Call for Entrepreneurship and Innovation Forum Proposals

5G and its extensions (i.e., B5G) have unleashed significant entrepreneurial, innovation, and investment opportunities the world over. It is generally entrepreneurial pioneers and startups who take the risk with new and innovative technologies, products, and services and introduce them to the market. This initiative is meant to actively promote the engagement of entrepreneurs and young businesses in pioneering innovations in 5G and B5G and to stimulate vibrant discussions on how these would improve and evolve with time as technologies mature to deliver their full potential. The Entrepreneurship and Innovation Forum offers a platform for innovators from the entrepreneur community to present and showcase their evolutionary or revolutionary 5G strategies, and potentially disruptive business models. It also provides a networking venue for startup executives, entrepreneurs, investors, academics, and participants.

We welcome proposals for individual talks or panels that can give the Future Networks community fresh insights into how entrepreneurs are playing an innovative role. Start-ups are invited to showcase their innovation in this track.
