Graphisoft President Named to the World Economic Forum's Technology Empowerment Network
Bojár invited for second year to contribute Company's IT vision to prestigious annual meeting
Davos, Switzerland/Budapest, January 29, 2001 - Gábor Bojár, president and CEO of Graphisoft®, developer of ARCHICAD and the revolutionary Virtual Building™ concept of 3D architectural design, joins fellow Technology Pioneers in announcing a new initiative to spur technological innovation at the World Economic Forum's (WEF) annual meeting in Davos, Switzerland.
Held January 25-30, the WEF summit unites top business and political leaders, concerned citizens and the world's most creative academic thinkers to "Create a Roadmap for the Global Future." The 2000 meeting marked the inauguration of the Technology Pioneers program, which brought together the world's most technologically innovative companies to share their success strategies and visions. In 2001, the Technology Pioneers launched the Technology Empowerment Network (TEN), whose mission is to assist social entrepreneurial programs in reaching their goals, and in the process stimulate more technological innovation in the global public interest. Graphisoft is joined by companies from fields ranging from high-tech (CNET Inc.) to world finance (The World Bank) to media (Time Inc.) to education (George Lucas Educational Foundation).
During the annual meeting, the Technology Pioneers will meet to discuss matters of ethics in the new economy, the digital divide between developed and developing countries, how technology is affecting privacy in the workplace, and more.
"I am extremely honored to be a part of the TEN, and to contribute what I have learned in more than 18 years building an IT company," said Bojár. "It's not just about bringing together these great minds at one event. What is discussed in Davos will have a profound impact on the future of technology and how it affects both the global economy and humanity."
