The Consortium for the 4th Industrial Revolution 2017 (C4IR) investor-business network & global event series provides a knowledge and market access platform for investing in, funding up, partnering and innovating via 4th industrial revolution tech. Effects are that industry40 will help eradicate global poverty and reduce pollution.

This unique Capital Consortium for the 4th Industrial Revolution 2017 (C4IR) global event series and investor-business network provides the market access platform for understanding and investing, partnering and innovating in the 4th industrial revolution. In short, it is an ambitious platform to usher in the 4IR and try to understand the trillion dollar question of investment in it. Leading figures have said that the 4IR category will see exponential growth by enabling large productivity gains and new models. But when? And how? Who will benefit/lose out? At what ROI - and how do we calculate it? What are the real risks of cyberattack? What technical issues of deployment exist and how severe are they? What new business models will be used? Assessing winners and losers in a nonlinear change scenario is fraught; we will present a method and enable intelligent discussion.

Some of the most insightful leaders will provide executive investor briefing sessions at these intensive one-day masterclasses which are preceded by welcome reception dinner networking evenings. 

There are 8 excellent speakers and leaders throughout the day - including Dr Caroline Hargrove (TD) and Chief Engineer Dr Rob Bowyer of McLaren AT and Pilgrim Beart of Device Pilot and Sam Bose of Intellisense, both Cambridge entrepreneurs. 

Welcome from Director

We warmly invite you to join us in Cambridge, UK to listen, discuss, understand, network, dine, meet, build relationships and invest or fund. Welcome to the Capital Consortium for the 4th Industrial Revolution investor briefing event series in world-class cities in 2017! There is also a new C4IR membership network; we encourage you to join.

I am thrilled to launch C4IR’s network of exchange and global event series which will offer valuable support and market access to investors interested in understanding and investing in the fourth industrial revolution / industrie 4.0 technologies and new business models. With complexity and (cyber and investment) risk high, new business models unfamiliar, ROI and market timing unclear, technical challenges of IOT in context high, yet investment urgency very high, the C4IR investment network and masterclass series is a much needed, bold, global initiative to connect and come together that I hope will resonate with the world’s 4IR corporate and financial investors, engineers and innovators. There is also a new C4IR membership network; I encourage you to join.
