Covering a wide range of topics from the future of money to new innovation models to intangible assets, the notable list of experts that will address the Innotribe audience throughout the week includes:

This year's programme introduces the concept of 'journey's', enabling individuals to build their own journey along different tracks, depending on what they want to achieve.

Value Track: Analyse the new banking business model; question wealth beyond money, define tangible assets; and join an amazing research project to crowd source wellbeing.

Innovation Track: Explore what there is beyond open innovation; learn about what is happening right now and how it can be applied in business.

Big Data Track: Investigate how new insights can be derived through Network Analytics from all the data that surrounds us.

Practise Track: Experience new methods of thinking in 'hand on' sessions. Step through the Innotribe tunnel, a 'not-to-be-missed' experience, into Innotribe's uniquely designed space 

In addition, Innotribe will hold the grande finale of the global Startup Challenge, where the nine winning startups and six innovators from the regional challenges, will compete in front of a live audience and professional panel of judges, who will award a $50,000 prize to the top startup.

Peter Vander Auwera, innovation leader and co-founder of Innotribe says: "The future of payments and alternative currencies has become the focus of industry discussion. But something bigger is going on: we witness disruptions at several levels leading to an enriched conversation on the meaning of value, wealth and well-being, which is why a big part of Innotribe's 2013 programme at Sibos is centred on the 'value track' covering alternative business models, alternative investment and alternative accounting and valuation. To really find out what this means, tune in to the Innotribe sessions during the week at Sibos."
