THE WORLD SUMMIT ON INNOVATION & ENTREPRENEURSHIP (WSIE)
Since March 2012, Akira Foundation has been selected among Japanese institutions as a strategic partner for the World Summit on Innovation & Entrepreneurship (WSIE). WSIE was launched at United Nations in 2006. Supported by three UN agencies including UNDP along with International Chamber of Commerce, African Union, and multinationals like PepsiCo, Boeing, CNBC, and Microsoft, the first WSIE took place at the historic city of Muscat, Oman, and has been held every other year with over 70 countries attended. Held on May 17-19, 2016 at United Nations Headquarters, WSIE on “New Frontiers” will showcase “a bold and provocative exploration of what the future of business, market spaces, digital, products, minds, machines, experiences and trans-disciplinary innovations will be like in 2020 with one clear message: Head there.”
