  • 20. Why European Entrepreneurship + Innovation @ Stanford ??
    • Why Europe and Silicon Valley?
      • A strong community of important entrepreneurs, investors, technology executives and researchers in Silicon Valley
        • Contributions are often neglected in Valley discussions about Asia and US
      • An emerging innovation region and community
        • Growing role in bringing new energy , environmental , water, information, medical devices and life sciences technologies to the global market 
      • Substantial challenges in Europe to rapidly moving technical innovations developed in universities, national laboratories and corporations into the marketplace
      • Europe is increasingly looking to domestic entrepreneurship — and Silicon Valley — to accelerate economic growth and build a new generation of innovative technology corporations
        • European regions are taking the lead here in many cases – not well understood in the US
    • Why Stanford?
      • Complements and expands current School of Engineering teaching programs on Silicon Valley and Asian high tech entrepreneurship
      • Large community of European, Asian, overseas and US engineering & medical students, professors, postdocs and staff with sustained interest in Europe
      • Overseas Studies Program (OSP) centers in 6 European countries
        • Berlin, Florence, Madrid, Moscow, Oxford, Paris – 250+ undergraduate students/year study in Europe !!
      • “ Comparative entrepreneurship and innovation systems ” provides interesting new approach
        • Extends dialogue about “pure” entrepreneurship into broader perspective around “innovation ecosystems”
      • Strong interest at Stanford Engineering in expanding research collaborations, funding sources and profile outside the US
