Emerging Technologies

We live in an era of unprecedented technological change – the era of the “fourth industrial revelation”. Emerging technologies, in a wide variety of industry verticals, are not only creating new industries, they are revolutionising the way other established companies do business. Smart technologies and AI are transforming sectors and creating exciting new opportunities. The rise of e-commerce has transformed the relationship between business and consumer. More recently, the proliferation of blockchain technology and cryptocurrencies promise to revolutionise the way we think of money, contracts and translations. Above all, emerging growth companies place tech at the heart of their business model. They seize on innovation as opportunities to improve their products and offerings, making them smarter, more integrated, scalable and accessible. And while these enterprises are destined to create unforeseen opportunities for themselves and the world, they also operate in one of the nuanced and fast-paced business environments imaginable. There are the pressures of getting to market first, competition for funding, rapid research and development, a race to monetization, global work forces and competitors, the challenges of fast followers, and many other dynamics to name a few.
