Since the early days of the digital revolution in the 70s, Silicon Valley has been considered the global hotspot for technology, innovation and entrepreneurship. It is still today a magnet for global talent and capital, and an inspiration for cities around the world that want to build startup communities.

But Silicon Valley is no longer the only template for driving innovation, jobs creation and local impact. As startup communities are popping up in every major city globally, this session will explore what makes a great entrepreneurial ecosystem, and how to build and nurture one in your city.

***Des écosystèmes d'entrepreneurs dans les villes: dépasser le modèle de la Silicon Valley***

Depuis les premiers jours de la révolution numérique dans les années 70, la Silicon Valley a été considérée comme l'espace mondial pour la technologie, l'innovation et l'esprit d'entreprise. Elle est encore aujourd'hui un atout pour les talents et les capitaux mondiaux, et une source d'inspiration pour les villes du monde entier qui veulent construire des communautés de start-ups.
Mais la Silicon Valley n'est plus le seul modèle d'innovation, de création d'emplois et d'impact local. Au fur et à mesure que les communautés de start-ups apparaissent dans toutes les grandes villes du monde, cette session explorera ce qui crée un bon écosystème entrepreneurial et comment construire et en nourrir un dans votre ville.
