TC Covers The World Economic Forum 2016

The Intersection of Technology Innovation and Public Policy January 20-23, 2016

Finding Technology Solutions For The Fourth Industrial Revolution

Technology is having an enormous effect on the policies of governments and the biggest global industries. And technology leaders like Eric Schmidt, Marissa Mayer and Bill Gates are attending Davos alongside some of the biggest startups, as they too affect the world. Furthermore, technology solutions for the problems of the developing world — an ongoing concern at Davos — are mushrooming. It’s for these reasons that TechCrunch is going in force to Davos, and bring our ‘tech mojo’ to World Economic Forum.

Improving The State Of The World

We’ll have a ‘TechCrunch Cafe’ in partnership with Tradeshift with the ability for people to drop by, grab coffee and network. Also join us for TechCrunch Davos Live - our live interview series that include firesides and panels on Wednesday night as well as a daily programme of video interviews on the following days of the WEF. If you will be in Davos and would like to attend our Wednesday event, RSVP at the link below.
