Navigating the rocky road to European tech sovereignty at the Summit

It’s the final countdown to the Summit! On Tuesday May 17, hundreds of entrepreneurs, investors, corporate leaders, policy makers, academics and journalists will convene to share ideas on how to grow the European tech scene and take innovation ecosystems to the next level in a sustainable way.

From the Digital Markets Act to the EU Chips Act, the EU is scrambling to create policies that will strengthen its competitive clout on the global stage by creating a fairer playing field for EU tech companies and safeguard the bloc in times of crisis. However, the sovereignty journey is fraught with complications — and slow — which is why we're thrilled to have three experts on the Grow stage on Tuesday at 15:45 to bring us up to speed. 

Ludwig Siegele, the European business editor at The Economist, will sit down with Veriff co-founder and CPO Janer Gorohhov, Sebastien Marotte, the EMEA president of Box, Yann Lechelle, the chief executive of Scaleway.

Yann told recently that Europe is far from achieving digital sovereignty. The boss of the French cloud computing company has lots to say about what the EU needs to do to boost its own tech giants. He has also founded, grown and exited five tech startups, many specialised in developing alternatives to the world’s largest tech giants and is a founding member of France Digitale, HUB France AI, and GAIA-X. 

Janer is in charge of product and innovation at Estonia’s Veriff. The online identity verification company was set up in 2015 and now has over 360 employees and serves over 190 countries. 

Sebastien will bring his 30 years' business experience and knowledge of the EMEA region to the panel. Before joining cloud content management company Box, he spent over 10 years at Google Cloud and held executive roles at software giants like Hyperion and Oracle.
