Globalization and the internet have shrunk our world. Individuals and companies are now connected in real time with others all over the globe … the World is truly FLAT! Leveraging this inter-connectivity is the opportunity for cross border partnership models to be an innovative paradigm to overcome the economic turbulence that we have all faced and are still facing. By blurring boundaries literally and figuratively, we can now identify and access new markets, novel skills, technologies, and products to help defray fixed costs and resources. This talk will outline the Emerging Market landscape, analyze the opportunities and challenges to be successful in this environment and provide some insights to the future.
