We live in an era where social, mobile, and local seem to be the gateways through which all relevant innovations must pass and the lenses through which we must peek to understand ongoing and future transformations across many industries. Localisation, peer reviewing, and real time scheduling are rewriting the rules of commerce and traditional client vendor relationships. Banks and credit companies risk loosing control of their future as our mobile devices become credit cards. Enterprise social networking is connecting the ever elusive dots between product development, marketing, sales, and operations teams and their clients, suppliers and end customers, ubiquitously and dynamically, driving radical efficiencies and speeding business.

Cloud computing is shrinking the hardware space and expanding that of security. Data overflow is pushing the limits of intelligent analytics. No doubt that the role of information and communication technologies as enablers of many aspects of our personal and professional daily lives will gain momentum in the years and decades ahead, INNOVENTURE EUROPE’s selected Best of Breed enterprises will exemplify the diversity of the disruptive trends at work.
