SNS launched in 2012 in Toronto, Canada, and has since been held in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia (2013); Seoul, South Korea (2014); Monterrey, Mexico (2015); and Cork, Ireland (2016). Tallinn is the official host city for 2017, thanks to the leadership of the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Communications of Estonia and Startup Estonia. Startup Nations is part of the Global Entrepreneurship Network (GEN). GEN co-hosts the Startup Nations Summit each year in late November as the official conclusion to Global Entrepreneurship Week. SNS organizers are keen to learn what all nations are focused on as we mutually work on new ways to help our new firms form and scale. If you are involved in policy and program efforts to better enable high growth entrepreneurship and are interested in an open exchange of ideas and insightful research and data to guide smarter policymaking, this event is for you.
