GP Bullhound Summit

Connecting the creators of the new digital world


The Summit is a private affair for 150 of the most impactful captains of our industry to share experiences, inspire fresh thinking, debate current and future trends. With some great activities organised such as tennis, padel, watersports, beach games, kite surfing, race car driving, we make sure to have an enjoyable time together away from the daily grind of building tomorrow’s giants.
Summit 2018 was truly unique. The amazing line up of guests discussed critical developments in technology including the future of cyber security, neurotechnology, the rise of financial applications on the blockchain, monetisation strategies of leading game and app developers, key market dynamics in US & Asia, and how Europe can build a $50bn tech company. The director of Human Rights Watch, Ken Roth, talked about how technology can give an edge in the battle for human rights.

The Summit is by invitation only. It is a not-for-profit venture and the event is backed by GP Bullhound and this year’s sponsoring partners Barclays, KKR, Nasdaq, Gómez-Acebo&Pombo and Heads! International.

The next GP Bullhound Summit will take place in Marbella on 21-24 May 2019. For any enquiry, please contact
