Kreuzstrasse 26, 8008 Zürich, Schweiz

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.

Breakfast: "Health vs. Privacy?"


As the corona crisis has shown, data are of crucial importance in combating the pandemic. But they are by no means always available in the necessary quality. How can data from patients and healthy people be better used to strengthen the health of all? How can we ensure that the privacy of individuals is protected -
especially for sensitive personal health data? And how can successful (start-up) companies strike a balance between public health and individual privacy?
