The new playbook for innovation and startup success is emerging from beyond Silicon Valley - at the "frontier." Startups have changed the world. In the United States, many startups, such as Tesla, Apple, and Amazon, have become household names. The economic value of startups has doubled since 1992 and is projected to double again in the next 15 years. For decades, the hot center of this phenomenon has been Silicon Valley. This is changing fast. Thanks to technology, startups can now take root anywhere - and they are, from Delhi to Detroit to Nairobi to Sao Paulo. Yet despite this globalization of startup activity, our knowledge of how to build successful startups is still drawn primarily from Silicon Valley - over the years, countless books, blogs, and speeches have codified this model, prescribing what a startup should look like and how it should be run. As venture capitalist Alexandre Lazarow shows in this insightful and instructive book, this Silicon Valley "gospel" is due for a refresh - and it comes from what he calls the "frontier", the growing constellation of startup ecosystems, outside of the Valley and other major economic centers, that now stretches across the globe. The frontier is a truly different world where startups often must cope with political or economic instability and lack of infrastructure, and where there might be little or no access to angel investors, venture capitalists, or experienced employee pools. Under such conditions, entrepreneurs must be creators who build industries rather than disruptors who change them because there are few existing businesses to disrupt. The companies they create must be global from birth because local markets are too small. They focus on resiliency and sustainability rather than unicorn-style growth at any cost. With rich and wide-ranging stories of frontier innovators from around the world, Out-Innovate is the new playbook for innovation - wherever it 1. Language: English.

This book offers a comprehensive model for explaining the success and failure of cities in nurturing startups, presents detailed case studies of how participants in that model help or hinder startup activity, and shows how to apply these lessons to boost local startup activity.Startup Cities explains the factors that determine local startup success based on a detailed comparison of regional startup cities-pairing the most successful and less successful cities within regions along with insights and implications from case studies of each of the model's elements. The book compares local city pairs, highlighting factors that distinguish successful from less successful cities and presents implications for stakeholders that arise from these principles.Peter Cohan is a lecturer of Strategy at Babson College and one of the world's leading authorities on regional startup ecosystems. Starting in 2012, he created and led Startup Strategy courses that explore four regional startup ecosystems-Hong Kong/Singapore, Israel, Paris, and Spain/Portugal. These courses are based on an original framework for evaluating why a few cities host most startup creation and the rest fail to do so. In running these courses, Peter has built a network of local policymakers, investors, entrepreneurs, and professors from which he draws practical insights for what distinguishes successful Startup Commons from their peers. The book provides vital benefits to these stakeholders.What You'll LearnLocal policymakers will know how to build a local team to set objectives for their local Startup Commons and develop a comprehensive strategy to realize those goalsEntrepreneurs will know how to choose where to locate their startups based on factors such as the supply and quality of talent-from chief marketing and technology officers to coders and sales people, quality of life, access to capital, customers, and mentors, and costs such as salary and real estate expenseUniversity administrators and faculty will know how to take research out of their labs and house it in companies that can commercialize that research, create academic programs that will encourage more entrepreneurship among their students, and connect with local policymakers and capital providers to spur local startup activityCapital providers will know how to scout out emerging startup cities where they can get access to the best investment opportunities at more favorable valuations and have greater influence on how the local startup scene evolves Who This Book Is For All key startup stakeholders, including local policymakers (mayors, directors of economic development, treasurers, controllers, presidents of regional chamber of commerce), entrepreneurs (CEOs, chief marketing officers, chief financial officers, chief HR officers, chief technology officers), universities (presidents, deans of faculty, provosts, professors of finance, management, and entrepreneurship, directors of international education), and capital providers (venture capital partners and associates, angel investors, bank loan officers, managers of accelerator operations)
Known for its big banks and wealth, Switzerland’s investors are now turning their attention to innovative entrepreneurs solving the world’s most pressing problems.With some of the top schools and universities in Europe, the country boasts a well-educated domestic talent pool intent on building the businesses of the future. Last year, VCs invested more than €1 billion in Swiss startups. In the 2019 Global Ecosystem Report, the Lausanne-Bern-Geneva ecosystem came in seventh in the newly-introduced Life Sciences ranking, which pertains to startups committed to diagnosing, treating and managing diseases. Furthermore, the Basel region has the highest production volume in life sciences in the world. And while the cost of living in most Swiss cities is high, so, too, are salaries and quality of life. It should come as no surprise, then, that the country has produced so many successful impact startups.Startup Guide Switzerland explores the startups, founders, programs, investors and schools which are moving the needle on important issues relating to sustainability and social impact. The guidebook provides the necessary tools to navigate startup ecosystems across the country and lends valuable insight from the figures leading the way.
