2011 Silicon Flatirons Annual Mile High Tech Entrepreneurship Conference: Going International

Global trends suggest that emerging companies which focus solely on domestic considerations may be missing large markets and, perhaps, operating at their peril. Internet adoption world-wide, and especially in developing countries, is spawning a global start-up generation where innovation, market opportunities, and copy-cat threats span the globe. Internet usage is increasingly international. An estimated 240 million Americans are now Internet users. Meanwhile, another 521 million people are Internet users in China, Brazil and India combined. Each of these three emerging countries feature annual growth in Internet user adoption rates which are 4 to 7 times those in the United States. International aspects of entrepreneurship are no longer quaint stories of isolated economic development or matters of outsourcing mundane tasks. Rather, international considerations are increasingly critical for a start-up.
