Future of Cybersecurity
Breakout Session
Industry Specific

Future of Cybersecurity With the ever-growing development Artificial Intelligence, the cybersecurity industry must continually undergo transformation. Picture a world where cyber criminals will use such machines to operate independently and maliciously. Security companies must be able to counter attack and outsmart this AI, most likely by creating their own AI. To what extent is this already taking place? What steps need to be taken in the Cybersecurity industry?

How to Pitch the Media: Scale-Up Edition

Nowadays, the best way for scale-ups to get their name out there is by attracting media attention. This isn't as easy as it sounds. Don’t believe us? Give it a try LIVE at CapitalFest! During this session, 4 scale-ups will get on stage to pitch our international jury of journalists. Each one will have the chance to pitch the media - with one catch. Expert host, Ayelet Noff, will be giving tips, hints & feedback along the way, helping improve the pitch and proving to the journalists that they are worthy of being covered. The jury will then select a winner and cover their favorite scale-up! Up for the media-challenge?

Future of Money
Breakout Session
Industry Specific

Technology is playing a huge part in shaping the future of our money systems. What was once mainly paper has officially gone digital, with more and more people relying on digital transactions rather than tangible money and physical banks. The decentralization of digital currency continues to evolve, leaving us with many questions. What can we expect to see next? Are bitcoin and blockchain the answers we’ve been searching for? Will banks become a thing of the past?

Future of Ecosystems
Breakout Session
Industry Specific

We’re amongst a global-spreading startup revolution. How can hubs, cities & countries foster a thriving climate for technology? What kind of assistance do startups need in order to become scale-ups? To achieve a powerful startup ecosystem, the critical building blocks must be in place. This panel will dive deep into the ingredients needed to build such an ecosystem, one that supports scale-ups in their mission to grow rapidly.
