What are the biggest tech trends in the world right now? Read our key takeaways from Founders Forum Global 2024.

Our 19th edition of Founders Forum Global brought together the very best in global tech, including 450 trailblazing founders – 220 of whom have founded unicorn companies – 120 top CEOs, and 130 world-class VCs representing $1.5 trillion AUM. 

In a year when more than half the world’s population heads to the election polls, tech visionaries – representing 40 countries and over 60 industries – made new connections, discovered fresh ideas, and shared their insider insights on topics ranging from geopolitics and AI sovereignty to neurodiversity, web3, and sustainable food.

We heard founders share their stories of hyper-growth, brand building, and customer obsession. We learned about new breakthroughs in quantum, life-saving biotech solutions, and how to go from zero to 100 million subscribers on YouTube.

Plus, tech’s brightest entrepreneurial minds discussed how rapid advancements in AI are accelerating drug discovery, elevating spiritual intelligence, and transforming industries from media and music to healthcare and climate tech.
