The Summit will focus on three broad topics:
1. Examining megatrends that will exert a strong influence on the evolution of the global economy over the next 20 to 30 years;
2. Developing a robust financial system that can move private sector money from the “crowd,” to where it is needed to finance commercially viable enterprises and projects;
3. Fostering new business models for deploying technology, products, and services from where they have been invented and deployed initially to new markets where they can be used to exploit opportunities generated by global mega-trends.
Participants will engage in discussions on finding and developing new financial, investment, and business models for opening access to private capital in an effort to bring technologies to emerging markets more effectively and efficiently.
