About Policy Innovation Forum
The Policy Innovation Forum is a public private collaboration platform to hear from top global enterprises and public institutions regarding policy imperatives necessary to spur innovation and entrepreneurship.
Gathering a diverse range of thought leaders – senior government representatives, industry leaders, academia– the forum offers an exclusive peek into the opportunities and challenges of creating the enabling environment that will help unleash the next generation of technologies and business models. The forum will also highlight best practices from around the world and how regions, countries, or local municipalities can better adapt to rapid technological changes.

The best about Webit.Festival is the diversity of different perspectives on offer. Quite often conferences focus very much on business and marketing while this is bringing the whole ecosystem together - educational thinkers, policy thinkers, startups, and I think this is very commendable.
