DEBRIEF DAY 2
The tech companies able to capture carbon are the future world giants !
Today, Nicolas and Guillaume went to meet the startups at the Web Summit. This day started off in a bit of a disappointing way, since after a rather empty conference from Chris Crox from META around the Metaverse, and another intervention from Apple around the security of its iOS, our experts are came out with very few new things to eat.
Fortunately, Brad Smith’s talk about industries of the future raised the bar a bit. According to him, we must invest massively in companies that work to capture and fix carbon! This is the future like softwares were 50 years ago!
For Guillaume, it is micro-mobility with 15-minute journeys, which were debated. Finally, he also discovered in this same trend that Bolt will launch its Bolt Market application, in “super app” mode, and which will offer delivery in 15 minutes!
DEBRIEF DAY 3
The new Russian bank Sberbank and cryptocurrencies!
For this last debrief, Nicolas and Guillaume share their lessons with you live from Lisbon airport.
Focus on the new Russian bank Sberbank, present for more than 180 years, it is becoming a tech giant with its own smart speakers, autonomous vehicles, its own entertainment, services and commerce platform. All centralized in a virtual assistant.
In this new edition of the Web Summit, the vision on cryptocurrencies is no longer associated with trading. Many startups are positioning themselves on the subject such as Celsius, which wants to disrupt all of the world’s banks and to bank the population through decentralized tools and crypto-currencies.
