The success of the New York Tech community – which is the subject of our book – is studied abroad by entrepreneurs, investors, scholars, and policy makers. It happens especially in Italy, where there are a lot of brilliant young people, including great engineers from the best “Politecnici”, who cannot find funding for their business ideas nor a regular job. However also in Italy things are changing thanks to many young people who are risking and building their own startups. What’s different and what is there in common between the NYC tech community and the Italian tech communities?
We’ll talk about that Monday, 23rd September 2013 at 6:00 p.m. @ the Italian Cultural Institute in New York, 686 Park Avenue. The Italian Scientists and Scholars in North America Foundation has organized the event. The panelist are, besides Maria Teresa: Riccardo Luna, founder of Wired.it and author of “Cambiamo tutto! the revolution of innovators”; Micah Kotch, Director of Innovation and entrepreneurship, Polytechnic Institute of New York University.
Thanks to Riccardo Lattanzi, Ass. Professor, New York University School of Medicine and co-chair ISSNAF NY Chapter, for organizing the event!
