About the Startup Nations Summit

What is the Startup Nations Summit?

The Startup Nations Summit gathers a network of entrepreneurship policy shapers from around the world to identify, test and track innovative policy levers and smart public sector driven programs for new and young businesses.

Following SNS Toronto in 2012, SNS Kuala Lumpur in 2013, SNS Seoul in 2014, SNS Monterrey in 2015, and SNS 2016 in Cork in 2017, Startup Nations members will meet in Tallinn, Estonia.

At the sixth edition of SNS, Startup Nations members will continue their work to unearth and evaluate new effective policy levers and public sector-driven programs that are making an impact in advancing entrepreneurial growth around the world.
