Stanford GSB Designed Entrepreneurship Curriculum - EMBARK supports LISA Designed Digital Incubation Platform
Traditionally, Capital and talent to launch startups were centralized in Silicon Valley. However, the pandemic has caused this to change.
Mass migration from cities and innovative remote working tools have globalized innovation.
We believe The next generation of unicorn companies will be built remote-first and come from diverse distributed teams bringing their perspectives together to solve the complex problems of right now and tomorrow. LISA enables that interaction through its in-house created Digital Incubation Platform.
LISA is highly committed to increasing entrepreneur diversity, and inclusive tech and facilitation ecosystem, and we are an action-driven leader in this work. The goal is to create equitable access to network & education for underrepresented entrepreneurs and pair them together with the represented world to transform the entrepreneurial ecosystem together. Because we believe more innovations will be created in more countries and industries over the next decade than in the previous 50 years. Many that offer the potential to solve global issues will fail to reach the markets that need them the most.
LISA brings you the tools, network, and expert insights to succeed in startup business ventures anywhere around the world with just a laptop and internet access.
