The World Incubation Summit 2019, is a invitation-only international conference that brings together an exclusive group of business incubator and accelerator managers, corporate innovation experts, policy makers, and entrepreneurs from across the globe.

Under the theme “Activate Your Innovation“, the third edition of the World Incubation Summit aims to:

Empower incubator and accelerator managers to systematically improve their programs' impact and performance.

Provide corporate innovation managers with fruitful connections to key actors in the global innovation ecosystem.

Support policymakers in learning about best practices for nurturing local, regional, and national entrepreneurship ecosystems.

Theme: Activate Your Innovation

The willingness and ability to innovate has become a critical prerequisite for staying internationally competitive. Business incubators and accelerators nurture the talent and ventures that form the backbone of the knowledge-driven economies of the 21st century. Based on this understanding, the World Incubation Summit 2019 provides incubator and accelerator managers, corporate innovation officers, and policy makers a platform to connect and learn about the best ways to nurture innovation in their respective ecosystems. #WIS19 attendees will engage in panel discussions, workshops, networking events, and matchmaking activities designed to provide them with crucial business intelligence and relevant connections. They will discuss and analyze how to best "activate their innovation" - including business model analyses, partnership and sponsorship opportunities, tech trends - and make lasting connections with like-minded professionals.
