“Everything that can be social, will be”. Jeff Dachis, founder of Razorfish and Dachis Group, leads us the way in his book “Social Business by Design”. Social networks have become an integral part of our society. It is hard not to see the changes it has caused: in the way we communicate, share ideas, co-operate and demonstrate our collectiveness.

Most futurologists and economists will state that the growth of our economy depends on innovation, on executing on bright ideas. However, most traditional business leaders will choose to rely on proven technologies and strategies rather than invest in arguable new ones. Creating a chasm, hard to overcome.

At the same time cultural changes will further lead to an implosion of markets. Consumerism will largely be replaced by prosumerism. Ownership replaced by access. Corporate employement replaced by self-employement. Centralized production by decentralized reproduction. Fosil energy by renewable energy. And so on. No wonder that the next 10 years will be very challenging to most existing businesses. Some even predict that 40% of the Fortune 500 companies will no longer exist in 2025.

On the flip side of the coin, the next decade will open up a whole new window of opportunities for newcomers. And it is precisely this time frame, 2015-2025, that my presentation is focussing on: How to survive the chasm and thrive in the next decade.
