Dear Unconvention Friends,
It all started 5 years ago with one objective: to do something Unconventional in a city where many people think it’s all about men and women in grey suits. So the European Young Innovators Forum (EYIF) decided to hold the Unconvention, a tech, business and policy event all in one, bringing together our entire community of young entrepreneurs, successful entrepreneurs and EU leaders to think, do and change the way we understand innovation and entrepreneurship.
Join us on 23-25th of January 2017 to experience the future and meet together with young Europeans with innovative ideas from major European Innovation hubs and those who can support them #GrowGlobal: successful entrepreneurs, investors, academics, experts, top EU leaders, top policy-makers and corporates.
The Unconvention 2017 is the 5th edition with a focus on #GrowGlobal with hot topics about Smart Cities, Artificial Intelligence, 4th Industrial Revolution, Growing Global in a Post Brexit World, Living in an Autonomous Machines World followed by a Drone and VR show and the first European Drones Awards.
Unconvention in a nutshell: mentoring and access to funding sessions, Venture Forum, parallel workshops, InnoPitch competition and forums, policy session at the European Parliament, open discussions with key players of the EU entrepreneurial ecosystem.
We are looking forward to welcoming you all to the top European innovative event in Brussels!
