InnovationWhen someone says ‘innovation’, we instinctively think ‘Silicon Valley’, or perhaps ‘London’, ‘Berlin’, ‘Stockholm’, ‘Tel Aviv’.

Rarely do we consider the vast amounts of creative energy re-shaping economies and driving growth in the developing world.

On March 3rd 2016, over 55 startups from emerging tech hubs globally will compete at Seedstars Summit in Lausanne, Switzerland, for equity investment of up to $1 million.

Last week I caught up with Alisée de Tonnac, Co-founder and CEO of Seedstars World, to talk about her entrepreneurial journey and the key startup trends in emerging markets. You can listen to our conversation above.

Alisée is a brilliant speaker on entrepreneurship, startup culture, tech trends and disruption in growth markets, as well as diversity issues in business.
