Formal Debate: Innovation is happening more outside Silicon Valley than inside

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

We are living in a flat world driven by Innovation. For a long time Silicon Valley has been the nucleus of technology innovation; giving rise to successful companies and business models that have brought in highly utilitarian and irreversible changes in how we live and operate. But is this trend slowing now and for what political, social and economic reasons? In a highly engaged format, two opposing teams comprising of investors, entrepreneurs and technologists will formally debate where actually does the Innovation needle lies at this moment in the global speedometer and what are the forces behind the current dynamics. You will not only learn what the near future may look like based on current trajectory of global innovation but get a real chance to take sides in the debate and win the Debate Moderator’s (Linda Bernardi) new book Provoke, debuting at NASSCOM Product Conclave today!
