About the Speech:
Professor Isenberg will specify practical principles and methods for public and private leaders and policy makers to create sufficient quantities of entrepreneurship to contribute to sustainable economic growth in their regions.
Based on his 30 years' experience as entrepreneurship researcher, educator and author; government advisor; venture capitalist and angel investor; and entrepreneur in Israel, the US, and other countries, Professor Isenberg will address some of the following questions:
- What form of entrepreneurship is the most socially and economically important?
- How much entrepreneurship is sufficient to create a virtuous cycle of successful entrepreneurship and successful entrepreneurship ecosystem?
- What is the entrepreneurship ecosystem strategy and what difference does it make?
- How to avoid key mistakes public and private leaders make in entrepreneurship policy development?
- Why are economic cluster strategies frequently ineffective and even detrimental?
- Why is innovation not essential for entrepreneurship?
