Innovation Across Borders is a Global Conference for Small & Medium Enterprises brought by MaRS Discovery District, National Research Council of Canada’s Industrial Research Assistance Program (NRC-IRAP), Foreign Affairs and International Trade Canada (DFAIT) and Technopolicy Network.
Innovation and trade are keys to growth and competitiveness for small and medium enterprises around the world. Yet many entrepreneurs are unfamiliar with the opportunities for innovation across borders and the good practices that mitigate the challenges of successful international business development.
The discussion will feature global insights, practical experiences, success stories and lessons learned from SMEs operating on over a dozen of the world’s mature and emerging economies.
The conference will be on February 24-25, 2011.
