Det blir inte bättre för att du frågar kunderna

Ska man ge sig hän åt kunddriven design gäller det att vara nyfiken på vad kunderna behöver, och då behöver man ha lite koll på vad man ska fråga efter. Och när. Sök efter kontext och helhet.

Top 8 UK FinTech’s to follow and why

Posted by Henrik P Löfgren on 2019-apr-02 10:22:25

Despite current political circumstances, The London FinTech scene is booming. The city, by many seen as the financial capital of the world, attracts tech-savvys, entrepreneurs and investors, and every day you hear about new ventures, that are disrupting the industry or at least attempting to. Navigating in this landscape can be challenging even though hubs such as Rise and Level 39 exist, which attract many new innovators.

But the few who actually are successful make a large impact on the industry, and drive it forward by enabling new, smart and value-adding solutions.

Unprecedented Blockchain Investment Fuels Business Model Innovation

Posted by Alexander Danson on 2018-aug-22 10:20:00

Blockchain changes the digital playing field when it comes to business models. Companies are building applications which can be governed in a decentralised way beyond the control of a single person, company or country.

Furthermore, there are companies who can raise $4 billion in a matter of months, in ways we never knew existed just a few years ago. This is just the beginning.
