The Digital Economy is transforming the world

The “digital economy […] is the single most important driver of innovation, competitiveness and growth, and it holds huge potential for […] entrepreneurs. ” (EC, 2015)

In 2016, the global Digital Economy was worth $11.5 trillion, 15.5% of the world’s GDP.

It is expected to reach 25% of the world’s GDP in a few years.

The pace of technological change is incredible.

Mobile is a relatively recent technology, and it has progressed from being an expensive cordless landline, to the most affordable source of broadband connectivity, and with 5G it may soon be as fast as Fiber.
