Founding partner of venture capital firm Lakestar Klaus Hommels and former Italian prime minister Matteo Renzi discuss the outlook for Europe and how politics can help it achieve sovereignty in financing and technology.
If you listen closely to leading business figures from Asia, you get a sense for their economic fears and expectations. After visiting a leadership summit in Singapore, I am ever more convinced that we will be facing a new global Cold War, which will be fought over technology dominance. Europe needs to prepare for that.
