From Open Source to Open Innovation – Fueling the fire of entrepreneurship

The European technology market has long embraced the value of open source technology. As the philosophy of developing open systems spreads, this affinity for openness has expanded beyond the technology and into the methods by which companies are being built and run. It’s about R&D. It’s about business development. And most of all it’s about the way in which the players – both large and small – interact in the ecosystem. With the European market as such fertile ground for the growth and expansion of this open source philosophy, there are substantial commercial gains being made. In this session – a discussion with some of the players who are helping make this open innovation market and philosophy a reality.

Panel: Mobile technology – at an economic crossroad The ubiquity of mobile devices, combined with the increased computing power they offer have enabled greater potential for collaboration across widespread areas with diverse and mobile teams. For emerging start-ups growing in the fertile European ecosystem this means teams are not tied by geography and can move – literally and figuratively – as their businesses require. Unfortunately, the economics of mobile computing haven’t caught up; and pricing models for mobile plans often force prohibitive cost barriers for small companies. In addition, new businesses are trying to disrupt the economics and business. This session brings together some the players who are taking on these challenges and hear how the European market could soon overcome these obstacles.

Panel: Building business by playing games
Shakespeare said: “all the world’s a stage”. In today’s technology-infused existence that metaphor shifts to the multi-level environment created by the world of gaming. Once the domain of teenage boys, gaming has become a powerful platform for building businesses, establishing relationships and generating money. From the creation of entirely new business models and economies to the use of gaming technology as a way to engage with customers and employees to the use of games as an avenue for brand development and marketing – gaming isn’t just for kids. In this session some of the leading players talk about how it’s time for business to come out and play.

  • Jonas Luster, World of Warcraft
  • Sebastien Vidal, Chief Operating Officer, NCsoft
