April 2024 - April 2024 Meeting

Seattle 2050: Discovering Tech Horizons


Seattle, the spearhead of the Pacific Northwest, is an ecosystem that represents excellence in technological innovation and forward thinking.

Characterized in recent years by exponential economic growth, this cutting-edge city is considered among the most competitive for business internationally.

A landmark for the high-tech industry globally and known for its many sustainability projects, Seattle is a true innovation hub that is increasingly attracting investment and a skilled workforce. Companies such as Amazon, Microsoft, Boeing and Starbucks have helped reshape the future of work through distinctive new business models, creating a true culture of innovation spread across all spheres of society.

The seven-day trip will be a unique opportunity to come into direct contact with the most important players in this ecosystem and grasp the key factors of its success.

The program will consist of company visits and meetings with Experts and Business Executives, to discuss with them the present but especially the future: vision, strategy, opportunities and challenges to build or maintain leadership in the coming years.

The Strategic Journey is also a great networking opportunity: in fact, it is reserved for a limited number of entrepreneurs, members of top management and Top Managers.

Meetings will be held in one of two official languages (Italian or English) depending on the speaker; no translation services are provided.

The trip can be partially financed through Fondirigenti and Fondir interprofessional funds.

Participation in the initiative is subject to submission of the application form.
