For the second year in a row, Global has been invited by Horasis, an independent international organization committed to enacting visions for a sustainable future, to participate in one of its flagship events. The agency will lead one of the panels at the upcoming Horasis Global Russia Business Meeting in Limassol, Cyprus, on April 14th and 15th. The panel titled ‘Supporting Innovation: Who are the Russian Innovators?’ will be moderated by Global’s Lena Feygin, who leads the firm’s digital health innovation practice group. Last year, CEO Givi Topchishvili was a guest speaker at the Horasis event in Luxembourg.

One of the main objectives for each event is to stimulate thought and action to ensure sustained economic success for emerging economies on the global stage.

“The level of interest and investment into sustainable innovation that we are seeing out of China, India, UAE and Russia has been unparalleled in the past year,” said Feygin, who also spearheads a health innovation lab weMultiply. “We are thrilled to be a part of Horasis global initiative to identify business issues for a sustainable future.”

“We have set out to advance sustainable growth and innovation in emerging regions where such progress matters most,” said Dr. Frank-Jurgen Richter, Chairman of Horasis: The Global Visions Community. “Every meeting has become a testament to the caliber of thought leadership and influential growth those regions deliver.”
