Afrique Avenir, une autre vision de l'Afrique Why 'disruptive finance' has found its home in London | VentureBeat | Business | by William Bancroft This is a guest post by The Real Asset Company‘s William Bancroft We’ve all heard about the contrasts between the venture and entrepreneurial scenes in the USA and Europe. The prevailing view is that the US, especially Silicon Valley, is a more vibrant hotbed of disruption than the UK and Europe. Pools of venture money are funding U.S. start-ups, fueling a more compelling roster of Google-like successes. A sector growing outside of the USA But a certain niche has grown more mature and attractive outside of the US, and is largely focused around London. Disruptive financial services businesses seeking to revolutionize the way we move money, save and invest, trade and speculate, and generally consume financial services are finding London a more fertile environment to launch and grow. Apart from crowd-funding and P2P lending, which are established in the U.S., a number of start-ups and established businesses in London have found doing business in America to be difficult.

Infoguerre Observatoire des Tendances What is disruptive technology A disruptive technology is one that displaces an established technology and shakes up the industry or a ground-breaking product that creates a completely new industry. Harvard Business School professor Clayton M. Christensen coined the term disruptive technology. In his 1997 best-selling book, "The Innovator's Dilemma," Christensen separates new technology into two categories: sustaining and disruptive. Sustaining technology relies on incremental improvements to an already established technology. Disruptive technology lacks refinement, often has performance problems because it is new, appeals to a limited audience and may not yet have a proven practical application. Here are a few examples of disruptive technologies: The personal computer (PC) displaced the typewriter and forever changed the way we work and communicate. In his book, Christensen points out that large corporations are designed to work with sustaining technologies.

Territorios del Conocimiento Por: Francisco Javier Roldán Velásquez Es importante hacer la diferencia entre lo que es un Territorio Digital (Infraestructura + Alfabetización Digital + Apropiación básica de las TIC en algunos ámbitos de aplicación), un Territorio Inteligente (Smart City) y/o Ubicuo (uso de las TIC de manera más inteligente, intuitiva y ubicua en todos los ámbitos de aplicación posibles) y 'Territorios del Conocimiento' que es la apropiación de la Ciencia, Tecnología e Innovación Abierta y Colaborativa, haciendo un uso intensivo, productivo y eficiente de las TIC como medio, donde el ciudadano participa de manera más directa en el desarrollo de los productos y servicios, en toda su cadena de valor, hasta su uso o consumo, potenciando la creatividad y el talento de la población de dicho territorio, para darle sostenibilidad al conocimiento Tácito o implícito y explícito o crear conocimiento a partir de la Investigación, Desarrollo e Innovación (I+D+i). Considera a sus habitantes como Creadores.
