Many of the world’s fastest growing online markets are in Latin America and Asia where younger generations are driving digital adoption. A look at which global markets are driven by young Internet populations showed Venezuela having the highest percentage of its total online population age 15 to 24 at close to half (44.5%).
Indonesia followed with 15-24 year olds accounting for 41.8% of its online population, followed closely by Vietnam (40.7%) and Colombia (40.2%). In comparison, the markets with the highest proportion of visitors age 55 and older were largely found in Western Europe, where markets often have an ageing overall population and more mature digital environments. Sweden topped the list with 26.1% of its online population in this segment, while one in four online users in Germany, Denmark and the Netherlands resided in the 55+ cohort. Tour du monde : les 10 autres Silicon Valley - dossier.
Is it the rise of the 'Global Valley'? Gonzalo Martin-Villa (@linmvp) is Global CEO of Telefonica Digital’s dynamic tech startups accelerator Wayra. This article was also featured by the Huffington Post UK Silicon Valley is synonymous with information technology, from the founding fathers of the modern computer industry (Apple, HP and Intel) through to the giants of modern business software (Oracle and Adobe) to the internet generation (led by Google, Yahoo) via companies like Cisco that connect the world. But new research out there – the Startup Ecosystem Report 2012 - supports my view that we need to think not only about “the Valley” in one corner of California, but many locations all over the world, streaming across Sao Paolo, Bangalore and Melbourne to name a few.
The report’s Top 20 cities rankings reflect the move to a ‘global valley’ (see below) The digital world is at its heart disruptive It is far more liable to change than the great waves of opportunity of the past. From Silicon Valley to a Global Valley. Digital innovation: why Silicon Valley will be replaced by a. Silicon Valley is still synonymous with digital innovation and information technology. But for me, the new research in the Startup Ecosystem Report 2012 by Telefonica Digital (@tefdigital) and the Startup Genome supports my view that we are seeing a shift to a global valley.
You can see the evidence in entrepreneurial stories from all over the world, Europe included: consider SoundCloud (Germany), MindCandy (UK), Spotify (Sweden), Mail.ru and Yandex (Russia) and Rovio (Finland). Some of the global hubs will have local specialities, of course. London and Berlin are magnets for companies that work on the crossroads of advertising, marketing, digital arts and website creation. Bangalore is a hotspot for IT outsourcing. Israel has deep domain knowledge in computer security, as well as providing core R&D that companies like Intel rely on.
It’s also clear from the report that global hubs will have to offer a few essentials to capitalise on the digital opportunities. It’s so accessible too.

The Middle East travel market is growing rapidly with increasing numbers of people from the region booking holidays to Europe.
Travellers from the Middle East, especially those from the more affluent GCC region, have a tendency to stay longer at destinations and spend more freely when travelling abroad. They are also more likely to use a mobile device to make key travel decisions. The region’s positive and enthusiastic attitude towards emerging mobile trends means that now is an ideal opportunity for European tourism boards to tap into these trends and create tailored marketing campaigns that leverage the unique features of the Middle Eastern mobile consumer base. Throughout the Middle East, demographics skew towards the young. 60% of the region is youthful, especially in the GCC, where over half the population is under 25. As expected, most of these young people are super-connected and thoroughly fluent natives of the digital world.

A quick note on what is meant by “digital natives.” The study defines a digital native as “a youth, aged 15-24 inclusive, with 5 years or more experience using the internet.” While the study did look at the percentage of youth who are digital natives by country (some results are contained in the chart above), one of the study’s co-authors believes that the most relevant figure is the one comparing the number of digital natives to a country’s total population.
“That’s because a country’s future will be defined by today’s young people and by technology,” according to GA Tech Associate Professor Michael Best, a co-leader of the study who developed the model calculating the figures. Onto the results. The researchers find that the country with the highest proportion of digital natives in its population is Iceland, at 13.9%. Not surprisingly, the countries in the top 10 tend to be high- or upper-middle-income countries with widespread internet penetration and/or large swathes of youth.
