What’s Next for the Technovate Era? Technology and Innovation (G1 Global 2019)
G1 Global Conference @GLOBIS Tokyo, Sept. 16, 2019.
With the emergence of new technologies, diverse “Silicon Valleys” are popping up all around the world, from China to the US and Israel to Southeast Asia. What is the driving force behind these hotbeds of innovation? How are unicorns transcending national borders to go global? As tech startups play a more prominent role in society, the old mindset (coined by Facebook) to “move fast and break things” seems less appropriate. Companies are expected to bear increasing responsibility for data management, sustainable business models, and job opportunities. What are the social and economic ramifications for Technovate entrepreneurs? Our panelists will discuss best practices they have witnessed in their respective markets, as well as what society can do to ensure that Technovate wealth is shared by all.
