As far back as two thousand years ago a series of trade routes connected East with West allowing not only the trading of goods but also the exchange of ideas, languages and cultures.
The Silk Roads transformed human societies allowing for the adoption of everything from paper to irrigation technologies across central Asia and eventually to Europe.
Much of the focus when is comes to startups today is on Silicon Valley or major European capitals however startup companies in the Middle East, Central Asia and China are developing innovative solutions to local problems and global challenges. We want to tell the story of these companies mapping the modern face of enterprise in the region where global connectivity was born.
Silicon Roads is an online platform featuring entrepreneurs from Italy to China sharing their ideas, experiences and insights. We will also be producing a series of short online films travelling along the ancient routes known as the Silk Roads meeting the founders and innovators continuing their legacy in the 21st century.
We’re a non-profit organisation and are currently raising sponsorship funding to make the platform possible. If you’re interested in partnering with us on this project or getting involved please contact us.
