Next Gen Summit FAQs:
How do I know if I'm likely to be invited to the Next Gen Summit?
Next Gen absolutely puts an emphasis on the Summit's attendees fitting the criteria of "young" entrepreneurs, although they don't supply a set in stone age limit. Beyond that, what they're looking for in your application is that you're passionate about what you do, ambitious, talented, and open to new ideas.
The conference is limited to 1,000 vetted attendees from around the globe, and if your application is accepted you'll be able to purchase either a General Admission or VIP ticket.
What's the difference between General and VIP Experience access?
The Summit Experience includes 3 days of speaker events, workshops, a pitch competition, and networking. The VIP Experience includes all this plus a VIP Private Networking Session, Premium Mentor Selection, Premium Private Talks Selection, expedited pitch review, and reserved seating.
