After the world went into lockdown, people slowly embraced the technologies that make it easy to collaborate online. Already, private enterprises are capitalizing on this familiarity with collaborative technologies to globalize the education, insurance, research and medical sectors.

As these lessons filter into more sectors, significant changes will surely follow. When combined with advances in wind and solar power, could people’s experiences working from home encourage an exodus away from expensive urban areas? What happens when would-be innovators realize that collaborative technologies could drastically reduce the costs and risks associated with turning million-dollar ideas into a multi-billion-dollar start-ups?

A new age of innovation has dawned. Are you prepared to invest in it?
