Dr. Dasher was in Manila to give the keynote speech on July 6 at Slingshot MNL, a conference organized by the Philippine Department of Trade and Industry and APEC, before an audience of over 1,000 people.

Dasher’s talk on “The Role of Universities in Startup Ecosystem Development: What Are the Real Lessons from Stanford in Silicon Valley? ” highlighted some aspects often overlooked in discussions of entrepreneurship and innovation: labor force skills needed for high-growth startups, integration of fundamental research with practical problem solving, and the function of the university as a place for networking among people with different areas of expertise.
