Executive Summit™

Take part in our Executive Summit™ where we present a marathon of nine real-life cases with our sharpest deeptech Members and their customers.

Find out how great companies solved a customer problem, what the results were and what they came to learn in an inspiring, interesting and thought provoking event!

Cases are carefully mixed with three Insights on important technologies and concepts for Executives to be aware of and bring home to ensure that strategies and plans are kept up to date.
