Boom in Tech – Doom in Politics: How can business contribute to a better future?

Participants such as Paul Polman (Unilever) Eric Schmidt (Alphabet) President Kersti Kaljulaid (Estonia) and Viktor Vekselberg (Skolkovo Foundation) met together with other business leaders and the next generation of leaders such as Claudia Olsson (Exponential), Jussi Herlin (KONE) and Jeremy Hindle (Headstart AI) to discuss the current state of technology and politics.

The topics were leadership and regulation in the age of AI and the relations between China, EU, Russia and the US. As to how business can contribute to a better future, the answer was simple. We must all be part of the solution. There is no other choice.

Furthermore, if you cannot explain what the purpose of your business is, you will go out of business.
