Bowei Gai, Founder of the World Startup Report, is a serial entrepreneur renowned for founding Cardmunch and selling it to LinkedIn. Before that, he founded Snapture Labs and played very cool roles with some of the giants of Silicon Valley, such as Apple Computer, Oracle,
He sold his business to LinkedIn in 2011 and is now traveling around the world to find the next Silicon Valley, along with the help of Valley heavy-weights Dave McClure of 500 Startups and Brad Feld of the Foundry Group.
About the World Startup Report: Gai and a small team of Silicon Valley entrepreneurs will travel to 29 different countries in the next nine months. There, they will assess the startups, founders, “big players,” the challenges locals face, and the culture of that region to create a report on what it’s like to start a company there. “The people traveling with me are some of the best in the industry,” said Gai in an interview with VentureBeat. “There’s no one else you can trust, no one else is doing this. I’m the person who’s willing to go out of my way and … do this.” The reports will serve as a guideline to entrepreneurs all over the world, with information about what kinds of people there are there, investment opportunities, and how the culture perceives startups.
