Summary

In this episode, we hear from Alexandre Lazarow, VC at Cathay Innovation, and author of ‘Out-Innovate: How Global Entrepreneurs — from Delhi to Detroit — Are Rewriting the Rules of Silicon Valley’, on the key aspects of the global entrepreneurial landscape and innovating at the frontier.

Alex throws light on how the entrepreneurs from frontier markets are reinventing startup best practices and offering a brand new playbook for innovation that looks different from that of startups in the valley.

The podcast centers around the shift of innovation from the silicon valley to the global playground. Alex talks about the incredible stories of entrepreneurs in emerging markets who maneuver challenging environments to build resilient sustainable businesses that create large social impact.
