TNW2020 ECOSYSTEMS TRACK

DIGITAL CITIES AND NATIONS

Explore opportunities for tech-government collaboration in the Ecosystems track at TNW2020.

Around the world, governments are embracing tech to improve investment relations, job creation, and a more sustainable use of local resources — all to better serve their citizens. At the same time, concerns remain about privacy, data rights, a growing digital divide, and trade uncertainty.

Ecosystems discusses how cities and nations can successfully build strong tech ecosystems, by taking a look at best practices and the future of government-startup collaborations. Speakers will explore questions around data-driven government transformation, and regulatory innovation trends for future digital ecosystems.

This track is for you if...
You are a Startup Founder, Policymaker, or are curious how governments and startups can work together.

  • DATA-DRIVEN GOVERNANCE


    The govtech revolution allows policy makers around the world to provide citizens better and faster services. How can governments implement tech effectively, and what does the future hold for digital governments?
