Implications of digital acceleration and why we think it presents compelling small- and mid-cap opportunities beyond the tech sector
Digital transformation, in its simplest terms, is the process of taking activities that are offline to online. This evolution has been in motion for decades, but COVID-19 appears to have quickened the pace of change. Consequently, we think the game has changed for smaller companies across industries and worldwide. Here’s why:
- Internet ubiquity has changed the dynamic between consumers and companies
- Digital democracy provides smaller companies more access to digital infrastructure and a clearer blueprint to success
- Customer connections and feedback loops help create robust business models
