#podcast: The Other Silicon Valleys of the World
Most of the startup news we hear about comes from Silicon Valley, California. But, the world is a big place—and there are startup scenes all over the world that are lesser known. For example, have you ever heard of Kharkiv, Ukraine? You may want to look it up—it’s one of the biggest exporters of software developers. In this podcast, KISSPatent’s very own (and very global) Partnership and Marketing Manager Jessica Erdman and D’vorah Graeser, KISSPatent CEO, discuss the global startup scene. They discuss the changing global startup scenes in the U.S, Eastern Europe, Japan, and Canada—and where you should seek funding if you’re not based in the U.S. They also offer insight on the future of the global startup scene, whether startups should look beyond their borders to maximize their chances of success, and how to effectively organize your startup if you’re looking to work with talent worldwide.
If you’re wondering whether you should keep your startup national, regional, or go global, this is the podcast for you! We discuss the pros and cons of taking your startup global, and the implications for your startup’s intellectual property. This episode is a “can’t-miss” for any startup in 2018!
