NEBF 2015

NEBF has a vision of bringing together people who can help drive innovation and progress in the region. At the New Europe Business Forum, we aim to gather, not only businessmen, academics and policy-makers from the CEE region, but also the most excellent group of students from all over the world. By bringing them closer to some of the most prominent global entrepreneurs, we hope to ignite that entrepreneurial spark so that maybe one day, some of these young women and men will find enough audacity to start their own innovative business ventures and in the process help themselves and their communities.
