Three top speakers | A world-class moderator | One evening full of interesting insights
On Wednesday July 3rd 2019 at 6pm located at fancy Unicorn Event Space Berlin Wedding the Popup Agency will present the unique POPUP Meetup with its current challenge: “Copycat EU? How do we differentiate ourselves from Silicon Valley?!”. It will be the first Meetup of the new event series “Future of digital work”.
Expect three top speakers, a world-class moderator, an exciting socio- political topic, hundreds of new insights and an opportunity to meet experts from great digital industries.
The idea behind this event was born after a rough philosophical discussion – during a raining winter evening – between four founding members: Tina Banerjee (CEO & Co-Founder of Brainpath), Bernhard Hecker (CEO & Co-Founder of Value.Digital), Martin Wartig (CEO & Co-Founder of Value.Digital, Co-Founder ValueLogic) and Daniel Zehnpfennig (Business Development Manager at ValueLogic). We couldn’t answer this question:
Is our global competitiveness falling? Why is Silicon Valley and China ahead in technology and science? Are they really?
Let’s look at Germany. Germany has 11 of the 100 most valuable brands. In terms of Growing business and Economic strength, Germany is one of the leading economic powerhouses of the European Union.
But people are still asking: Why is disruptive innovation still being produced and developed mostly within the U.S. or China? Why does ‘Made in Germany’ include only few leading digital products and why is there no German website among the 100 most visited if we think of Google Alphabet, Microsoft, Amazon and Apple?
Is our current situation really that bad?
Let’s find it out. Let’s hear leading experts to discuss where we are heading.
That’s why found three speakers from various digital branches in a chilling atmosphere to discuss and stimulate the different intercultural changes that shape the future of our digital work.
Let’s hear, how they want to shape the future.
