The Rhodes Ventures Forum is an annual conference that convenes current Rhodes Scholars Rhodes Alumni, Atlantic Fellows and leaders in the international business community to discuss innovation, entrepreneurship, and investment as well as to explore how we can create ventures that improve the world. This year’s edition will focus on translation – the process of transforming bold ideas conceived within academic and research institutions into impactful ventures that last. We shall reflect on the support systems that feed venture success, and reflect on ways they can engage meaningfully. The organizers believe entrepreneurship has a key role to play in contending with a world undergoing technological transformation in the wake of the fourth industrial revolution. The forum will present the space for transdisciplinary delegates and speakers to engage on this topic in interactive dialogue, keynote speeches, panels, venture showcases, as well as networking and mentorship sessions.
