Uncertainty is becoming the norm in our fast-changing world and business owners and investors are looking for answers in how to turn volatility into opportunity. A range of solutions were discussed in detail at the fifth edition of the Pictet Entrepreneur Summit, held in Geneva at the end of August. A key takeaway from this year’s event was put best by senior managing partner Nicolas Pictet, who said that established ideas about how business, trade and politics work are quickly shifting. From blockchain and artificial intelligence to personalised healthcare and philanthropy, a host of innovators were on hand to lead discussion in charting a course through disruption and on to prosperity. Rooftop lunches, intimate dinners and a range of activities such as chocolate making allowed delegates from around the world discuss a range of topics presented by high-profile speakers such as Dr Moran Cerf, a professor of neuroscience and business at the Kellogg School of Management, and Claus Kjeldsen, CEO of the Copenhagen Institute of Future Studies.
