Today we talked about how new technologies are already influencing the world, and how businesses needs to transform themselves to be successful in the future. For me personally, meeting Michio was one of my most fascinating experiences in recent time. I am convinced that it was just as intriguing an event for our friends and business partners as it was for me,” said Concorde Capital General Director Igor Mazepa.
