South Summit Industry & Energy Bilbao will bring together the protagonists of the Industry 4.0, Energy Transition and Mobility sectors
On 23rd and 24th November, the B Accelerator Tower (BAT) international entrepreneurship centre in Bilbao will be the epicentre of innovation and the latest trends in the Industry 4.0, Energy Transition and Mobility sectors thanks to the celebration of South Summit Industry & Energy Bilbao, the meeting for the entrepreneurial ecosystem of these sectors organised by South Summit and Biscay Startup Bay.
The trends, opportunities and challenges in these sectors will be the protagonists of the open conversations scheduled at South Summit Industry & Energy Bilbao, designed to make high-value connections between them.
In addition, the meeting will be attended by speakers who are experts in innovation and the latest trends within these sectors: James Arbib, founder of RethinkX, the think tank focused on identifying disruptive innovations to ensure an impact on society, and Owen Reynolds, member of Teklas Ventures, a venture capital fund specialised in automation, robotics, automotive, Industry 4.0, energy, and decarbonisation.
During the two days of South Summit Industry & Energy Bilbao, representatives of corporations, companies and startups from the Basque Country will also participate, including Iberdrola, Repsol, Arteche Group, BEAZ, Saitec, Woza Labs and Barbara IoT, as well as more than 20 investment funds such as Cerulean Ventures, Eurazeo, Icos Capital and Semapa Next, national and international corporations and more than 40 startups from Europe and Latin America.
In addition, attendees of South Summit Industry & Energy Bilbao will be able to attend scheduled visits to the most cutting-edge technological and industrial hubs in Bilbao and to the most emblematic places in the city, such as the Guggenheim Museum or the Museum of Fine Arts.
