The Global Innovation Summit (www.innosummit.com) on February 17-19, 2015 is a conference in Silicon Valley on how to foster the growth of innovation ecosystems to drive entrepreneurship, technology, and economic impact. The event seeks to catalyze systemic, sustainable innovation across organizations, communities, and countries. Last year’s Summit brought together over 450 innovators from 50 countries, representing governments, corporations, venture capital, NGOs, startups, and academia. The Global Innovation Summit is the centerpiece of Global Innovation Week, which features multiple events and activities throughout the region. The weeklong affair was organized by T2 Venture Creation, a Silicon Valley venture firm and ecosystem design studio.
Endeavor VP of Global Network and Endeavor Catalyst Managing Director Allen Taylor will be moderating a panel on investments in emerging ecosystems. Read a description of the panel below.
Catching Waves: Investing in Emerging Ecosystems
How can startup investing succeed in emerging ecosystems? Venture capital is already difficult in established places like Silicon Valley, but it becomes even more difficult when the ecosystem is still maturing. Here, we’ll explore how early-stage investments are made around the world. Whether it’s microlending in Africa, venture capital in Asia and Latin America, or angel investors in urban America, investors must understand the dynamics of their ecosystems in order to succeed. What are the common patterns to the common challenges? We’ll hear from some of the most innovative early-stage investment organizations in the world, learn what they look for, see what they see, and get a peek into ecosystems that are on the rise.
