Incubate 2.0: Uniting Global Entrepreneurs
Oct 12, 2010
Around the world so many people are involved in so many ways to help entrepreneurs. But there is no easy way for entrepreneurs or organizations to learn about what is being done where. And there is no easy way for the local leaders of entrepreneurial organizations to learn what they need to know, which is how to increase their impact in their markets by improving their offering, and how to expand their reach.
Incubate 2.0 -- scheduled to occur in San Francisco on November 17 & 18, 2010, during Global Entrepreneurship Week -- is a step to address these challenges. This event is being produced by StartupCause, an organization enabling knowledge-sharing for entrepreneurial organizations - in exclusive partnership with HP Startup Central, the new HP program to support entrepreneurs.
Incubate 2.0 is an opportunity to build on the momentum from existing initiatives and to share practices that are tried-and-true, as well as uncover and develop the emerging platforms and infrastructures in the entrepreneurial community.
So what can you expect?
Day 1 - The new business of business
What is being done where and how?
The first day of Incubate 2.0 includes illuminating presentations and expert panels where you will learn how the process of growing startups has changed.
We’re talking new networks, new education, new money, and what kind of organizations are supporting these new processes.
You will hear from leaders of initiatives from around the world who will tell us what they’re doing - what works and what doesn’t work, and what we can learn from this.
Plus what benefits are entrepreneurs receiving from these existing programs and what else they need to boost entrepreneurship in their local context.
Day 2 - Knowledge sharing and scalability
How to have a massive and global impact on entrepreneurship?
The second day of the conference is “Open Space” day where the agenda will be decided on-site. This is similar format to Barcamp if you are more familiar with this.
This format allows you, the audience to choose who you want to hear from, and what topics you want to see covered and it can lead to incredible insights and outcomes.
The goal of these discussions is to draw the lessons learned from the first day, and to discuss next steps to improve knowledge sharing: what can be done short and long term to promote a culture of entrepreneurship and create massive impact on a global scale.
