As presenters, partner organizations, co-sponsors and participants, we invited hundreds of senior Egyptian and international leaders from diverse industries and economic stakeholder groups.
These leaders are evolving a new mainstream of business and economy that generates business success and economic development because it regenerates the climate and nature, societies and people.
With many of them, we collaborate in ongoing Action Initiatives that translate the inspiration of these events and the Future Economy Forum’s innovation labs, executive education and media programs into concrete solutions.
We have invited:
