Startup The Fusion is a two-day event created by a startup, for the startups, which aims to bring together the right mix of thinkers, doers and facilitators. Startup The Fusion is created in very close collaboration with the wunderkinds of Slush – the most important startup event in the Nordics.
Nordics will be the dominating theme throughout the event, which means nothing will be average or just “good enough”. Everything is designed to make sense and to be practical, in order to serve the startups and the ecosystem, as a whole. That’s because the entrepreneurs are our heroes. They are our football stars, and they deserve the attention and admiration of the society...

El fenómeno de la web 2.0, el desarrollo de la tecnología móvil y los smartphones, así como la mejora de las nuevas herramientas para el manejo de Internet han hecho que en los últimos años sean muchas las empresas que exporten a través de plataformas digitales. Tanto las pequeñas compañías que encuentran en las páginas web escaparates difíciles de lograr con una tienda física, como las grandes corporaciones que apuestan por la venta on-line como nueva línea de negocio, se han sumado a un modo de compra-venta que elimina fronteras pero que también presenta numerosas complejidades.
Casa de América, en colaboración con el IE Business School, se hace eco de este nuevo escenario y organiza el ciclo 'E-commerce: destino América' con el objetivo de desgranar el complejo pero prometedor futuro de la venta on-line.
Esta segunda sesión está dedicada al sector de los productos con denominación de origen, en el que se pueden analizar de manera relevante y significativa los alcances de estos nuevos formatos comerciales.

In Stockholm after last Saturday's Stockholm Start-Up Day I met up with Miki Kuusi, main organizer of Helsinki's Slush conference, to talk about the day's conference and the perceived differences between Stockholm and Helsinki's startup scene. Kuusi knows a thing or two about how Helsinki's scene has developed in recent years; during his tenure as president of Aalto Entrepreneurship Society, CEO at Startup Sauna, and a short time at Supercell, he's been one of the lead characters in the story that is today's Helsinki startup scene. And now, for the Arctic15 one month away, we're getting him up on stage in a different role, to give a talk about his experience in Helsinki and how startup scenes come together.

Editor’s note: this is the first editorial contribution from Jon Bradford, one of the co-founders of Tech.eu but also managing director of Techstars London and a world-renowned expert on startup accelerators.
Rather fittingly, it was published from the first ever Accelerator Assembly being held in Madrid today and organised by the European Commission in partnership with a number of stakeholders from all over the continent.
Like moths to a flame and with cyclical predictability, corporates are drawn to venture capital with very mixed results. And with equal predictability, most will subsequently retreat in order to focus on their core business...

Welcome to the biennial Internet, Politics, and Policy (IPP) academic conference series. Our 2014 conference will explore the new research frontiers opened up by Crowdsourcing for Politics and Policy. It aims to serve as a forum to encourage discussion across disciplinary boundaries on how to exploit crowdsourcing to inform policy debates and advance social science research.
CALL FOR PAPERS: IPP2014 - Crowdsourcing for Politics and Policy (abstracts by: 14 March 2014)
Convened by the Oxford Internet Institute (University of Oxford) and OII-edited academic journal Policy and Internet, and supported by the ECPR Standing Group on Internet and Politics, the conference will take place at the University of Oxford on 25-26 September 2014.
We call for papers on the observed and potential implications of crowdsourcing for politics, policy and academic practice. Perspectives are welcomed from across science, social science and the humanities, from the academic and policy-making communities. We aim to identify what is novel in crowdsourcing, and the ways it enables and extends existing social and political processes...

Ten years ago, the founders of the Indian School of Business, Hyderabad
articulated a vision that was as daunting to execute as it was simple to
state: to build a world-class business school in India.
The rest is history: within a decade the ISB grew from a start-up venture to globally top-ranked business school...
...What appeals most is Sinha's honesty. He readily accepts that ISB has succeeded beyond the expectations of its founders. And at the same time, admits that many of the early goals are yet to be reached. This candour makes the book an eminently readable one. And useful, too...
