Initiated by the US Government, the GES is the pre‑eminent annual gathering of entrepreneurs, innovators, investors, and thought leaders from around the world, creating a unique event that is a combination of an innovation marketplace and a policy forum.

This year’s Summit theme is “The Future Now.” It will be the first GES held in the European Union and will focus on five key investment areas: Agriculture/Food, Connectivity, Energy, Health, and Water. 1,200 companies will be invited to this event with more than 2,000 visitors from 140 countries expected to attend. During the two-day program, established entrepreneurs will be able to showcase their startups to a select group of decision-makers.

With an inspiring program, GES 2019 aims to be a game-changer for all attendees, empowering them to start building “The Future Now”.
