The Future Now Show explores how we can shape our future now – where near-future impact counts. We showcase strategies and solutions that create futures that work. Every month we roam through current events, discoveries, and challenges – sparking discussion about the connection between today and the futures we’re making – and what we need, from strategy to vision – to make the best ones. This month the central themes are Digital Startups from Asia and innovating in emerging economies.
The Future Now Show is brought to you by the Club of Amsterdam.
The Club of Amsterdam is an independent, international, future-oriented think tank involved in channeling preferred futures. It involves those who dare to think out of the box and those who don’t just talk about the future but actively participate in shaping outcomes.
This show takes a look at the boom in digital start-ups in Asia and how this might evolve. What do newly developed, or still underdeveloped, environments offer as benefits and hindrances for such endeavours and what sort of interaction is there with the older established western economies? With the very different environments of India and Kazakhstan as a backdrop for discussion, this program explores both the potential and the prerequisites for such developments.
