NEW YORK, June 24, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Governments around the world have made it a priority to spark entrepreneurship and innovation-led growth. But there is little consensus about how governments and the private sector can best work together to bring about such growth. This conference will link science, business and policy-making by exploring the role of governments and the private sector in financing innovation. 

The conference brings together representatives from three paradigmatic jurisdictions - France, Israel and the United States - to compare different approaches taken by leading countries on innovation policy. Leading investors and entrepreneurs from each country will explore how the private sector responds to and builds upon these government policies to bring tomorrow's promising technologies to market.  This dialogue will help to surface best practices across countries, businesses and policies, and lay a foundation for continued engagement about how best to harness law and capital to promote innovation for economic growth.
