouses, from Silicon Valley to Berlin and from Tel Aviv to Hong Kong. These tech ecosystems are where creativity is unleashed, entrepreneurship is fostered and growth is accelerated.

Ecosystem Summit is where the leaders of global tech communities come together to share ideas, foster potential and accelerate learning.
