Digital Transformation and Social Impact

Digital Transformation and Social Impact

The Digital Revolution is accelerating social development across every sector, from health to agriculture, financial services, education etc. These powerful new capabilities, properly harnessed, have the potential to supercharge well-being for many more people. But they bring challenges in innovation and how to effectively scale to improve millions of lives long-term. In many cases, we have the tools and technology to make a difference, but they sit on laboratory shelves. What we need are more technopreneurs focused on building out those ideas to connect with the daily lives of real communities.

Food for thought for the potential technopreneurs,

  • How will tech transform and impact different sectors? (Health, agriculture, finance, education etc)
  • What are some leading digital tools/technologies being used to positively impact communities around the world today? (AI, AR, VR etc)
  • Why is scaling innovations becoming more important today?
  • How can technopreneurs navigate the inherent challenges these tech tools present, while leveraging them to bring about social change?
