The digital future is here, and the threat of disruption looms large. The COVID-19 crisis has contributed to this disruption and notably accelerated the transition to a digital future. In our current rapidly expanding digital marketplace, what does digital transformation mean for your company and your business model? How can you stay on top, and even ahead, of these rapid changes? What challenges will your company face, and how can you prepare to successfully tackle what’s ahead? Please join MIT ILP alongside MIT faculty [and startups] to discuss and address these key issues in facing our digital future.
