As new tools and technologies enable startup ecosystems around the world, entrepreneurs in these communities are starting to plug themselves into global markets. A new generation of entrepreneurs are realizing their competitive advantages in the global economy and are discovering new ways to leverage them. New technologies and processes are pushing us toward borderless and frictionless commerce, but how can we enable this new paradigm in mutually beneficial ways? How can we prevent established ecosystems from using these same technologies to reinforce the dominance of North over South? Our panel will draw from their experiences in fostering new ecosystems in Africa, the Middle East, South Asia, and Latin America to illuminate promising solutions to these challenges.
