Alexander von Gabain (AT)

Chairman of the Governing Board, European Institute of Innovation & Technology (EIT)

Alexander von Gabain stressed the fact that the role of the entrepreneur is underestimated. In Europe only 2% of companies have been set up in the last 20 years compared to 25% in the USA. In his opinion we need to create eco systems where people come together and get beyond the silos. It is not about money but more about allowing people to communicate across boundaries. There have been some tangible results confirming this theory in the past five years. Therefore, we need to learn to make smart investments and make courageous decisions.
