- 06.12.2011 - 'Krakow - Europe's Silicon Valley' talk reacorded at TEDxKrakow 2011 now available


On 20.10.2011 Ramon Tancinco gave a talk called: "Krakow: Europe's Silicon Valley? Why not!" at TEDxKrakow event. Enjoy!



About the speaker:

.. the Head of Strategy and Business Development for Central and Eastern Europe for Cisco Systems. He will talk about Krakow and its potential to become a European Silicon Valley.


About the talk:

Former US Army Captain and now Head of Strategy Business Development for Central and Eastern Europe for Cisco Systems®, Ramon is deeply convinced of Kraków's potential to be a European Silicon Valley. Passionate about technology, entrepreneurship and Kraków (as well as farming, but that's another story), his energy and enthusiasm have helped bring public institutions, businesses and individuals together to work towards creating a more entrepreneur-friendly environment. There's a lot happening in Małopolska at the moment, yet there is still a lot to be done. What can we learn from successful start-up ecosystems such as Silicon Valley or Bangalore? And what attitudes and behaviours are we going to have to nurture (and overcome)?


Please see more about the event in here.
