• Summary

  • The Ecosystem Show is a weekly audio world tour exploring entrepreneurial ecosystems around the globe. Open innovation depends on a thriving ecosystem, and we’re here to show you what that looks like in some very different places! Each week, guided by a small group of local stakeholders, we investigate the history, current state, superpowers and challenges of a specific region.

    Diana Joseph, Silicon Valley Innovation Consultant and CEO of the Corporate Accelerator Forum, ground zero for open innovation AND Mikel Mangold of NGK Venture Labs, based in Germany.

    How did we get here? We wrote a paper on entrepreneurial ecosystems with Susan Windham-Bannister, leader of the 1B fund behind the development of the famous life sciences hub in Boston. Sue’s story made us curious about other ecosystems and sent us out to explore the world!

  • The Ecosystem Show: Tel Aviv

    Sep 29 2021

    Everyone knows that Tel Aviv is an international hotbed of entrepreneurial activity.  

    Our guides Itai Green, Benny Shlick, Zohar Pernat, Ofer HaCohen and Adi Mazor Kario helped us understand how government support, army service, and social generosity work together to move from a Startup to a Scaleup Nation.  

    Don’t forget about the importance of chutzpah, roughly translated as positive pushiness. Israel is the final episode of Ecosystem Show Season One -- we’ll be back in Fall 2021 with Season Two.  Enjoy!

  • The Ecosystem Show: Tanzania

    Sep 21 2021

    We learned about the startup ecosystem in Tanzania on July 19 of 2021, guided by Jumanne Mtambalike,  Paul Makanza, Salum Awadh, and Praygod Japhet.  

    The ecosystem in Tanzania is really coming together.  At least in part that’s because the stakeholders are seeing how their needs are interdependent -- for example, investors need seed companies at the same time that talented individuals are looking to entrepreneurship to expand their opportunities beyond the traditional job market.

  • The Ecosystem Show: Bulgaria

    Sep 10 2021

    Our Bulgaria episode was recorded on Clubhouse on July 12, 2021.  Our guides were Rosen Dmitrov from Novartis, Milena Stoycheva, the CEO of JA Bulgaria, Alexander Alexiev of SAT Health, and Ivan Lekushev of BGO Software.  

    They’re part of a rising data-driven healthcare system in Bulgaria, and they’re betting that an entrepreneurial ecosystem is the way to get there. 

    Listen in to hear what inspired them and how they’re thinking about the ecosystem of ecosystems!
