Tech and Society Breakfast

Learn. Discuss. Reflect.

We believe technology can have tremendous positive impacts on society. In order to achieve this goal, we need to understand these possible impacts and align the interests of companies, individuals and society as a whole.

We are convinced that thoughtful conversations are key to realizing these goals. Our aim is to empower founders and tech leaders to identify, address, and solve ethical challenges that arise when introducing technology into society.


Meet forward-thinking keynote speakers and connect with influential attendees. 


Join us in creating these conversations.
