About this event

As Mihir Shukla put it in the November 2019 Forbes Magazine “ we are witnessing the dawn of an age where technology is not only making lives of shoppers and gamers a wonderland, but it’s also making the businesses that provide the things we buy more effective and profitable. If you do not have the technological advantages of digital natives, you would be what is now referred to as a legacy company”. If you remain a legacy company, your days are numbered and the clock is ticking!

With the COVID19 lockdown experience, we have been forced to rely on technology, which replaced face-to-face communication and interactions. Technology is a great equalizer when it comes to the experience and expertise of “experts”. To keep up with modern developments and be ahead of the game, businesses should embrace a culture of innovation to bring new ideas and processes forward. When technology is created by people and for the people, its higher order purpose is not to just improve business performance but to improve people’s lives. Technology must help create a world in which people thrive. This must be the democratic state of technology!

Please join us for a fireside chat with Jay….. who is going to explore how small and medium businesses can leverage on technology for innovation and to improve operations.
