Startups are a catalyst for economic growth both globally and locally. The value that startups create is nearly on par with the GDP of a G7 economy and the amount of startup funding in 2021 surpassed $600 billion, shattering funding records. The number of unicorns is well past the 1,000 mark and growing exponentially.

We asked the CEOs of Global Innovators and Technology Pioneers, the Forum's communities of high growth innovative startups, for their views on how they are helping to drive economic recovery while scaling up sustainably and responsibly.
