Welcome to the first high-level Entrepreneurial Leadership event in Europe!

“Entrepreneurial leadership is… necessary for any person and any organization to adapt successfully to today’s complex and dynamic world.”
Risto Siilasmaa (Transforming Nokia, 2018)

We have new, positive evidence of entrepreneurship across different organizations. Entrepreneurial doers are the key to renewal of our companies and societies. They make real the emerging opportunities created e.g. by technology development.

Join us to discuss how to build entrepreneurship also in large organizations, to make our companies more resilient, and to build growth through collaboration.
