Off the Beaten (Entrepreneurial) Path

Most of us know the entrepreneurial success stories of places like Silicon Valley, the Research Triangle, and Boston. But if great ideas are everywhere, why aren’t entrepreneurial businesses thriving worldwide, in places large and small? What can we do to promote entrepreneurship in unusual places, and make sure the prosperity-creating and problem-solving power of entrepreneurs is fully leveraged in Allentown or Accra, as well as in Austin? Simone Wai, Co-Founder and Community-Builder of Folkways and a 2018 Aspen Ideas Festival Scholar, will also be joining this panel.

Festival: 2018
