#Boston is home to a vibrant startup ecosystem across many verticals, such as #cleantech, #biotech and #robotics.
In the nd #ecosystem#showcase talk we’ve learned how #startups, #researchers and #planners, found a common language and created one of the world’s leading tech hubs to date,… and how a multi-stakeholders approach supports the startup ecosystem to thrive.
The #leitmotifs of the discussion were opened community reach out come together to make a difference
Here are the most important #takeaways for the RO startup ecosystem growth:
geography of innovation is not even, as the worlds’ innovation is not flat, it’s spiky
it is important for Romania to understand the next #programming#period and make a change, #now is a #key#moment(!)
@Greenlabs -> we are here to serve the entrepreneurs
#climate #change is extremely important -> we need to make it a common goal to raise the issue of climate change globally
industry 4.0 – #green#industrial#revolution -> an inclusive revolution
#collaboration among startups, peer to peer connection -> entrepreneurs need to come together, pull resources to scale their companies
entrepreneurship is a lonely journey and founders need to have each other, share tools and techniques -> they need a safe space to test their ideas
the #investors#role is to spur ecosystem growth, to be available to help the entrepreneurs, to make sure entrepreneurs have the resources they need and the right mindset, that will attract the investors, to have the opportunity to share knowledge, to collaborate, not to keep findings to themselves
#internship programs in the #venture#firms to multiply the effect and attract students to different fields
