THE FUTURE OF TECH ETHICS
SHIFT connects groundbreaking technologies with leaders of traditional industries for a discussion about the ethics of future development.
"SHIFT feels like a Nordic SXSW. Truly amazing"
5 reasons why NOT to attend SHIFT
"I don’t want everybody to join SHIFT. I want SHIFT to be an extraordinary event for exceptional people." - Aape Pohjavirta, Chief Evangelist at Funzi.
We think Aape has a point. So we figured we would give you 5 reasons NOT to attend SHIFT:
- I have never heard of SHIFT
Honestly, this is not surprising. We are the new (cool) kid on the block. We want tech and business to be beneficial, responsible, and sustainable. As a festival we don’t want to be too big, nor too small. You should be able to talk to everyone you want to talk with and meet whoever you want to meet with, while not getting lost in the mix. Intimate is how we like it and that is why we are limiting tickets to 4000 attendees.
- I’m not sure who this event is for
Shaken and stirred. That is our aim and that is why SHIFT connects entrepreneurs and organisations from industry and tech.
- SHIFT is not an event specifically for my industry
True, SHIFT is not an industry specific event. Most of our attendees are tech companies and industry players. We believe in shaking things up – new relationships lead to new ideas. 94 % of our attendees have found it easy or extremely easy to meet new people at SHIFT.
- I don’t know who else is attending
To help you out, we always publish the first companies attending under “Who’s attending” in March. You can also tell us who you would like to meet and we will make it happen. Send us a message at info(a)theshift.fi !
- I don’t know the speakers
That’s what we are going for. We want you to feel the joy and surprise of discovery! We take great pride in the fact that we find and select the best and most inspiring speakers before they get big. Remember that excitement in finding a new band before everybody else? That is our goal with our speakers and other program.
SHIFT is a hands-on event
The festival features two full days of meaningful conversations, a fantastic stage program, round-table discussions and workshops, in addition to several side events, networking sessions as well as after parties. The program will gradually relesaed on the website during the spring. Sign up for SHIFT News to get notified first.
