Entrepreneurship and Innovations Forum (EIF) 2020


5G is being rolled out in many parts of the world, and it is unleashing significant entrepreneurial, innovation, and investment opportunities throughout the world. It is generally entrepreneurial pioneers and startups who take the risk with new and innovative technologies, products and services. This EIF within WF-5G offers a platform for speakers from the entrepreneur community to present and showcase their 5G strategies, innovations and practices. The aim is to actively promote the engagement of entrepreneurs and young businesses in pioneering 5G innovations and to stimulate vibrant discussions on how 5G would improve and evolve with time as technologies mature to deliver its full potential. It also provides a networking venue for startup executives, entrepreneurs, investors, academics, and participants.

The EIF will be a full-day track with three sessions being planned, one in the morning and two in the afternoon. Each presentation is suggested to be 20-minute long. At the end of each session, we will hold a panel discussion with the speakers and the audience.


Stimulate in-depth discussions among the EIF participants by providing a platform for them to showcase their implementation, evolution, revolution and potentially disruptive business models in 5G.
