IMPACT SUMMIT ZUG 2016
Small Canton – Big Impact

SUMMIT SPEECHES

The inaugural Zug Impact Summit 2016 was a testament to the tremendous energy that investment experts, entrepreneurs, politicians, NGOs, scholars and many other stakeholders in our society can unleash when given a platform to share their ideas, visions, and engagements for a better future.

We hope these and future speeches will inspire you by the diversity and insight they provide.

Our second Zug Impact Summit – Faith In Finance – takes place on 30-31 October 2017.  Venue: Theater Casino Zug, Artherstrasse 2-4, 6300 Zug, Switzerland.
