Tech Takes Over
Scientists, engineers and futurists spend the bulk of their time trying to predict and actualize their dreams of what the future is supposed to look like. And when you throw their ideas and innovations together into the stew, sometimes dreams do come true.
Let’s take a quick trip back to the past…
Back in the late ’80s, I remember watching the Batmobile on the big screen. It was sleek, sexy and speedy. The formula for the perfect vehicle.
Then it got better.
Batman controlled the car… with simple voice commands.
Thirty years ago, that may have seemed preposterous, even wilder than an eccentric billionaire dressed as a bat fighting crime.
Today it’s reality. (The voice commands, not Bruce Wayne’s alter ego.)
But smart cabins in our vehicles are just one of millions of examples of how the world is changing around us thanks to technology.
The “Future” Is Closer Than You Think
The signs of a transformative technology and the new economy it creates are everywhere we look. There’s a daily deluge of technology news ranging from the latest bells and whistles on our devices to the newest lifestyle convenience made possible by the internet of things.
Look deeper and so-called disruptions are suddenly becoming mainstream. Entire industries — think Uber upending transportation or Airbnb hijacking hospitality — have been redefined by new thinking and new ideas.
The trend has spawned an ideas economy and flipped the connotation of the word “disruptive” from negative to positive.
It’s a Great Time to Be Tech Investor
This economic metamorphosis has created a sense of urgency. For creatives and entrepreneurs, it means a need for frequent reinvention. More than ever, a business idea that is dated by several years will be seen as baggage. Instead, business models must be regularly reimagined.
Still, the interconnectedness of this ideas economy brings unprecedented opportunity to market. Social media platforms and innovative apps provide forums to simultaneously present new ideas and prospects for investors.
And never before have we as retail investors had such access to these opportunities. Technology has leveled the playing fields and allowed the little guy to get his stake in the next big idea too.
That’s why there’s never been a better time than now to be a tech investor.
