Out-Innovate the Pandemic

How to raise camels over unicorns in a drought


Over the past few decades, Silicon Valley has codified what a startup should look like, dictated how it should be built, and defined what its culture should be. However, the Silicon Valley model doesn’t work everywhere, and has even shown cracks at home. The world of innovation needs a refresh, and now is the time to do it.


In OUT-INNOVATE: How Global Entrepreneurs–from Delhi to Detroit–Are Rewriting the Rules of Silicon Valley Alex Lazarow reveals that revolution is already well under way at the Frontier, outside the most-developed startup ecosystems, where entrepreneurs are out-innovating their Silicon Valley counterparts.


The pandemic has revealed how Silicon Valley’s focus on breeding unicorns has failed; Silicon Valley’s blasé approach of moving fast and breaking things is not tolerable when acceptance of risk is lower and the consequences of failure are high. Frontier Innovators raises camels that can capitalize on opportunity but also survive a drought. They do not focus on growth at any cost, but sustainability and resilience. Frontier Innovators manage risk, build customer trust, and formalize their industries.
