A society where the power over data belongs to the people

We are no longer in control of our own personal information, as well as our online identity. Our industry has made itself dependent on business models that exploits our personal lives, in order to serve corporate interests.

During this event, Swedish startup Zynapp will present a more human-centric alternative, where data ownership and user privacy plays a key role in order to put you back in the driver’s seat over your digital life.

Once you are back in control, you can decide how you want to unleash the power that comes with your data. New technologies and exciting innovations can work in your best interest, instead of the other way around.

Jesper Fellenius - CPO & Co-founder, Zynapp & Tomas Olsson - EVP & COO, Zynapp
