Tech entrepreneurship is spreading throughout Asia’s innovation hotspots. The region’s advanced mobile communications and Internet markets, wealth of talented and motivated entrepreneurs and solid government support for advanced technologies all make Asia a world leader in disruptive breakthroughs. The trend has spanned now to biotech and cleantech as well. Venture capital investment has arrived in a big way too, and is helping Asian startups get to the next level and go IPO on NASDAQ and the NYSE.
