We see a shift towards impact entrepreneurship, with more and more businesses giving the same gravitas to creating societal impact as making a profit. During this session we want to inspire people to think about new economic and industrial structures that are needed to support societal, environmental and technological changes. Models and practises on future-fit economies are elaborated from the perspectives of policymakers, investors, innovative entrepreneurs, scientists and corporates. A framework is set for the coming sessions.
