Emerging technologies and innovative new business models are transforming life, business and the global economy at a speed never seen before.
As technologies including 3D Printing, Advanced Robotics, Blockchain, Internet of Things, Artificial Intelligence, Autonomous Vehicles and Virtual Reality dramatically reshape the modern world, businesses set up in less fluid times are having to make increasingly complex and critical decisions against the ticking clock of change.
But looking beyond the alarmist headlines and the proliferation of buzzwords surrounding technological disruption, many business leaders still lack a source of expert opinion and analysis of this ongoing digital transformation. That’s where D/SRUPTION steps in.
D/SRUPTION is a magazine and website offering essential information and insights for business leaders. We’ve created a unique ecosystem, bringing together business leaders across enterprise, start-up, consultancy, and investments firms to address the key questions around disruption, innovation and digital transformation.
Having supported investment promotion agencies, governments and businesses in their strategy and communication-related efforts in the CEE region, we noticed a lack of a platform designed to really discuss business opportunities in the region.
Born out of a passion for the region and a will to contribute to its development, Emerging Europe was created in 2013 as a stand-alone online publication.
For us, emerging Europe consists of 23 countries, which are at various stages of development, but share the same post-communist experience. They were a hidden part of Europe for a long time. Now we want them to ‘emerge’.
In line with its mission, Emerging Europe contributes to capacity building efforts in the region by donating part of its revenues.
Emerging Europe’s development was halted by decades of communism. Yet, enormous progress has been achieved in the last 25 years. Our team believes in the outstanding potential of the region and we are convinced that the future of Europe lies in CEE. Our mission is to contribute to the region’s further economic and social development.
