COVID-19 has reshaped how many Australians use digital technology. Will these changes last? And what will it mean for how we live and work long term? How can we use COVID to generate jobs of the future for the next generation?
This week on The Long View, Clare chats with two legends of the Australian startup community: Paul Bassat, co-founder and partner at Square Peg Capital, and Didier Elzinga, CEO and founder of Culture Amp. The tech sector is used to disruption and adapting to change, but the COVID-19 crisis has redefined those concepts, so what will be the long term impacts for the digital economy in Australia?
There are a lot of big questions being asked across the public and private sectors about what Australia’s economy should look like after the coronavirus crisis is over. Will we successfully reboot old industries that have naturally declined in Australia, such as manufacturing? What about the new industries and our digital economy?
Innovation and technology have always been crucial in considering how we create a brighter future for Australia, but with COVID-19 resulting in a whole heap of wicked problems to solve, the startup ecosystem might be where we will find some of our solutions.
