What is Heroes?

HEROES is the first Euro-Mediterranean Co-innovation Festival that involves the most inspired (and inspiring) modern heroes: CEOs of global enterprises, business angels, investors, intellectuals, researchers, policy makers and the most interesting startups of the Euro-Mediterranean basin.

It’s an unmissable event on innovation, companies and future, in the last edition more than 200 guests took part in the meeting, speaking and performing on our sea view stages.

Check out the program, the speakers, the Heroes Award and the countless networking opportunities to meet tomorrow's talents.

Main topic of this edition is: MONEY&VALUE. A clear provocation to think without prejudices about money, about the contrasts linked to it, about the models of distribution, about how cryptocurrencies, sharing economy and decentralization are changing for the days to come our lives and the shapes of our cities.
