\\\ WARNING /// Disruptive thinking ahead

Written by Julie Meyer on Tuesday, 16 June 2015.

I am an observer. This is the way I approach the world. I've been thinking the thoughts that I'm going to share with you for eight years, and I keep on trying to refine the thesis to find out whether or not I'm smoking dope. I keep having conversations with smart entrepreneurs and investors, because, one day, someone might tell me something that I've observed incorrectly. If I've made a mistake or I need to refine my thesis, I will be open-minded. Yet, to be honest, the opposite is happening. The market is approaching where I've been. I understand how digital disruption is affecting traditional, non-tech businesses and the vital role digital enablers can play in helping them build digital revenues.

Expert Talks: Should we be afraid of a new Tech Bubble?

Written by Clara Hosshage on Monday, 15 June 2015.

More money is flowing around in the market, going from investors to start-ups and back again – fuelling our global economy. However, voices of concern have been raised that we are heading towards a new tech bubble, far more extensive than the one that burst in the early 2000s. With a all-time high tech stock prices and private tech start-ups' valuation is also hitting astonishing highs, perhaps it's reasonable to be a little apprehensive. On the other hand, even if one believes that these companies may be temporarily overvalued, they are still making real revenue and the economy is shifting in their direction regardless of the economic cycle. The issues that many are currently debating are whether the compound to high valuations are indeed justified, as the companies will go on to achieve unprecedented growth, whether the companies are hugely overvalued and will eventually lead to the "bubble bursting" or whether the valuations will simply be corrected by the market over time.

Are we facing TechBubble 2.0?

Written by Dr Gordon Fletcher on Tuesday, 09 June 2015.

As the valuations for technology companies continue to soar speculation about a new TechBubble has become an almost inevitable reaction. Through their most recent actions the largest search and social media companies have done little to ease this sense of high risk speculative investment. While Google and Facebook as well as Twitter are prepared to remain innovative by buying up smaller competitors with their seemingly limitless cheque books, the claims regarding a TechBubble will persist.

Forget “Big Data”, it’s all about Big Relevance

Written by Prof. Steven Van Belleghem on Friday, 08 May 2015.

Most people in business will have heard the phrase "Big Data" over the last couple of years. It is the buzz word of the moment, as leaders have woken up to the power and value of data, especially as so many companies go through their own digital transformation.

Strangely, however, levels of investment in data management don't currently seem to reflect this buzz, and a study by McKinsey showed only half of the top managers questioned thought that their company's current level of investment in big data was enough to guarantee the success of their transformation. So what should companies really be doing to make the most of "Big Data"?

The digital healthcare industry: a prognosis

Written by Bryn Sage on Tuesday, 31 March 2015.

Right now, we are on the cusp of a digital revolution in healthcare. In today's digital age, technology has altered virtually every aspect of our society and our daily lives. We shop online, we bank on our smartphones, we buy our cinema tickets on our tablets, and in fact it's hard to think of a service which has not been transformed by the internet.

Written by Clara Hosshage on Thursday, 05 March 2015.

That's a first in a world where mass media communication creates a bland and homogeneous culture because of its non-specific nature."

Roman Stanek - The Serial Entrepreneur Taking Ideas to the Clouds

Written by Dan Ginger on Tuesday, 23 December 2014.

Roman Stanek, one of the founding Ariadne Capital investing members, was born during the Communist regime in former Czechslovakia. His entrepreneurial streak started early - shortly after graduating from the Czech Technical University in Prague, he began building businesses. Despite not having access to a computer at school, he distributed U.S. software in Eastern Europe – but with the rise of the internet and the ability to download software online, his business vanished. However the idea that trade links between Eastern Europe and the US were strengthening inspired Roman to pursue this line of business again.
