Build roots

Breakout session: Build roots

Focuses on ecosystems – the important, yet often overlooked role of ecosystems that create a fertile ground for new innovations, business creation and growth. The ecosystem is made up of players that take many shapes and forms: well-established or transient, large or small, but always vibrant and buzzing with energy. What are the necessary ingredients for a flourishing ecosystem? How do you attract the right players?
