Out-Innovate: How Global Entrepreneurs–from Delhi to Detroit–Are Rewriting the Rules of Silicon Valley

Alexandre “Alex” Lazarow

Harvard Business Review Press, 2020, 304 Pages

Summary

In Silicon Valley innovation happens because of a robust and supportive “ecosystem,” a highly skilled labor pool, and an emphasis on fast growth companies. Lazarow writes about rising innovation in other parts of the world led by what he calls “Frontier Innovators.” He outlines the differences in how these innovators are approaching their work and the standard innovation success story. The book is filled with copious examples from around the world. It explains how, in a very different environment, labor, funding, strategy, and organization of entrepreneurial efforts are growing on a global scale.
