Exploring the secret to an Innovation Ecosystem with Victor Hwang


Today EYIF has the grand pleasure of hosting a young innovator – Victor Hwang – who has come all the way from US to Brussels as part of Hillary Clinton’s official visit to the EU. Victor is co-founder of T2 Venture Capital and Executive Director of the Global Innovation Summit. He is also an Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation Fellow, a Forbes columnist and the author of The Rainforest: The Secret to Building the Next Silicon Valley. We have invited 30 of the most prominent and updated young innovators and experts to have a live dialogue with Victor at our premises Science 14.  It’s our main goal to promote realistic, sustainable ideas and strategies in order to build innovation Ecosystems in Europe – similar to what Victor describes in his best seller “The Rainforest”. Are we going to discover the magic trick to liberate these anxious innovative minds around Europe? Or will we have to invent the key factors for the European Silicon Valley by our own? As usual we will keep the community updated. All you have to do is follow our live reporting on either Twitter or Facebook.
