Startup Nations Summit Underway in Cork

Policymakers, advisors and startup community leaders from more than 70 countries kicked off the 2016 Startup Nations Summit in Cork, Ireland today. It marks the first time that the gathering has been held in Europe – following previous summits in Toronto, Canada; Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia; Seoul, Korea; and Monterrey, Mexico.

The summit began with sessions led by Startup Nations and the Global Entrepreneurship Research Network to identify priorities for Ireland’s entrepreneurship ecosystem, as well as crowd-sourcing burning questions about how to best stimulate and support new firm formation.
