The next billion dollar companies will be those who solve the environmental, clean energy, social & political issues of our times.
Because that’s what the consumer WANTS.
Trends of 2018:

- Yes bitcoin is tanking right now, but technologists love it because the blockchain provides so many opportunities for redistribution of wealth and restructuring of government.
- More people going Vegetarian than ever- Silicon Valley is providing solutions with meat alternatives.
- Formula 1 announces it’s no longer using grid girls – slightly off topic but connected to the ‘Clean Living’ society we are slowly moving to.

  1. Yes, bitcoin is not the point, but the technological opportunities it inspires with pivotal changes to old processes that either need to be updated or entirely replaced with better solutions.

  2. Did you know that 4.6 billion people around the world are currently parked from the information superhighway? What if there was a solution to deliver them commercialized Wi-Fi services utilizing only solar and winder power?

  6. In your predictions does this year include getting rid of Trump? Just asking in case the world goes back to its ‘normal’ state…

  7. I agree the successful companies deliver what the consumer wants.

    I disagree that your list is what the consumer wants. …

    1. No, it isn’t off topic. I follow Formula 1 so I meant it in general on how to react to their decision to not have grid girls.

  8. Fully agree H. The next billion dollar companies need to fix real world problems. Social media is slowly becoming old school and passe. Ergo the drop in FB/Twitter numbers. Social media will be like email. It will exist but used sparringly.

    The old expression is ‘where there is muck there is brass’ – i.e where there is a problem there is money.
