mcb tech is about inspiring people to take a leap into the future, into the unknown, and to give them a glimpse into the crystal ball of future trends and opportunities. This has been our mantra since we first launched the conference in 2018, but not even we could foresee the global pandemic ushering in a wave of radical innovation, new business models, and new ways of thinking.
While the global pandemic was, no doubt, a tough and strenuous time, it also represented a global spark of innovation and a rapid, unprecedented force of change. A key takeaway from this year's mcb tech conference is that crises, calamities, or even just small inconveniences can sometimes be just what we need to push ourselves to new heights, explore bold ideas and break out of old patterns.
The lineup boasted both Norwegian and international speakers of world-class caliber with different perspectives on how to capitalize on the future trends on the tech scene, and how to identify innovative ideas worth investing in. Together we explored The metaverse, responsible AI, Green Computing, Cyber Security, EU regulations, Corporate innovation Strategies, and the power of friction to force innovation and change.
Below are some of our learnings and key takeaways from this year's conference:
