Who are we?

WORLDWEBFORUM is the most successful Swiss business conference for digital transformation & leadership. With speakers such as Steve Wozniak, Co-Founder of Apple, John Sculley, Ex-CEO of Apple & Pepsi, Kirsty Nathoo, CFO & Partner at Y Combinator, & more, we annually bring together international pioneers to discuss the hottest new innovations and developments. 

In January 2016 we launched our project "Next Generation" to bring our broad network of experts together to transfer their knowledge to students. Our goal is to ensure that all students have the tools they need to become successful startup founders. 

In June 2016 we are launching our "Startup Bootcamp" series which consists of our kick-off event in June and specific training & workshop programs throughout the year. Students and start-ups can then apply for our Qualifying Round in January and compete to be one of the 3-5 startups to pitch live at the WORLDWEBFORUM 2017. 

The season will be concluded by our WORLDWEBFORUM / Next Generation event on January 25th 2017, hosting Sir Tim Berners-Lee, the Inventor of the World Wide Web  & other experts from the main event LIVE at ETH Zurich.
