Starts-Ups: Unleashing Human Potential: Gary Fowler at TEDxAAS


Published on

Most venture capital companies underperform or fail. Most startup accelerators use the "spray and pray" approach and also fail. Why would developing countries copy outdated paradigms? Gary Fowler enchants the TEDxAAS audience with a proven paradigm that significantly impacts a startup's success.

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
