What Matters in Innovation: The Future of Technology Hubs

By Kaitlin Milliken |  August 6, 2021

What matters in innovation as we move into the fall? KPMG International’s Alex Holt, Global Head for Technology, Media, and Telecommunications, discusses a recent report on global innovation hubs. In a recent survey of 800 executives conducted by KPMG, 39 percent of respondents said tech hubs are still important for big companies, and 61 percent said their views of important tech cities had changed. Emerging hubs include Singapore, Tel Aviv, New York City, and Beijing. 


InnoLead CEO Scott Kirsner kicks off the conversation. Derisk CEO Alex Slawsby and MileZero Founder Robyn Bolton also share their thoughts. The group also discusses trends related to the post-COVID return to the office. 


Kirsner also mentions InnoLead’s recent podcast on venture capital with insights from Hemant Taneja, one of venture’s power players. (Note: KPMG is a current InnoLead sponsor, and has sponsored IL research, but Holt joins us as an editorial guest for this video.)
