The digital transformation under debate at Mobile Talks

Mobile World Capital Barcelona has launched Mobile Talks, a series of meetings around the digital transformation, with the aim of encouraging debate on the latest trends in areas such as innovation, or the impact of new digital solutions on traditional business models, among others.

This initiative,  promoted in collaboration with the Ibero-American forum on the digital era RETINA, is aimed at professionals in the digital sphere, entrepreneurs, investors, institutions and R&D directors at big corporations.

Mobile Talks will start next October 11 in Barcelona. This first session will take place in Mobile World Centre (Barcelona) and will analyse the potential of corporate venturing as an innovation tool for large corporations through the collaboration with startups.

The forum will feature presentations by Gregor Gimmy, founder and director of BMW Startup Garage, the BMW Group’s incubator for automotive startups in the seed stage; Dr Jens Pippig, founder and director of the accelerator ProSiebensSat.1; and Jonathan Tudor, ventures director of Castrol InnoVentures, the investment wing of the energy company British PetroleumAfter their remarks, participants will begin a debate around the links between their international experiences and the local business community.

Mobile Talks has planned three more forums, to take place in Barcelona and Madrid in the coming months. Specifically, in November of 2016 the first Mobile Talks will be held in Madrid, with corporate venturing in the spotlight.
