The world’s leading economic centers, such as Silicon Valley, New York and London, continue to dominate investors’ attentions. However, new arrangements in specific sectors such as finance, digital security and blockchain solutions have arisen, according to a study titled Global Startup Ecosystem 2018. To discuss this subject, FGV IDE – Executive Education is holding a webinar about “Innovation and Entrepreneurship Ecosystems in Brazil and Across the World” on February 13, at 11:30 am.

In particular, it will showcase tools for evaluating and investing in startups, and prospects for corporate venture growth in Brazil and across the world. It will also examine open innovation methodologies applied to companies such as 5Cs and 5Is, as well as tools related to engagement, innovation process management and indicators.
