Every year the team at Domain.me is gathering international experts, entrepreneurs, investors and c-level executives in the web, mobile & tech-industry in the city of Budva, Montenegro. Their tech conference is called Spark.me and features inspiring speeches, expert panels and a startup competition in teamwork with TechCrunch.
This year I had the honor to talk about the “Digital Future: Trends & Opportunities you need to know about.”
As an introduction I looked back and mentioned key milestones on the history of computing, cellphones and the web. Then I gave an outlook into the future and focused on seven key trends (“7 Digital Trends who need to watch”): Digital Big Bang (new gTLDs), Connected the Unconnected, Human User Interface, Internet of Things, Hardware on Demand (Makermovement) Social Economy (Bitcoin, Social Sharing, Social Reading), Instant Service.
Here you can watch the full keynote.
The conference was inspiring, I met very interesting people and enjoyed the beautiful old town of Budva. For me, it was the first trip to Montenegro and I can really recommend to go there as well. The little country becomes the hotspot on the Adriatic coastline and a magnet for investors and tourists. I was impressed by brand-new superyacht harbor Porto Montenegro, the relaxing Splendid Spa Hotel, the amazing Aman Hotel at Sveti Stefan, the beautiful beaches and the creative entrepreneurial people I met.
Many thanks to the whole team at Domain.me – keep on rockin’!
