The following is an excerpt from a recent interview I conducted with StartupFestival.com discussing business, entrepreneurship and opportunity in developing countries.
The International Startup Festival is a 3-day event July 11-13, all about the business of Startups. Held in the historic Old Port of Montreal, Canada, the event brings together industry veterans and fresh new faces, creative thinkers, experienced entrepreneurs and technologists from around the world. This year’s speakers include people like Dave McClure (500Startups), Liza Kindred (Third Wave Fashion), Cindy Gallop (IfWeRanTheWorld.com), Graham Hill (TreeHugger.com) and many more.
I’ll be speaking at Startup Fest giving an inside glimpse into how data platforms are changing nations, and how this vision of human and machine collaboration is driving a new generation of tools to cope with today’s information flood.
