I was a teenager when Bruce Springsteen scored a big hit with Streets of Philadelphia. 20 years later, walking the streets of Philadelphia for the first time, I found out it was an even bigger hit in Europe than in the USA. I lively remember the impact of Philadelphia – the first mainstream film dealing with HIV/AIDS. In fact, connecting the dots retrospectively, it may have brought me here today.
We all know today’s business reality is fast and furious. It is fast, knowing that, according to recent research from Yale University, the lifespan of a company has decreased by more than 50 years over the last century, averaging a mere 15 years today (which is 3 years less than our very own current age). It is furious, as new technologies will continuously drive massive economic transformations and disruptions in the coming years.
Spring is in the air and next to the first rays of sun, the season also brings… award nominations! We are excited to announce we got no less than 4 nominations!
