In the new book, Out-Innovate: How Global Entrepreneurs – from Delhi to Detroit – Are Rewriting the Rules of Silicon Valley, Alexandre Lazarow takes us on a journey around the world to discover new models for local and global entrepreneurs. Alex provides an outstanding perspective on how startups and entrepreneurs can succeed no matter where they originate with examples of startups around the world.
Over the past few decades, Silicon Valley has codified what a startup should look like, prescribed how it should be built, and defined what its culture should be. However, the Silicon Valley model doesn’t work everywhere, and has even shown cracks at home. The world of innovation needs a refresh. This is already well under way at the frontier, outside the most-developed startup ecosystems, where entrepreneurs are out-innovating their Silicon Valley counterparts. They are making their own rules and charting their own paths, challenging what the model for innovation should be, and redefining what it means to innovate.
In this tech talk livestream we will discuss the virtues of creation over disruption and how the best companies are built out of necessity. We will also discuss born global business and how to build for sustainability and resilience. We will learn about how team diversity is a strength and how some of the best entrepreneurs connect ideas and networks from around the world. Lastly, we touch on global talent strategies and how leading companies are building strong teams, not just hiring strong players. Join us from anywhere.
