Building a successful science and technology startup is challenging, even in the most developed startup ecosystems. For entrepreneurs who are not in these ecosystems – entrepreneurs who have limited access to capital, a strong network, government and industry support, or limited infrastructure – creating a startup is even more challenging.

However, there are entrepreneurs who have been able to launch and scale startups despite these challenges. These entrepreneurs understood how to leverage their limited resources to solve problems in their ecosystems. In doing so, these entrepreneurs created unique opportunities that helped them grow.



Key topics:

  • Resources innovators in limited resource settings should be aware of
  • Funding resources available to innovators launching a non-profit
  • Using marketing campaigns with limited financial resources
  • Working with social impact organizations
