Stage 1) Is dedicated to the story of the entrepreneur. It goes without saying that
all great success stories have a beginning. We want to open these stories to a
wider spectrum, this will be an inspiring session which will have a mix of youth
and experienced entrepreneurs, talking about their life experiences, good and
bad, and an idea with hard work can grow into something very special. This
session is perfect for anyone that takes a keen interest or is budding
entrepreneur in the making.
Stage 2) is dedicated to the future of IOT. What is IOT? and what opportunities
can arise from the Internet of Things?

Instead of being viewed as a means to

achieve incremental conveniences, IoT is seen as a critical stepping stone on the
road to raising each nation's standard of living while simultaneously providing
employment to millions of citizens by becoming global leaders in this new
industry. Speakers will engage in a reimagined discussion of what the future
holds for our world and IoT. IOT @ National Digital Week will be the hotspot for
IOT debate.
