Why Cities are Competing for Top Tech Talent

PRESENTED ON DEC 01, 2015
IN SAN ANTONIO @ VOL 20
David Heard is sadly accustomed to his technologist friends moving away from San Antonio. The tech scene is too small, they say. The landscape is too suburban. Is our city just going to be a nice place to retire? Or can San Antonio become a place young, educated, highly coveted professionals aspire to live in, the kind of place where the world’s talent decides to build their careers? To do this, he believes we must fight out fierce competition from other cities and attract top tech talent. To understand why tech talent is the key to a strong future, David Heard outlines how technology and tech jobs are fundamentally transforming cities and their economies.

Talent Garden

BY FRANCESCO CRICCHIO
@ VOL 7 ON NOV 21, 2013

Francesco Cricchio presenta Talent Garden:

Siamo un team (Francesco Cricchio, Marco Franciosa, Elisabetta Migone, Alessandro Ivaldi) multidisciplinare di ingegneri, fisici e esperti di innovazione e media che sta sviluppando il progetto del Talent Garden nel parco scientifico tecnologico degli Erzelli per creare un ecosistema dove le menti brillanti e creative della citta’ possano dare vita a idee innovative.

In un giardino le varie piante germogliano e crescono tutte insieme creando un ambiente meraviglioso, dove tutti gli elementi collaborano e competono allo stesso tempo, e si contaminano l’un l’altro facendo, di un giardino ben riuscito, un vero e proprio ecosistema. Questo è TAG (Talent Garden): un ecosistema dove menti brillanti e creative, piene di entusiasmo e di passione, di coraggio e di fantasia, possano aiutarsi e competere allo stesso tempo; sfidarsi e
collaborare, confrontarsi e contaminarsi in modo “naturale”, e, quasi naturalmente, dando consistenza ed humus imprenditoriale ad un ambiente nel quale, dai boccioli di nuove idee, potranno fiorire e crescere nuove piantine, nuove aziende che avranno il terreno migliore per poter crescere, svilupparsi e diventare grandi. Banalmente definito CoWorking, il modello di Talent Garden mira non solo alla condivisione degli spazi di lavoro ma, attraverso una serie di eventi e iniziative, a raccogliere tutto ciò che germoglia all’interno di un territorio per svilupparlo tra persone che hanno interessi simili, stimolandone la collaborazione e creando un vero “PASSION WORKING SPACE”.

The Mystery of Economic Growth

BY IBRAHIMA SORY KABA
@ VOL 24 ON DEC 09, 2014

Taking a closer look at the example of China, Ibrahima Sory Kaba examines the huge discrepancy in standards of living throughout the world and the factors affecting the sustainability of economic growth.
