ECOSYSTEMS Couch Conference

COUCH CONFERENCE

Supporting the global startup ecosystem

IN PARTNERSHIP WITH STARTUP GENOME · JUNE 25 · ONLINE EVENT

IN COLLABORATION WITH THE FT

Renewing economic growth in 2020

As the consequences of national lockdowns weigh in, governments and companies are looking for ways to restart stalling economies. Meanwhile, impacted startups subsist on short cash runways. Looked at optimistically, governments are faced with the opportunity to fundamentally realign their economies on a more sustainable and digital path. Now is the time for city policy makers, business leaders, investors, and startup founders to come together to discuss how governments can support and leverage tech ecosystems and renew economic growth.

In collaboration with the FT, Ecosystems online event will leverage expert insights to tackle questions like:

  • Learning from this public health crisis: how can the tech ecosystem help governments build more resilient economies?
  • What will startup-government collaboration look like in 2020 and beyond?

We’ve enlisted top thinkers including Thomas Walle, CEO and Co-founder of mobility data company, Unacast, to lead the way.

We know what you’re thinking: not another webinar. Couch Conferences go beyond the online format with hands-on workshops, live interviews, and audience Q&As. Interact with other attendees on real-time discussion boards and expect a few TNW-style touches — digital disco, anyone?
