START Summit is organized by the students of University of St.Gallen in Switzerland.
The increasing pace of the global digitalisation requires a new way of thinking. Today’s economy is confronted with an everlasting need of innovation. Large corporate institutions start building their first start-up initiatives to participate in the race for new and fresh ideas.
This is good news for the IT specialists, because every new opportunity actual winners of this new demand on the labour market are the IT specialists. A new economic era is looming, but it also involves new risks. The recent acquisition of “What’s App” and initial public offering of “Alibaba” pose questions regarding the internet companies valuation and the over-priced stock market.
With this year’s motto “don’t be innovative, be disruptive”, START Summit wants to take up these matters and discuss potential challenges and solutions.
In 2015, the event promises to be the biggest one yet, inviting 600 participants to attend a 2-day event, which has 8 high-calibre speakers, 40 workshops arranged by well-recognized firms such as Microsoft, Facebook, Axel Springer, SAP, Novartis Venture Fund, Dacuda, Doodle and Hub:Raum.
Have a business idea to pitch? START Summit will have 50 investors to whom you will be able to pitch your ideas to, and young founders from fast-growing startups who will be able to provide you with the so-needed feedback.
