    BIFETE Spotlight Series: Distance Is Not Dead: Why A Few Cities Dominate the Global Startup Scene and What the Rest Should Do About It

    Register Full Details

    Distance Is Not Dead: Why A Few Cities Dominate the Global Startup Scene and What the Rest Should Do About It Presented by Babson College Lecturer Peter CohanWithin numerous articles and in his most popular book, NYT editorialist Thomas Friedman, proudly declared that the world is flat, and distance is dead. Is this really true? If so, then how would we explain the continual economic dominance of certain cities or regions? Right here in our own backyard, why do Boston and Cambridge lead the world in bio-pharma and medical technology ventures, when a mere 45 miles away Worcester is a startup desert? After investigating pairs of startup cities in countries around the world, Peter Cohan will explore and explain some answers, most notably why location is still so crucial for startup success. Cohan suggests that a region prospers or stagnates based on the strength or weakness of six elements which he will explore in depth during this session. While noting the role of luck, Cohan finds common patterns in the development of robust startup cities. This session will be of interest to entrepreneurs, investors and especially to policy officials and those charged with local or regional economic development. Cohan's work provides a springboard to boost local startup activity and the foundation for a potential road map to help start-ups grow and scale, while also drawing in capital providers to assist in scaling.
