Qmarkets

Reducing the friction around innovation

Paul Hobcraft

The backdrop of digital transformation and its consequences

Paul Hobcraft

Digital transformation is doubly difficult, it forces us to work with mostly emerging, constantly evolving technologies, and then apply these in an integrated way into an existing business.

Thus it is hard to convince those undecided to support this, whether they are just skeptical or lacking technology adroitness.

Timing of Innovation – Getting the Odds On Your Side

Idea to Value

The problem with timing is that every innovation only has a relatively small window of opportunity that happens when the technology and customers are ready, but there isn’t much entrenched competition. But, there’s more to being too early than just technology.

Established companies must be startups, and vice versa.

Mike Shipulski

To create new markets and new customers, established companies must be a little bit startup, and to scale, startups must ultimately be a little bit established. Trouble is, all companies need both – established companies need new markets and startups need to scale. The competition is ever-improving, the economy is ever-changing and the planet is ever-warming. New technologies come on-line, and new business models test the waters.
