  With easier access to funding, technology and mentorship, the barrier to launching a startup has never been lower and the number of new companies reflect this trend. How is the proliferation of new companies begun with a fraction of the investment of a decade ago affecting the venture investment model, the availability of talent, the quality of companies, products and leadership, and the emergence of entrepreneurial ecosystems on other shores? Is more better--or just more? This conversation will explore industry trends and their implications with a distinguished and diverse group of speakers.
