The rapid growth of the digital economy is the defining narrative of the last fifty years. Spurred by an era of remarkable innovation, digital technology has transformed societies and now contributes an estimated 16 per cent to the global economy annually. However much of the world remains poorly served, with an estimated 3.5 billion people still with no access to the internet.
Most live in low to middle income countries where limited digital capacity in everything from skills and infrastructure, to governance and regulation, hinders economic development. But we know that simply connecting 10 per cent more of a country’s population to the internet leads to an estimated 1.4 per cent growth in GDP, the impact is transformational. Which is why accelerating investment in the digital economy must be a development priority.
Join us for a conversation with leading emerging markets VC investor, Nikunj Jinsi where we will discuss how digital transformation can drive sustainable and inclusive growth. We will also explore the role impact investors can play in accelerating the adoption of digital technology in developing countries.
Nikunj is joined by our Managing Director, Abhinav Sinha who heads up our Technology and Telecoms team, and the discussion is chaired by Colin Buckley.
