Carlos Moreira Moderating WISekey Hub Fusion eSecurity Roundtable in Valencia

Carlos Moreira, the founder and President of the Swiss-based Internet security company WISeKey SA, journeyed to the Spanish port city on 15 February to support Genevas Alinghi team, of which his company was one of the two official corporate sponsors, with Hublot, in the much-anticipated global racing event.

However, Moreira also took advantage of the occasion to re-establish contact with local officials and to organize a round-table discussion with several personalities on Valencias technological potential as a regional hub.

The public panel discussion, in which Swiss Style CEO John Béguin was invited to participate, focused chiefly on plans to transform Valencia into a major technological hub. Featuring bilingual debates and presentations from local and foreign entrepreneurs, the round table centred on strategies to mobilize the innovation, capital and human resources needed to drive this transformation. A joint venture between the Valencia government and key players in the Spanish, Swiss, Brazilian and American private sectors, the Valencia initiative could greatly facilitate future innovation in local industry as well as contributing to the regions security, education, health services, industry, logistics platform and financial infrastructure.
