We caught up with Dave McClure, founder and troublemaker at 500 Startups at Global Entrepreneurship Summit 2016 (GES 2016) at Stanford University. McClure has travelled extensively around the world and 500 Startups has invested in over 1,500 startups and we were curious to find out his views on entrepreneurship and if governments should be involved in fostering innovation and entrepreneurship.

500 Startups announced it is raising a $25 million micro fund to invest in Africa and is organizing its first Geeks on a Plan tour to Africa in 2017.

500 Startups is a Silicon Valley-based global seed fund and accelerator.
