Exceptional 2011 2020 vision Technology Changing technologies will offer a multitude of opportunities for entrepreneurs, which will shape the way we do business. “There will be signifcant changes in the way information is used in business with further mobilisation --- development of technologies for fast mobile internet and content digitisation." Anatholy Karachinsky, Russia "I fervently hope that the next big economic boom will be around business and technologies that preserve our environment and our way of life, and that entrepreneurship will be the force that saves the planet." Phillip Mills, New Zealand "The 2020 business landscape will be greatly infuenced by techno-preneurs: individuals or nations that are able to transform technological inventions into business." Mr Ciputra, Indonesia "By 2020, life will be even better than today. Fast, intelligent mobile devices ensure being offce-bound is a distant memory and will result in more time with family." Greg Roebuck, Australia "By 2020, economic landscapes will have changed, and brilliant new technologies will have emerged. But the entrepreneur will still be found at the centre of change." Terry Clune, Ireland Innovation Innovation is one of the cornerstones of entrepreneurship. Investment in innovation today will mark out the leaders of tomorrow. "The next generation of entrepreneurship will be led by 'extreme innovation' that conquers new frontiers driven by 'beyonders', who not only push the horizons, but go beyond them!" Mukesh D. Ambani, India "The success of an entrepreneur in 2020 will depend on the innovation of today, because the world will become increasingly more global and competitive. Innovation will be realised in new services or products at lower cost, better quality and performance, and by respecting the environment, the safety and the health of everyone." Zeno Soarve, Italy “I believe that being fexible and rational is the most crucial skill for achieving success in this dynamic process. Companies that are not only institutionalised but also profcient in attaining fexibility and swiftness — and which invest in innovation --- will achieve the greatest success." Orhan Turan, Turkey Globalisation The world will continue to become more globalised, increasing competition but creating benefts of scale and opening up new markets and opportunities. “As the world becomes fatter, more connected and increasingly interdependent, winning entrepreneurs will be multilingual, culturally global and internationally mobile. Relying on only one's native language will mean missing out on opportunities to achieve scale by accessing customers on a worldwide basis." To m Adams, United States "We are headed for a truly globalised market for goods and services. Entrepreneurs will conduct international commerce on a scale never before imagined." Dr Phillip Frost, United States "We live in a world economy and in 10 years it will become even more so. Entrepreneurs will succeed in specialised niches and the world is the market." Bill Gallagher, New Zealand "By 2020, the world will be even more globalised as communications technologies continue to improve and their costs decline. This will mean entrepreneurs can build complex, global businesses more quickly --- albeit not more easily!" Mike Cannon-Brookes and Scott Farquar, Australia "The world will be much more globalised in 2020. Competition will become harder due to the arrival of new global companies coming from emerging countries. Entrepreneurs in 2020 will have access to a new global market larger than the one of today, but much more competitive too. Big challenges are ahead!"
