World-class experts, such as Neil Patel, Darin Olien, Jeff Abbot, Chris Yei, and Brad Feld, among others, also met to address the trends and diverse points of view for preparing the future of business:
Neil Patel, renowned author and one of the leading figures in Digital Marketing, outlined in the conference “How to become a successful entrepreneur in the new era with the new markets” the keys to taking advantage of the innovations being generated in digital marketing. SEO (Search engine optimization) is one of the key tools for this, since it makes it possible to generate traffic without requiring too many resources.
Brad Feld, early-stage investor and serial entrepreneur, shared in his conference “Independence of Mine and Other Lessons from Nietzsche” the knowledge he acquired in his over 30 years’ experience in the sector, addressing some of the points from his latest book, The Entrepreneur's Weekly Nietzsche, coauthored with Dave Jilk, considering the perspectives of this philosopher and inviting readers to reflection through our modern-day lens. A clear example of this is FAILURE: something that is seen as negative in today’s culture, but if we analyze it, failure is a key component for entrepreneurship, since it is indispensable for learning and improving.
Darin Olien, renowned speaker and presenter of the Netflix docuseries ‘Down to Earth with Zac Efron,’ provided in the presentation of his book “SuperLife: The 5 Simple Fixes That Will Make You Healthy, Fit, and Eternally Awesome” the keys to understanding and utilizing the sole factors that determine whether or not we will be healthy, fit, and free of illness. This innovative way of dimensioning health identifies five “life forces”: quality nutrition, hydration, detoxification, oxygenation and alkalization. Having a balance of these elements enables you to maintain a healthy weight, prevent even the most dangerous diseases, but, above all, feel great.
Georg Fuerlinger, Head of the Austrian Trade Commission Office in San Francisco, and Alan Wong, Director of the Silicon Valley Center for Global Studies, San José State University presented “Entrepreneurial ecosystem and connection strategies with Silicon Valley.” This conference, based on doctoral research, discussed the origins of the innovative capacity of Silicon Valley, and the strategies from a European perspective to connect and develop companies in the entrepreneurial ecosystem of this region, also known as the global capital of innovation.
INCmty is the key gathering for the Mexican and Latin American entrepreneurial ecosystem, connecting different agents from the sector with an active and open online community across the region.
