Discover the biggest tech trends in the world right now! Read our key takeaways from Founders Forum 2023.

Our 18th edition of Founders Forum brought together the very best in global tech, including 400+ trailblazing founders – 200 unicorn founders – 180 top CEOs, and 130 world-class VCs representing $1.5 trillion AUM.

Over the course of three days – at our main day Founders Forum, our Chair & CEO Breakfast, and our inaugural Founders Angels Forum – tech visionaries made new connections, discovered fresh ideas, and shared their insider insights on topics ranging from climate tech and culture to quantum and the metaverse.

We heard founders share their stories of bootstrapping, hyper-growth, and global expansion. We learned about new waves of cyber threats, pills that can make us live longer, and what the world will look like post-2050. 

Plus, tech’s brightest entrepreneurial minds discussed the opportunities, risks, and practical applications of AI.

What are the biggest tech trends to watch in the world right now? Over 50+ interactive speaker sessions, seven key themes emerged:

  • Generative AI. A Special Moment.
  • Geopolitics & Defence. Deepfake bosses and the sovereignty delusion.
  • Media & Sport. The metaverse lives.
  • Extending Life. Growing organs and transforming health.
  • Making Moonshots Happen. Quantum to Fusion.
