With the participation of Fernanda Cahen and Anne Miroux, editors of the book From Copycat to Leaders: Innovation from Emerging Markets.

In the past 15 years, emerging markets (EM) have come to represent the largest share of global Gross Domestic Product (GDP) and made gains in economic development and political influence; in turn, their companies have taken on a new level of importance in driving innovation, local development and global competition. We want to invite a conversation about diverse types of innovation in emerging markets and present some findings of the book From Copycat to Leaders: Innovation from Emerging Markets.

Presented in collaboration with Emerging Multinationals Research Network (EMRN): Emerging Markets Institute, Cornell University; Facultad de Administración Universidad de los Andes; Universidad de São Paulo; Faculdade de Engenharia Industrial; Universidad de San Andrés; Consejo Nacional de Investigaciones Científicas y Técnicas; Tecnológico de Monterrey
