Dr Sami Mahroum and his team have been investigating the conditions that have led to the emergence and success of international technological start-ups in places outside the US that are generally considered to be less favourable for start-up activity. In some of these cases, the founders of the start-ups moved from regions with favourable conditions for start-ups to places that are less favourable. The list include, among others, the case of Skype in Estonia, SoundCloud in Berlin, Rovio in Finland, Maktoob in Jordan and Sofizar in Lahore. Dr Mahroum will share the findings from this qualitative research and reflect on the policy implications for governments concerned with encouraging entrepreneurship and start-up activity”.
