Village Capital draws on the power of peer support to build enterprises that change the world. Their worldwide presence allows the incubator to source, identify and nurture promising entrepreneurs on their way to making a big impact.

They say it takes a village to raise up a child, and think it works well also for entrepreneurs. Therefore they have created a space for entrepreneurs to work together and enhance each other’s potential. Nevertheless they found many challenges to address along the way: troubles with the peer selection process, building trust, setting goals.

The organization keeps learning through action to evolve with its participants. And that, is already the proof that it is a place worth looking at!

Available even in countries where the network is not necessarily working well, they push for everybody to participate. The prize of 1 000 000$ joyfully inspiring the world crowd to share.

Obviously, the company receives an incredible pull of qualitative data – what is more personal than dreams? – and will most certainly be able to transform that in careful sales. But at least they agree that people need to dream, they push for self-expression, and they do it very well!

Creative leadership has its center

By | Cartes Blanches, L.E.D, Mirror Network, Uncategorized | No Comments

Financial Times says the Center for Creative Leadership is one of the top 5 providers of executive education leadership courses. Many resources and trainings are available to help you address the most important questions and lessons regarding how to better lead your life, your team, your organization, positive change in the world.

It is better if you company can pay for it – usually the advice is always for all the members of the same team/organization to be trained by the same provider otherwise visions on skills such as leadership may differ and it becomes very difficult to make them cohabit – but it is certain that you will find a program that suits you.

A wide but sharp vision makes it a good opportunity

Singapore is speeding up fast on the innovation highway and isn’t afraid to show it and share it. Lately, innovation is everywhere and we know that our industrially-based systems need to evolve. We will have to catch a wagon to this future.

More and more options align and we should indeed think of joining the right crowd to move away from an automatized past not to risk to stay still in a blurred present. We could for example joint the Innovators Network or the Innovators Institute. Through events and trainings, they assemble a community of fast-paced innovators, across sectors, and offer you a ticket to ride.

Will you participate in incarnating this new wave and make things more concrete for others?

Innovation is Everywhere

Innovation is Everywhere, an exploration of startups in emerging markets
By 2020, 3bn new people will be online, mostly from emerging markets. In the same time, countries from South America, the Middle-East, Asia and Africa are recording amazing growth rates in both economics and demographics. And, just as in the US, Europe and China, entrepreneurship and startups are on the rise there too, providing jobs for young population, new businesses, and a reason for talent and money to move there.
Becoming a startup hub, regionally or globally, doesn’t happen overnight, and we roam the world to understand how different countries in the emerging world are fostering entrepreneurship and innovation. What are the best practices that make talent come to a country rather than an other one? How can tax incentives and visa policy help startups to grow? How to create a successful tech ecosystem putting in conversation tech giants, gov agencies, entrepreneurs and universities? What should be the place of government and where should it stop? 
By exploring and analysing each country’s strategy and tactics, we want to identify the ways a startup culture can grow in different conditions. We also identify in these emerging markets what the top startups are, who the connectors of the local tech scenes are and what are the pros and cons of setting a startup there. Today, cities, countries and regions all compete for talent, and it’s important to know what will be the next Silicon Valleys.
In 2013-2014, we have reported on 8 countries, and starting in August 2014, we’ll be covering 20 countries in all continents thanks a small team of fixers (in Nigeria, Lebanon, Portugal, Chile and Singapore), and add new products from our exploration. We act as a media, with most of what we see being published in articles accessible to anyone, and we provide custom research and services for companies and investors interested in fast-growing markets.
