The main topic of this years SECA conference was about Transforming Society through Innovation. Nevertheless, the SECA conference offered again a wide range of different subtopics, that all interests are covered.


Morning Session
Transforming Society through Innovation
Join us to hear from world class experts who are driving social transformation by leveraging innovation, technology and entrepreneurship. Mohandas Pai from Manipal Global Education will share how innovation changed the game for global corporations which employ extraordinary talent in India and worldwide. Michl Binderbauer of TAE Technologies will share how “deep-tech” innovation in nuclear fusion can alter the global energy landscape by harnessing the power of the sun on earth (see photo above). Bernard Moon will share insights into how SparkLabs Group, the global venture capital firm in partnership with ASU/Thunderbird, are supporting innovation from Asia to Silicon Valley. Andreas Thors at Partners Group will help us better under-stand the trends and impact of deploying private capital into leading innovation players and projects worldwide.


Lunch Session


EU Programs aimed at Swiss VCs and Angel Investors – Introduction of Initiatives and Accessible Capital Pools
Unknown to many in Switzerland's start-up ecosystem, the EU has initi-ated a number of investment and support programs that are accessible to Swiss founders and investors. In this Session, we aim to introduce some of these programs and enable networking.


Real Estate & Infrastructure – Opportunities in Today’s Markets
What is required to turn promising Asian demographic and GDP growth figures into attractive real estate returns? Or should we focus on European opportunities? In contrary, Swiss investors still shay away from international real estate investments. What are the reasons and are recent commitments from Swiss investors setting a new trend? Experts will discuss those questions and opportunities in today’s markets.


Global Venture Capital  – Startups going International and Corporate Co-Creation
Lessons learned from Entrepreneurs, Corporates, Stanford and the MIT’s Startup Exchange: Connecting Startups with corporates for innovation, co-creation and their internationalisation.

  • Presentations may not be distributed.


Young SECA – Urgency of Climate Change: Generation Z calls for tangible Climate Solutions
The time for action is now – this is the mantra being taken up by Generation Z across the world. Already this year, thousands of high school students across the world have skipped school to protest against the inaction on cli-mate change. This session looks at how institutional investors, innovative asset managers and engaged entrepreneurs can respond to this urgency with concrete solutions and sustainable investments.
