Video: Open Source Entrepreneurship

DoESLiverpoolsquareA Fringe Event of the Global Entrepreneurship Congress, Open Source Entrepreneurship looked at ways entrepreneurs have found to mutually aid each others businesses for the good of all.
Especially in the technology sector, but across the start-up scene in general, Entrepreneurs are coming together to share commercial understanding. This is because business owners recognise they are more likely to thrive in the company of a strong local industry than they are in isolation. By assisting the growth of your competitor, you are adding value to your own company.
The session took place last week at Liverpool University's Business Incubation Unit and explored this reality in the context of Liverpool, the North West and the 'Silicon Roundabout' in London. From Hacker spaces, to Lean Start-up Groups to Unconferences, technology sector businesses are creating the basis of their own success from within their own culture. A panel of industry experts considered what we are doing for ourselves, and how best to improve on what already is proving so useful. Practical tips, utopian dreaming and a solid networking opportunity for all bootstrapping entrepreneurs out there.
Supported by Liverpool Vision, LJMU OpenLabs and Liverpool Science Park. Organised by Digital Creativity in Disability, DefNet Media and DoES Liverpool.
Open Source Entrepreneurship is part of our GEC 2012 series of events
