Among the participants attending the world’s leading conference on innovation could be found: 1,500 World Leaders, Business Leaders, scientists, social entrepreneurs and policy makers.

I attended the conference with a well-prepared agenda based on innovation and entrepreneurship vision, Which aimed to improve the Economic and Start-Up Ecosystem, Education, Green Energy, Agri-Tech and Employment. As one of the youngest participant at the Forum, I had a challenging task - to represent the voice and Leadership potential of youth in the Biggest Forum in the World, and we rose that challenge.
