Not Another Valley: Startup Hubs in Latin America

Mar 10, 2017 | 5:00pm – 6:00pm

Speakers

Bruno Peroni

Semente Negocios

It is common to hear the claim of policy makers, politicians and media to build the next Silicon Valley, but this is just impossible. The Valley was born in a unique context and it is not replicable. So how do we create the same magic of the Valley in Latin America where resources are scarce and the economy is less dynamic? And how can entrepreneurs and organizations foster entrepreneurship ecosystems in regions with scarce resources when there is no role model? We will hear the experiences of representatives from startup hubs in Latin America (Brazil, Colombia and Mexico) in order to understand how organizations are working to hack the status-quo culture to build innovative companies.
