Tech Talk: Building A Startup Ecosystem

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

There is no single formula for building a great entrepreneurial ecosystem. But there are certainly best practices, and lessons to be gleaned from the people who have molded nascent startup economies into fast-growing hubs for innovation.
This panel will explore the "Rise of the Rest": the idea that great ideas and great companies can be found anywhere, not just in Silicon Valley or other established hotbeds. Specifically, we have convened a panel of tech hub leaders from across the country to examine the proliferation and prospects for tech hubs in off-the-beaten path cities. They will speak to their own experiences working to build a startup ecosystem, and the appropriate role for institutions – both public and private – in supporting ecosystem formation and development. If you are someone at the forefront of trying to build a startup ecosystem in your community, this is a discussion for you to listen and share input.
Presented by Google for Entrepreneurs.
