The next Steve Jobs is just as likely to come from Lagos, Lahore, Monterrey or Mumbai as from Silicon Valley.
According to Elmira Bayrasli's From the Other Side of the World: Extraordinary Entrepreneurs, Unlikely Places, high-growth entrepreneurs are overcoming vexing obstacles to not only build businesses and jobs and contribute to economic growth, but also to change mindsets. Whether in Mexico, Nigeria, Pakistan or Turkey, people in some of the world's most challenging societies are building globally competitive products and services, attracting international praise and investment, and creating game-changing economic possibilities for their countries.
Join YPFP on Thursday, January 14 from 6:30-8:00 p.m. for a conversation with Elmira Bayrasli to discuss the rise of global entrepreneurship, how Silicon Valley has become universal, and how innovation in shifting to the other side of the world.
