Title:  "The Israeli startup ecosystem and what can we learn from it"
Presenter: Prof. Fabio Kon (IME/USP)
Where: Auditório Antonio Gilioli (Bloco A at IME)
When: May 5th, 2014
Time: from 16:00 to 17:30

The presentation will be transmitted over IPTV.

On the 21st century, the technological startup model is establishing itself as the most effective approach for transfering scientific and technological innovations to the society at large.

In this presentation, I will present the results of a qualitative research about the Israeli software startup ecosystem, performed during my stay as a visiting professor at the Technion University during the second semester of 2013. Tel-Aviv is the second largest startup center in the world, after Silicon Valley, and is of particular interest for brazilians because it is closer to our reality than the north-american context.

I will present a conceptual framework showing the main elements that compose a productive ecosystem for technological innovation through digital entrepreneurship and software startups. I will offer a few examples of interesting startups I visited and will finish with a discussion on the current status of the Brazilian startup ecosystem and what can be done to strengthen it.
