CPH – 5th IBA Global Entrepreneurship Conference: The Nordic Model – Rising up to the Global Challenge – by the International Bar Association
May 20, 2019 - May 21, 2019€135 – €1055
The Nordic Region is known for the so-called Nordic model (or Nordic capitalism), in which comprehensive welfare states and progressive societies go hand in hand with free market and trade, and provide for a high standard of living. The Nordics also are renown for housing leading players in numerous business areas, such as food, high tech, medical / life sciences, design and oil. Last not least, the region stands as a model for sustainable development and
for work-life balance.
To facilitate continued innovation and growth of start-ups Nordic governments strive to support entrepreneurship. EU’s Digital Economy and Society Index (DESI) 2018 (https://ec.europa.eu/digital-single-market/en/desi) has Denmark as the front runner followed by Sweden and Finland. Headed by Denmark the Nordic countries form the most digital region in the EU. Copenhagen is, thus, the perfect venue to explore how digitalisation already has disrupted and will further affect various business sectors – and for asking what role the human factor will have in the post-digitalised business world and society.
As in the past, the Conference will combine lively panel discussions lead by entrepreneurs and industry speakers with interactive workshops on practice areas of general interest.
Topics will include:
- Data protection and data security / hacking
- AI / Machine
- Blockchain technology / crypto currencies
- Trends and innovation in the M&A process and in the funding of SME’s
- Governance and structural issues for innovative and fast growing closely held companies
- How disruption and AI will improve the life of lawyers.
The legendary ‘Closely Held’ spirit and social events will provide, once again, for an unforgettable networking experience.
