The Next Web Conference

Dr. Tataj for the first time joined at TNW2019 Amsterdam and confessed „Absolutely my top favourite entrepreneurship event in Europe. Why? This is why:

Super cool venue and cool people. Just as I like. A creative crowd in a post industrial zone transformed through art. 

Creative way with The Assembly to build innovation networks thanks to partners PwC McKinsey & Company and preparing tomorrow’s live interview with Tim Bradshaw Financial Times global tech correspondent on future cities and entrepreneurial ecosystems.”

Dr. Tataj had fantastic lounge chats with Frank Meyer VP E.ON, Rebecca Harding CEO CoriolisTechnologies-WebApp, Polish medtech startup founders Mateusz Pinkiewicz Damian Markowski and FT event co-hosts James Lamont Edward Cutts.

Roundtable Event

‘This was an eye opener’ – said one of the senior executives who attended Dr. Daria Tataj’s keynote at a Roundtable organized by WDHB Strategic Learning and us in 22@Barcelona district. A small, intimate atmosphere of an urban farm in post industrial shell… lovely, inspirational group of internacional leaders… Thanks for coming, thanks for feedback! Many leaders today are challenged how to innovate, how to create value and drive sales rather than invest in technology and chase after industry disrupters. Whether we work with business or government leaders, our starting point is similar: what is your growth model for the network economy and how do you help your team learn-to-become change ambassadors?

Report for Montenegro

In March 2019 Dr. Daria Tataj with her Colleagues presented her recommendations on the new growth model for Montenegro to Prime Minister Duško Markovic, Minister of Science Sanja Damjanovic, and Minister for Economy, Dragica Sekulic. Montenegro is one of undiscovered tourist destinations. Yet the ambition of the country goes beyond exploiting the beauty of its nature. Over the last year she have been working with the Montenegro government how to build an entrepreneurial innovation ecosystem.  The country has few tech startups, no venture capital and minimal tech transfer activities. Where should it start? What legal framework is needed to boost innovation? How to structure public funding instruments for innovation activities? How to attract talent, knowledge and capital?

We were there – Mobile World Congress 2019 and 4YFN 2019

We were excited to form a truly uncommon partnership of art and innovation to experiment with Network Thinking™- our research-based methodology helping people learn how to work in networks.
You could meet us on MWC19_4YFN19 on Feb 25, 26, 17, 3PM space Mobile World Capital. 

Networks give each of us a unique opportunity to access global talent, markets and capital. So, If data is the crude oil of today, then trust is the currency of tomorrow’s economy. But how does that work in an economy where a crisis of trust has eroded leadership? That is the question answered by Network Thinking™ – And it’s why we created our unique Leadership Accelerator – based on an unusual connection linking two new innovation labs in Badalona/Barcelona, Spain
