     WISeKey continues its history of strong support to Voices for
 Innovation (VFI) by actively participating in events designed to increase
 the level and volume of the conversation around the technology policy
 debate. The latest event was a VFI Breakfast meeting with Steve Ballmer,
 CEO of Microsoft, and 15 other senior level executives from companies
 within Europe. Carlos Moreira and Dourgam Kummer, WISeKey's Chairman and
 Managing Director, attended this exclusive breakfast as guests of VFI to
 the Executive Partner Summit in Cannes, France.
     Lending their voices to the discussion, Moreira and Kummer helped drive
 the conversation around the need to increase the motivation of European
 innovators to start companies and to take risks in order to compete in the
 global marketplace. We need initiatives like Voices For Innovation to
 change the culture in Europe, on how we reward entrepreneurs.
