Future Business Ideas (FBI) 2020 – Digital Business Stories from Near and Far

Once upon a time, the digital era was a distant future. Today we are a global society driven by digital technology that cuts across every industry sector disrupting all kinds of businesses all over the world. As digital technologies redefine the way consumers engage and how businesses compete they force traditional businesses to adapt new ideas and revise the shelf-life of their products and services.

The rise of tech development is nothing new for leading capital market businesses that are already applying it in their day-to-day operations to enhance efficiency, monitor and reduce costs and pass on the benefits to their customers. However, the same technology also allows new and small entrants into a marketplace very quickly, wielding a disruptive power that some larger and more established organizations find is too fast for them to respond effectively. Corporates, small and medium enterprises(SMEs) and even startups today will have to respond to new tech-business competition challenges with much greater speed. Late adopters of new tech ideas cannot wait any further to see what happens next or how much it will impact their businesses.

At this conference, we present awe inspiring real-world stories of new business ideas and creative tech solutions, consider new business mind-sets, digital skill-sets and agile high-performance teams to grow new businesses and deliberate how a digital ecosystem can drive sustainably inclusive future business ideas towards a vision of shared prosperity
