SZ Economic Summit

Once again this year we expect more than 70 top-class speakers from politics, business, science and culture. Instead of lengthy lectures, the SZ Economic Summit offers varied discussions, cross-examinations and debates, moderated by leading editors of the Süddeutsche Zeitung. And again this year there are some exciting innovations in the program!

In order to improve, the economy is constantly evolving, as is the SZ-Wirtschaftsgipfel. The most important new development this year: For the first time, each of the three economic summit days has its own key focus. Our Digital Day will be held on Monday, our Change Day on Tuesday and our Future Day on Wednesday. In addition, we have taken our welcome evening on Sunday, where we launch into our congress in a relaxed atmosphere, to a next level: For the first time, we are inviting all participants to join us at our great night of start-ups at the Kalkscheune in Berlin-Mitte.

The series: The Süddeutsche Zeitung accompanies the “Gipfelstürmer” competition with a series about founders in Germany – on all channels: printed, digital and in the social media. The website also presents the six finalists and other interesting applicants. The Twitter hashtag for the start-up competition is #Gipfelstürmer.

The Call for Applications: From 19 May, the application can be uploaded using a form on this page. Please send any questions about the competition to:
