Globally renowned tech entrepreneur Jimmy Wales is heading to Oslo this October to present an address as part of the 2019 Xynteo Exchange.
As co-founder of Wikipedia and the Wikimedia foundation, Wales brings a unique perspective on the power of democratised information, de-centralised publishing and the role of the internet and social media platforms in today’s society.
In his first visit to Oslo since 2016, Wales will address 500 business leaders and change makers on day one of the 2019 Xynteo Exchange in Oslo, as part of the Square programme.
