The Two Faces of Innovation

The Covid-19 Crisis is an unprecedented catalyst for change. This shock will rewrite the rules of the game and accelerate, amongst others, socio-economic and technological trends that were already happening. The only way forward is to change and adapt to the new reality. Quickly. We believe the fastest economic rebound will most probably take place in Asia, and in China in particular. The continent has learned from previous crises and was better prepared. But it’s the dynamism, agility, and the speed of change of Asian companies that now sets them apart. They’re known for their resilience and they learned to operate in highly dynamic, fast-growing markets, against the same backdrop of digital disruption and rapidly evolving consumer demands. China’s innovative mindset will propel Asian companies and economies at large to become global frontrunners, set the pace and lead the way out of the crisis. Silicon Valley and China’s tech ecosystem cities (such as Beijing, Shanghai, Hangzhou and Shanghai) are the fastest evolving innovation hubs in the world. But inspiration from pioneering startups, corporates and academics from these distant corners of the globe should not be an ‘either, or’ story. Each has its very own background, innovation DNA, culture, methods and strategies. Each has the potential to trigger you in ways you’d never thought possible.
