Title: Next Generation Entrepreneurs: Reaching Newer Heights

Information Technology and the Internet dramatically disrupted markets, changed business and personal processes, and turned entrepreneurs into folk heroes/heroines. These technologies not only created a tsunami-like surge in entrepreneurship in their domains but also catalyzed entrepreneurial something in other domains. Twenty years later, the face of the entrepreneur is very different than it was when this surge began. This session highlights the challenges of the current generation of entrepreneurs and seeks to discover catalysts that will assure greater success rates.

  • ·         Kirk Coburn: Founder and Managing Director, SURGE Accelerator
