1 Building Effective Startup Ecosystems Presented by: Tim Rowe February 16, 2017

2 WHAT IS INNOVATION, REALLY?

3 Not innovation: water bicycle Never employed by society

4 Real innovation: hybrid electric engine To be real innovation, an idea must be used by society, at large scale

5 WHY SHOULD WE CARE ABOUT INNOVATION?

6 INNOVATION FIXES THE WORLD S PROBLEMS Example: DNA therapy

7 INNOVATION MAKES AN ECONOMY HEALTHY New Jobs Created by Startups vs. Existing Companies Japan must re-engineer its economy to create more new enterprises The Importance of Startups in Job Creation and Job Destruction, T. Kane, The Kauffman Foundation

8 HOW DOES INNOVATION HAPPEN?

9 IN THE PAST, INNOVATION HAPPENED LARGELY IN ISOLATION Nikola Tesla s lab in Colorado Springs

10 Walt Disney s garage

11 Hewlett and Packard s garage

12 Steve Jobs garage

13 Innovation works differently today

14 Innovators from different organizations work together, in central locations

15 Innovation Hubs create constant opportunities for innovators to teach each other

16 Innovation hubs allow young entrepreneurs to learn from experienced entrepreneurs

17 HOW CAN A SOCIETY BUILD A CULTURE OF INNOVATION?

18 You have to build innovation infrastructure to bring people together

19 THERE IS A SIMPLE FORMULA FOR FOSTERING INNOVATION

20 In innovation hubs, people connect, like amoebas

21 PROXIMITY IS THE KEY Frequency of Collaboration Is Principally Driven by the Distance Between Researchers office location % collaborating Same corridor 10.1% % Same floor 1.9% Different floor 0.3% Different building 0.4% Innovators must be physically close to each other in order to collaborate. Source: Kraut and Egido, Bell Communications Research, and Galegher, University of Arizona, 1988.

22 RESEARCH FINDING: NEARLY ALL RESEARCH IS DONE BY PEOPLE WORKING CLOSE TOGETHER The Distance Between Principal Authors is the Key Driver of Scientific Collaboration Proximity causes collaboration Source: Does Colocation Inform the Impact of Collaboration? (2010)

23 RESEARCH FINDING: THE QUALITY OF RESEARCH IS HIGHLY IMPACTED BY PROXIMITY Researchers Close to Each Other Produce Scientific Papers That Receive More Citations # of citations We believe the same patterns apply to startup innovation. Proximity is the key. Source: Collaboration: the mother of invention (2011)

24 In innovation hubs, entrepreneurs learn how to take risks

25 INNOVATION HUBS ARE NOT A NEW IDEA

26 109 Court St, Boston

27 Kendall Square in 1969

28 Kendall Square Today

29 We have helped transform Kendall Square into an innovation mecca

30 VENTURE CAPITAL HAS GROWN DRAMATICALLY SINCE KENDALL SQUARE BECAME AN INNOVATION HUB $14,000,000, X increase in VC in Kendall Square Half ($7B) based in CIC $100,000, Creating a dense cluster of startups attracts venture capital

31 Innovation in Massachusetts is now highly concentrated

32 SUCCESSFUL INNOVATION HUBS DRAW WORLD-CHANGING ENTREPRENEURS Android co-founder Rich Miner grew his team in Massachusetts hub RICH MINER, ANDROID

33 THE INNOVATION CONCENTRATION IN MASSACHUSETTS MAY HELP EXPLAIN ITS SUCCESS $458 $534 Avg investments per capita in CA vs. MA (last decade) The Bay Area has more startups and the venture capital that gives them life than any other U.S. metro region, but the study said entrepreneurs in Boston cite stronger connections with educational and other institutions locally as well as with everyday citizens. Those factors helped vault the Hub, which also has almost as much entrepreneurial capital, to No. 1. Source: The Global Cities Where Tech Venture Capital Is Concentrated, The Atlantic

34 AND THIS INNOVATION DISTRICT MODEL IS INCREASINGLY RECOGNIZED AS A SUCCESSFUL APPROACH TO SUPPORTING INNOVATION Who delivers innovation districts? Economic cultivators such as the Cambridge Innovation Center and social networking programmers, such as Venture Café Foundation. The newly constructed District Hall is the hub for Boston s Innovation District, facilitating networking and idea-sharing. CIC has helped develop the modern concept of coworking while encouraging entrepreneurs and startups in its high quality environment. Firms at CIC have attracted billions of dollars of seed funding and later-stage investment. Cambridge s Kendall Square is today s iconic innovation district.

35 Innovation hubs are attractive magnets for innovators

36 INNOVATION CAMPUS STARTUP CENTER SPECIALIZED INDUSTRY HUBS GOVERNMENT COMMUNITY PARTNERS GLOBAL CONNECTORS INNOVATION ECOSYSTEM CLUBHOUSE VENTURE CAPITAL FUNDS UNIVERSITIES LARGE TECH COMPANIES City of St. Louis PUBLIC INNOVATION HALL COMMUNITY BUILDING NON-PROFIT CORPORATES SMALL INDEPENDENT ACCELERATORS INNOVATION DISTRICT / CITY
