Ahead of The Arch Summit on 3 and 4 May, Tomorrow Street’s Warrick Cramer explains that the hosting the event in Luxembourg will help showcase how the country’s innovation ecosystem is making a global impact.
“Many events aim to connect startups with large organisations but often fail to generate truly impactful relationships,” says Warrick Cramer. “The Arch Summit is planned by Tomorrow Street Innovation Centre, which is not an event agency but a product of collaboration between the corporate, public, and startup worlds.”
Cramer believes this puts Tomorrow Street in the ideal position to connect the right people as, “It isn’t something we are just doing at this event, it is something we do day in and day out. We know what works, and we are uniquely positioned to bring the right people in to make that happen.”
As for why they chose Luxembourg to host the event Cramer explained it was for the same reason that Tomorrow Street selected the grand duchy as its launchpad for global innovation. “The entire country is constantly looking towards the future and taking action to get there faster than anyone else. The innovation ecosystem in Luxembourg is already diverse and making a global impact, and this is only the beginning. We want to do our part to demonstrate this to the world.”
“The Arch Summit is aimed at startups, large organisations, and anyone interested in seeing and shaping the next generation of innovation. It is important to anyone that is interested in seeing the starting point of innovations that will change the world” he explained.
In addition to over 200 tech exhibits and dozens of inspirational speakers, the event will host pitch competitions for prize money of €250.000, “that will reveal not only the next potential unicorns, but also the entrepreneurs that can change the world through the social impact and female empowerment competitions (each with a €50.000).”
