On Wednesday morning, Sanna Marin takes to the stage to discuss “Moving quickly, making history.” Marin knows about making history.

Thursday after lunch, Sir Bob Geldof presents “Where Business Meets Passion.” Businesses can achieve much more than profit: that is the belief of rock star, activist, actor and entrepreneur Bob Geldof. He has never been shy about using his platform to fight for what he believes in, from his punk rock days with the Boomtown Rats to organizing the legendary Live Aid concert. Geldof has run several successful businesses and advises the 8 Miles Equity Fund on strategic, political, and industry issues. Join “Sir Bob” for a frank discussion about how business acumen, passion and an eye on emerging technology can help you boost more than one bottom line.
