GP Bullhound Summit

Connecting the creators of the new digital world


Once a year, GP Bullhound selectively invite 100 of the most impactful captains of our industry to share experiences, inspire fresh thinking, debate current issues, predict the future and most of all, have an enjoyable time away from the daily grind of building tomorrow’s giants.
Summit 2017 promises to be something unique. An amazing line up of entrepreneurs sharing their ideas and predictions. We will be drilling down into AI and robotics; look at how transport and cities are being redefined; discuss China’s love for Europe and the long term implications, and much more. Entrepreneurs will also have the opportunity to meet some of the sharpest investors in the tech world with leaders from KKR, Francisco Partners, Partech, General Atlantic and Bridgepoint. Business contacts then morph into friendships with after work activities such as: tennis, paddle, watersports and great Andalucian cuisine.
The Summit is by invitation only. It is a not-for-profit venture, the cost of the ticket is all inclusive, and the event is backed by GP Bullhound with sponsoring partners Berenberg, KKR, Francisco Partners, Barclays and Nasdaq.
