#110 - Variety in the global tech industry

16 mins | Dec 7, 2021

Today's episode from 7th December 2021. We're discussing the rise of the local tech startup and the the power of female alliances this morning. First up: America accounts for 71% of the market value of listed firms but now startups are rising up in places where there is no US influence. We take a look at how there is still a place for variety in the global tech industry. Then later, what can we all learn from an author's important realisation about the power she felt when working with other women? We explore the particular power of female alliances. America still rules the tech industry worldwide, but a different pattern has emerged in emerging-market internet firms that focus on providing internet services to consumers. There, the US has much less of an influence. The Economist reveals how three different business categories have formed in this area, making it much more globally dispersed and less American. Author Rebecca Watson had an important realisation during an all-women photo-shoot promoting the theatre adaptation of her book, "Little scratch" there is a particular type of power in female collaborations. Here for the Financial Times, she delves into that thought further. Wake up with Curio is a different kind of morning show that gives you the context behind the news and gets you motivated for the day ahead, every Monday - Friday.
