“We Are All Stakeholders of Our Global Future”

Klaus Schwab, founder and executive chairman of the World Economic Forum.

Germany is the third most competitive country in the world, as the World Economic Forum (WEF) in its Global Competitiveness Report 2018 showed.

Based on ten different criteria, the country offers the best conditions for mastering innovative processes from idea to marketing. Only slightly worse cut in the point of the US and Switzerland.

The result contrasts with the criticism that is widespread in Germany that Germans are great inventors, but do not understand how to translate their ideas into successful products and companies. Also, the lack of venture capital and the slow expansion with fast data lines (5G) is often lamented.

The WEF changed its methodology in order to show which countries are best forearmed for the what they call the Fourth Industrial Revolution (4IR).

Many factors that are crucial in this new environment have in the past played no role in policy decisions, such as brainstorming, entrepreneurial culture, social openness and agility.

This leads to a bunch of questions that brought us – the Popup Team – together:

To what extent do these failed directives affect our present and future working and living environment?

How far can we overcome the challenges of slow policy decisions in the face of the increasing speed of developing markets and technologies?

Or are brainstorming techniques, entrepreneurial skills and agile companies the solution?

What can the german landscape learn from other countries? What can Europe learn?

Is the U.S. American way one to adapt?

What goals should we set ourselves within a new era of self-employed, co-working and international teams to be reached for a better work life future? 

In our Popup Meetup on July 3rd 2019 (6pm) we have invited innovative speakers to present their current challenged and ideas to shape the future.
