A Short Flashback

The "Festival of the Future" has a predecessor: the 1E9 conference. Three times, we have been able to bring together internationally renowned thought leaders with the most exciting newcomers to discuss technology and solutions for the future. Most recently, for example, the mRNA pioneers from BioNTech were there, but also Ethereum co-founder Vitalik Buterin. The video shows you impressions of 1E9 THE_CONFERENCE 2021.


1E9 is an optimistic community of visionaries, entrepreneurs, scientists, artists, nerds, creatives, experts, and optimists who care about the future. 1E9 provides information and inspiration through an online magazine and offers space for constructive discussions through its digital platform and various kinds of events. While being open for all kinds of ideas, the focus of 1E9 lies on technology and its societal implications. The home base of 1E9 is in Munich.
