Collavate 2013 (Manchester, December 11-12)
The International Collavate Conference is a World Smart Capital event to provide ideas and solutions how people, business, science, government, technology, and capital collaborate and innovate to create startups, to grow new business and to build entrepreneurial infrastructures in cities and accelerate urban innovation.
One of the World Smart Capital’s aims is that the WSC platform provides ideas and solutions about how startups and tech innovation are taking an urban turn. The World Smart Capital Initiative is partnering with the City of Manchester to help achieve this goal by providing insights and information on urban startup activity and the development of entrepreneurial infrastructures.
The first edition of the Collavate International Conference provides insights, trends, and profiles about how tech and digital innovation are taking an urban turn and how innovation-driven models such as (corporate and university) accelerators & incubators, science & technology parks, innovation areas, and innovative ecosystems are accelerating innovation.
More than 50 speakers and lecturers are being scheduled in a two day conference-program with plenary sessions, panel sessions, best practice sessions, case studies, conversations and brainstorm meetings. Best practices and business cases of accelerator and incubator programs, innovative ecosystem developments, science & technology parks, and innovation areas are invited to present their best case.
Collavate 2013 comprises the International Collavate Conference, the Collavate Accelerator Summit and the Collavate Awards.
