Innovation: What Happens in Budapest Stays in Budapest?

A session at SXSW Interactive 2011

Tuesday 15th March, 2011

9:30am to 10:30am (CST)

In theory, with global brands, instant communication and efficient markets, innovative sites in one country should be quickly copied in others. But cultural idiosyncrasies, language barriers and entrepreneurial egos often conspire to limit the diffusion of innovation. This panel looks at the web culture in Hungary, a European innovation hub, to evaluate its web imports and exports. Are entrepreneurs overlooking opportunities for innovation arbitrage between countries?
