As the world is increasingly interconnected, wealth and ideas have more opportunities to travel anywhere, and borders between countries that we are accustomed have become increasingly blurry.The key actors in this newly connected world are those who have taken advantage of the ability to attract talented people, who encourage them to share and try new ideas, and attract organizations with all resources for their development and knowledge necessary.It is known that this works best at a regional scale, as evidenced by the most successful and known case of this innovation cultivation broth, Silicon Valley.Only at this level is possible to address all aspects of innovation, both through contact with entire institutions and through treatment with individual people and companies, all without ceasing to be relevant at national level.

What you will learn

In an opinion we want to identify the most promising regions while they are in an embryonic phase and turn them into the engine of its growth.For this, we must not only understand how these regions work, but also identify the main key factors that make the world's main innovation ecosystem work at the highest level of innovation.

In this context, since you have decided to study a sample of the most innovative ecosystems that have arisen in different contexts, with the aim of drawing conclusions about its strengths, how they have been and the best practices they used could translate into other regions.For this task, we unite forces with ESCP ECP ESCP students and IED Madrid (European Institute of Desño).Ultimately, we seek to open new paths in Europe and in Hispanic countries, becoming the “New Silicon Valley”.For this, we analyze the local context, we adapt the best practices to the particular strengths that we find and we allocate with strong and consolidated partners, since they only have the ability to leverage the investment necessary for a company of this type and to ensure a stronggrowth.
