Abstract

As developing economies grow and become more connected, new and exciting entrepreneurial opportunities arise across markets and industries.

Despite this fertile ground for new endeavors, success not only requires a unique technology fit but great execution in adverse environments. This case includes three vignettes featuring Latin American robo-advising platform, Alkanza, Indian AI-enabled medical device startup, Sigtuple and emerging Turkish Venture Capital firm, ScaleX. It describes the unique opportunities and distinct challenges of applying deep technologies in developing economies through the eyes of three groups of entrepreneurs scaling technology-based endeavors.
