PRESS RELEASE - PERSBERICHT

A Public Dialogue about Digital Startups from Asia and about "me and my shadows - innovating in emerging economies"

The Future Now Show is presented by the international think tank Club of Amsterdam.

Every month we roam through current events, discoveries, and challenges - sparking discussion about the connection between today and the futures we're making - and what we need, from strategy to vision - to make the best ones.

about Digital Startups from Asia: AliBaba, Flipkart, InMobi and beyond ...

This show takes a look at the boom in digital start-ups in Asia and how this might evolve. What do newly developed, or still underdeveloped, environments offer as benefits and hindrances for such endeavours and what sort of interaction is there with the older established western economies? With the very different environments of India and Kazakhstan as a backdrop for discussion, this program explores both the potential and the prerequisites for such developments.

about Collaborative Networks and ...

The topic of this show is collaborative networks, which are generally associated with leveraging the internet to work in groups where the members are geographically separated. But the mere existence of social networks like Facebook enables spontaneous collaboration regardless of geographical separation and some activist groups are already using this to great effect. But what are the broader implications of such collaboration? National cultures show strong differences in sentiment, in perception of threats and priorities, and we know that people instinctively behave differently in groups than individually. Will globally connected groups emerge that overshadow national groups or will group sentiments give way to individual sentiments? Will we become more varied or more homogenous, more easily manipulated or more independent in mind and heart, more harmonious or more discordant?

about "me and my shadows - innovating in emerging economies" and ...

In mature western economies the mention of innovation brings to mind corporate R&D labs or spin-outs from academic research environments. In emerging markets the foundations for this kind of innovation are often lacking or incomplete. So to nurture innovation what are the essential foundations you need to build and what might you do differently because you must or because you can? The discussion in this show covers ideas and phenomena from frugal innovation to ‘silicon bridges’. There is no magic formula, for sure, but there is enormous space for new approaches and perspectives, and no lack of inspiration.

The Future Now Show March 2015 features
Madanmohan Rao, Research Advisor, Asian Media Information and Communication Centre, India
