Have you ever wondered how the rest of the world beyond silicon valley innovates?

In 2013, four cities had ever created a unicorn. Today over 150 have accomplished this feat.

And these aren’t just any startups. The largest edtech business in the world was built in India, the largest neobank in Brazil, the largest superapp in China and the largest robotic process automation company in Romania.

The paths to scale globally often look quite different than in Silicon Valley. In [99%Tech] you can find out how.

It is a monthly round-up of exciting developments as well as some specific deep dives on certain topics I find interesting. And it is free!

A bit about me: By day, I’m a global venture capitalist, and outside of work I teach entrepreneurship and am the author of Out-Innovate (HBR Press).

Excited for you to join the community and for your feedback.
