The Challenge

The Coronavirus Pandemic has changed the way we live, we work, we commute, we communicate, we share, we study. It has changed our lives profoundly, overnight!

Thought Leadership has been replaced by Breaking News.

With hundreds (thousands) of canceled and postponed business (incl mobile, tech and innovation) events around the Planet, it feels like the business world is not spinning anymore.

It is in turbulent times like today when leadership must turn into stewardship. It is today when we need the forward thinkers to have a global stage to debate and share. We need it now!

The Solution

Webit is launching Webit Virtual - The Thought Leadership Online Platform.

The Platform has 3 building blocks:

1. Highly curated interactive content, created by many of the worlds forward thinkers – business leaders, policy makers, investors, media and scientists

2. State-of-the-art business networking platform in collaboration with Wolfram Alpha and one of the world's top neuroscientists – Kelloggs' School of Management - Moran Cerf.

3. Distributed content production platform – using Zoom and any other reliable online conferencing solution empowered by centralized production and technical capabilities to stream to millions of viewers from our own servers as well as streaming through youtube and facebook simultaneously and any other third party content distributors and broadcaster.

Content Strategy

Each Webit Virtual Program consists of:

Thought Leadership Part

1 - keynote interactive presentation,
2 - discussion panel, moderated by renown international journalist, and
3 - fireside chat between the host of the program and a special guest

Innovation Part

a highly curated selection of scaleups (Webit produces the world's biggest scaleup challenge with over 4 500 company applications and $1 Million award pool) pitching live in front of a jury of 5-7 investors followed by Q&A and announcement of a winner.

TECH FOCUS AREAS include:

AI 5G Blockchain IoT VR/AR Next Gen Cloud Biotech Robotics

The Opportunity

Currently all business people in Europe and North America (+ Asia and some in South Africa) are working from a home office.

There is no better time to launch a program like Webit Virtual. The lack of thought leadership, the fact that no one is traveling and stuck at home makes the launch a natural decision.

The opportunity is to have Webit Virtual on the majority of the screens of Webit’ 800,000+ community members and many more.

Audience

The Webit community reaches out to over 800,000 digerati, among them world's forward thinkers – innovators, global business and academia leaders, investors, Presidents, Prime Ministers, EU Commissioners, regulators, members of parliaments - all of them debating on the most pressing challenges which the humankind faces today.
