It is well-known that globalization is here, is increasing, and will not go away. But for many people, globalization is a fuzzy concept, impeding understanding and dealing with it. This tallk will address several questions: Just what is globalization, anyway? How can I best deal with it? How is globalization impacting high-technology start-ups, and how can they turn globalization from a threat into an asset? Recent examples, both positive and negative, will be given from the start-up experiences of the speaker and others.
