Learning From the World’s Leading Startup Ecosystems
Information Technology & Innovation Foundation (ITIF)
May 2 - Tuesday
9:00 AM
10:30 AM


High-growth, innovation-based entrepreneurship creates the jobs, companies, and industries of tomorrow and is a vital component of spurring innovation and economic growth in developed and developing countries alike. But high-growth entrepreneurship flourishes best in the context of supportive ecosystems where access to skilled talent, mentors, incubators, partners, capital, knowledge (e.g., universities), and even venturesome consumption thrives. Recognizing this, cities throughout the world have gotten much more sophisticated in creating supportive ecosystems in which startup entrepreneurship can thrive. Join ITIF as the World Bank’s Victor Mulas presents new research on the World’s Best Startup Ecosystems and we hear from practitioners leading the development of innovation ecosystems in leading and revitalizing cities including Boston, Buenos Aires, Tel Aviv, and Detroit.

The event will be live-streamed and a recording will be available following the event. Follow @ITIFdc during the event, and join the conversation using #ITIFstartups.
