Technology Convergence Scenarios – Exploring Untapped Business Models

In an inter-connected world where technology has no boundaries, two or more emerging technologies across industries may converge in various scenarios, leading to unexplored applications or business models. For example, technologies like next-generation stem cells, additive manufacturing and nano-coatings may converge to give rise to "personalized cosmeceuticals," which are cosmetics customized based on phenotype and genotype of the user. Unexplored business models like these may become the next disruptive billion-dollar idea for investors, corporate executives and R&D professionals. The webinar will discuss key trends that drive these convergence scenarios and potential market challenges that should be noted while considering these opportunities.
