The top 12 tech trends of the next five years

The top 12 tech trends of the next five years | Small Business Mentoring | Scoop.it

This piece was written by Patrick Stafford for Smartcompany. I selected it because it has great news for entrepreneurs, who will be further enabled by upcoming technological advances which free them from many of their current time constraints.

 

Intro:

 

"Technology has completely changed the way entrepreneurs live and work over the course of SmartCompany’s five years – and the revolution won’t stop soon.

 

**So where is technology going next? SmartCompany has assembled a team of experts to gaze into the crystal ball and find out what technology will look like in 2017.

 

****Happily, according to Google Australia engineering director Alan Noble, the technology future is a bright one for entrepreneurs".

 

This is what caught my attention:

 

****“There has never been a better time to start a company because you can outsource everything that’s non-core: your ad marketing, your design, your eCommerce,” Noble says.

 

**What you’re left to do is focus on that core value proposition.

 

Curated by Jan Gordon covering "Change Through Ongoing Discussions"
