COVID-19 WILL FUEL THE NEXT WAVE OF INNOVATION (1)


Adapting ourselves to the new life post-Covid-19, both psychologically and economically, necessitate a non-trivial amount of innovation and changes. Studying over 50 startups that gained scaled around the times of global crises via the lens of this framework clears the mist.


To start off, a recession usually brings about an acceleration in business model change, driving down costs to serve and prices. On the other hand, pandemics tend to enable entirely new categories of businesses. It also becomes quite clear that both pandemics and recessions are accelerants to innovation versus being direct causes of it; i.e. these startups and business ideas were around but gained popularity at a faster rate thanks to a certain black swan event. With these learnings and frameworks in mind, below are three macro innovations we can expect to stick around post-Covid-19.

COVID-19 WILL FUEL THE NEXT WAVE OF INNOVATION (2)


Supply chains will merge into resilient ecosystems


Global supply chains have long been geared towards keeping quality relatively constant while competition keeps costs driving lower at every step. This has resulted in significant concentration risk in terms of geographies and vendors for most companies.


For example, China scaling down due to Covid-19 and creating a knock-on supply impacts what we are seeing today and has exposed the lack of resilience in this approach. There is a sharp need for a more distributed, coordinated and trackable supply of components across multiple geographies and vendors while maintaining economies of scale. This would require global platforms to be erected that use sophisticated technologies such as 5G, robotics, IoT and blockchain to help link multiple buyers with multiple vendors reliably across a ‘mesh’ of supply chains.


This will also have a knock-on impact on the adoption of self-driving cars and delivery drones as the demand for e-commerce logistics will far outstrip the number of drivers needed to fulfill them. The usual B2B platform suspects such as Amazon and Ali Baba are likely to step up and compete for the ownership of this more sophisticated supply chain ecosystem in the next decade.

COVID-19 WILL FUEL THE NEXT WAVE OF INNOVATION (3)


Digital bureaucracies will become mainstream


The Covid-19 breakout has caused government bureaucracies to spin into action quicker than ever before. China broke records by constructing a 645,000 sq. ft hospital in just 10 days in Wuhan. South Korea drove rapid testing of over 200,000 of its citizens and used smartphones to tag the movement of the infected — alerting the non-infected of those movements via real-time updates. All of these efforts, as well as transparency of biological impact, could have been improved if there were more smart cities in the world.


According to the latest study by the University of Glasgow, only 27 out of 5,500 large-sized cities are considered leading in this area. As governments learn from the Covid-19 experience, it will shift investment in favor of smart cities as it would be critical to have them in order better manage the next black swan event. Key players benefiting from this shift in gears would be smart governments, focused companies such as Cisco, Microsoft, and Siemens as well as digital city startups across Europe and the US.

COVID-19 WILL FUEL THE NEXT WAVE OF INNOVATION (4)


Mental health support will be provided at scale, digitally


It is straight forward to predict that the Covid-19 is going to be an accelerant for remote working as well as online education. What is harder to figure out is what will happen once the majority of the key workforce needs to work together remotely, indefinitely. It is likely that this shift will impact morale, productivity and mental health of workers throughout the globe and businesses need to prepare for it. For companies looking to add the human touch digitally to their workplace, the choices are limited today — with Humu, a startup by ex-google HR chief Laszlo Bock, being in pole position to capitalize on this.


A handful of other tech companies, such as Github and Automattic, which run predominately on a remote collaboration model can also choose to productize their insights and capabilities in order to help other companies cope. For individuals working remotely, things are looking much better. Several mental health startups such as Braive and Moment Pebble can double down on solving the problem of isolation while business networking apps such as Ripple can help solve the mentoring and development challenges that come with being a remote worker.

COVID-19 WILL FUEL THE NEXT WAVE OF INNOVATION (5)


A post-coronavirus world


Covid-19 is a terrible shock to the global economy as well as the thousands of individuals and families it has affected. Companies in the immediate term need to ensure that the health and safety of its workers, partners and suppliers come first. Over the long term, Covid-19 has irrevocably changed the way businesses will compete over the next decade. Firms that choose to capitalize on these underlying changes will succeed and the ones that don’t will get disrupted.

CHOOSING AN IB/ IB GROUP


The two most important criteria in selecting an IB are experience and honesty. There is no substitute for these two qualities. Experienced IBs are familiar with all types of orders, strategies, and nuances of the market. Qualified brokers have dealt with the full spectrum of economic environments and a wide variety of market factors and are more likely to direct clients to the right action under most circumstances. Honesty – it goes without saying that clients must trust their IBs. Customer wants an IB who cares about them, their account, and their orders.


According to Ritva's experts, a good IB/IB groups must:


- Are knowledgeable about the markets.
- Keep their clients informed about the market and the conditions of their accounts.
- Have good personal contacts in the marketplace that often can provide background information on market news that is not otherwise readily available.
- Do not pressure clients to trade.

Estonia -  One Of The Most Tech-Savvy Societies In The World


Estonia is a tiny country in Northern Europe. Due to its quiet and pacific nature, the Baltic region doesn't often get too much attention. However, Estonia is by far the most advanced digital society on the planet. The numbers speak for themselves: Taxes are completed online in under 5 minutes, 99 percent of Estonia’s public services are available online 24 hours a day and nearly one-third of citizens vote via the internet.


“We have a generation who has grown up knowing that you communicate digitally with your school because we have an e-school system, with your doctor because of e-health,” Estonia’s president Kersti Kaljulaid told CNBC in an interview in Tallinn in August, 2019. “You could say the Estonian government offers what normally only the private sector can offer to people.”

E-Residency Of Estonia


Estonia's E-Residency can be deemed as the main key to Estonia’s digital society. This first-of-its-kind initiative allows individuals to start businesses in Estonia regardless of where they physically are. Beyond Estonia, this very initiative serves as a launching pad for companies looking to step into the European Union (EU) market.


This undoubtedly grants an unmatched advantage for "the outsiders". Estonia E-Residency has received significant interest worldwide, with more than 50,000 applications have been filed and approved since its launch in 2014. Taavi Kotka, Estonia’s first-ever chief information officer summed it up nicely, “People who have global businesses, have a global lifestyle, they want to be served, and we want to be the best ones in that area”.

Estonia's Digital Nomad Visa - The First Of Its Kind


Estonia is now building on its success with e-Residency to launch a visa for digital nomads; employees who work remotely around the world. The visa is an example of a public-private partnership at work between the Estonian government and Jobbatical, a cross-border hiring firm.


“What we are doing with the digital nomad visa, it really reflects what our whole immigration policy is about,” said Killu Vantsi, a legal migration adviser at the Estonian Ministry of the internal affairs. “We want to attract the talented people, entrepreneurs that are beneficial to our society to our economy.”


Karoli Hindriks, CEO of Jobbatical, said other countries should follow Estonia’s lead as they face aging populations and a lack of skilled workers. “The countries that are closing down and not thinking about it, I’m very curious to see where they will be in 10, 15 years,” she said.

Estonia - The Unicorn King


Efforts like e-Residency and the digital nomad visa, along with business-friendly tax rates, have helped encourage a start-up culture in the tiny Baltic nation. Skype, the video chatting service that was bought by Microsoft, was launched in Estonia in 2003.


Today, the government boasts it is home to more tech unicorns, private companies valued at more than $1 billion, per capita than any other small country in the world. Its recent unicorns include payments firm TransferWise and Uber competitor Taxify.


Other companies focusing on everything from blockchain to organic food are now vying to be the next Estonian success.


“The environment they set up right now is really friendly,” said Gregory Lu, co-founder of Natufia Labs, a start-up that created a machine to grow organic produce indoors. “I hope they keep it this way.”

Gradually Reopening The EU Region


In an attempt to control the impact of the Covid 19 pandemic, many European countries have been lockdown totally — meaning that citizens are only allowed outside their house for buying groceries and medicines. However, some countries are deliberately relaxing restrictions.


Reopening EU regions means there is a light at the end of the tunnel, that after weeks of home-restriction, the world will eventually return to normal - even if “normal” looks a little bit different than it used to. The situation would definitely benefit the EU’s economy. “A bit of "cautious optimism" could help consumer confidence. People may make or begin planning purchases they wouldn't make otherwise.” said Stephen Wu, a professor of economics at Hamilton College.


As a matter of fact, Ritva is located in Estonia, EU and surely can not avoid the effect of a lockdown; however, just a little bit. Indeed, Ritva's team consistently commits and completes their tasks in an excellent way despite working remotely as a result of their familiarity with technology since their childhood. Even though home-restriction has no effect on the process of Ritva’s earning profit, reopening the continent will offer us a clear and huge opportunity in search of potential start-ups. And honestly, who doesn't love freedom, right?

THE EU SUPPORTS START-UPS (1)

Startups across EU have been hit severely by the coronavirus pandemic. Until the crisis is over, survival has to be the imperative focus for startups. Fortunately, on April 15th, United Tech of Europe, which is basically a coalition of national, EU-based startup lobbying organisations, including those of France and Germany, launched a handy policy map that shows which governments have taken which action to support startups and scale-ups in the middle of the global COVID-19 pandemic crisis.

The organisation insists that support for startup is crucial. “Start-ups and growth stage companies are especially vulnerable to the knock-on effects of the coronavirus crisis,” it points out. “Many start-ups are not yet generating revenue and therefore do not profit from fiscal support measures, leaving them dependent on upcoming funding rounds which are likely to be postponed. To help them stay afloat in this period of pressing uncertainty, states and regulators are being made accountable for putting the necessary measures in place. Such measures include facilitating short-term refinancing, the early return of some tax credits, certain guarantees for lost cash flow or short-term employment schemes”.

THE EU SUPPORTS START-UPS (2)


With the help from the organisation, the financial burden is partly reduced. However, for further development, seeking fund is unavoidable. Understanding the circumstance, even under the pressure of home-restriction, Ritva’s venture capitalists have their own way to observing the struggling of startups as well as their solutions in an attempt to cope with the situation. From their reactions, Ritva’s experts will easily evaluate the success rate of potential startups and then make a profit decision.

ROADBLOCKS - FEATURE OF ESTONIA'S DIGITAL SOCIETY


The journey to become a digital society in Estonia hasn’t been without roadblocks. In 2007, the country suffered a massive cyber attack that brought down most of its digital infrastructure.


In the wake of the attack, Estonia became home to the NATO Cyber Defense Centre of Excellence, which conducts large-scale cyber defense drills. The government also created a data embassy in Luxembourg where it stores copies of all of its data.


Still, officials were forced to respond to more than 10,000 cyber incidents in Estonia in 2017. The country’s top banking regulator recently warned online databases and programs like e-Residency have made Estonia vulnerable to dirty money and sanctions breaches.


Government officials admit that being a digital society means being prepared for cyber threats. Kaljulaid said “cyber hygiene” is essential for every citizen.


“You will always be teaching and educating people,” she said. “It’s like teaching hygiene. You wash your hands because germs spread.”
