Mobiles, technology and innovation is the focus of the Swedish lunch at Davos this year, which is hoping to attract 450 participants. Brothers Alexander and Marcus Widegren, who run the fintech company Lånbyte have arranged the event in which participants take a train up a peak in the Alps for a two-hour lunch with debates.
There is a debate panel with Bodil Eriksson, CEO for Volvo Cars Mobility and Jean Todt, UN special envoy for road safety. There will also be a discussion between Maria Stromme, professor in nanotechnology and Boyan Slat, whose “Ocean Cleanup” develops technology to clear plastic from the ocean.
Alexander Widegren comments, “Sweden has a good brand and international reputation. This gives us the opportunity to talk to world leaders but also the privilege of being good role models of Sweden’s values of equality and diversity.”
