EY World Entrepreneur Of The Year™

13-17 June 2018 | Monaco

In this transformative age, the radical collision of industries is creating opportunities for entrepreneurs to reshape businesses in ways never before imagined.

What if you could take some time out to reimagine the future of your market, what that means for your business and who you’ll need to collaborate with to bring your new ideas and creations to life?

Join hundreds of disruptive entrepreneurs and forward-thinking business leaders at the EY World Entrepreneur Of The Year™ 2018 Forum. This unique event blends a celebration of entrepreneurship, together with an interactive program that will help stimulate new ideas and build connections with people outside your industry.

Through highly immersive experiences, we will help you explore issues that will affect many industries. Sessions will be focused around the following themes:

Future of cities: how new collaboration will put smart technology at the heart of new urban environments and enable new services for citizens and consumers.
Future of health: how data and algorithms are shifting power from traditional health care incumbents to consumers, payers and new entrants.
Future consumer: how data and customer analytics are shaping how consumers will buy routine purchases and shop as an experience.

We will also honor and gain insights from EY Entrepreneur Of The Year™ winners representing over 50 countries and announce the winner of the coveted EY World Entrepreneur Of The Year™2018 Award. Our celebration includes a gala with a performance by Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter Jamie Cullum.

Register your interest here.
