SINGULARITY UNIVERSITY WEBCAST & LIVE CHAT WITH VIJAY VAITHEESWARAN, INTERNATIONAL CORRESPONDENT FOR THE ECONOMIST AND AUTHOR OF NEED, SPEED, GREED IN CONVERSATION WITH SU VP of ACADEMICS & INNOVATION, VIVEK WADHWA

It seems like a really difficult time to be an entrepreneurial innovator in America. Has VC capital grown risk averse? Is America losing the innovation race to China and others? What is the proper role for governments and where should incentives be offered to meet current global challenges? On May 9th, Singularity University hosted Vijay Vaitheeswaran, international correspondent for The Economist, now based in China, on Which Way Next? — SU’s webcast from Silicon Valley accompanied by a live chat with audience members. Vijay discussed his new best-selling book, Need, Speed Greed with Vivek Wadhwa, VP, Academics and Innovation at Singularity University, and told us why, thanks to the democratization and globalization of innovation, and the rise of the information economy, new ideas move to market faster than ever before – and companies must be allowed to tap freely into the brainpower of billions of innovators.

Singularity University’s Which Way Next? webcast series is produced live on the campus of Singularity University and sponsored by VentureBeat, a media company covering amazing technology and why it matters in our lives.
