DigitalFuture Summit 2019: Conference on digitalization brings together students and executives at ESMT Berlin

Talented and tech-savvy students will engage with leading global companies and innovative startups at the DigitalFuture Summit 2019.

The international conference, organized by ESMT Berlin students, will take place on June 20 and 21 for the third time. Participants of the event who apply and get accepted to this or next year’s Master’s in Management (MIM) at ESMT, have the chance to be awarded with a €10,000 scholarship.

The DigitalFuture Summit connects students with an interest in digitalization with business leaders and potential employers to foster knowledge exchange and help students expand their network. All keynote lectures, panel discussions, workshops, and master classes focus on four main clusters: connectivity, mobility, creativity, and sustainability. This year’s speakers include Georg Tacke (CEO, Simon-Kucher & Partners), Fabian J. G. Westerheide (CEO, AI for Humans; Founding Managing Partner, Asgard), and Jochem Wesling (Managing Director, Accenture Interactive).

“Besides many exciting speakers, visitors can look forward to a vibrant atmosphere with an interactive entertainment area. Big corporates, startups, and students benefit from connecting with each other and exchanging their viewpoints on digitalization,” says Sarah Ziegler, vice-chair of the DigitalFuture Summit.
