The promise is andldquo;No panels, no boring keynotes and no distractions from the real task at hand andndash; engaging in meaningful conversation and building deeper relationships with other participants.andrdquo; This statement indicates that the concept differs from many of the existing events of this type that are seeking to compete with others by ever growing numbers of participants. It seems that nobody is asking what kind of advantage a participant gains from attending an event with 10,000+ others.
SHIFT's aim is andldquo;to better understand the co-evolutionary relationship between humans, nature and technology, an open-air business festival gathering growing and experienced entrepreneurs and professionals from the entrepreneurship ecosystem.andrdquo; To achieve the better understanding, SHIFT facilitates a platform connecting potential with success. The idea to organize such an event started in late 2014 and the event has been growing steadily from zero to 4000 attendees in 2017 andndash; although on the website the organizers gives andldquo;5 reasons why not to attend SHIFTandrdquo;.
The festival features two days full of meaningful conversations, a stage program, round-table discussions and workshops, in addition to several side events, networking sessions as well as after parties.
