Brexit and the Future of the UK Digital Economy

Brexit and the Future of the UK Digital EconomyDepressing? I do not think so, and here is why.

When it comes to finding talents in the laptop-lifestyle-era, we have an open market. Companies for years have relied on virtual management and outsourcing to save costs and hire qualified, skilled employees without much hassle of administrative, HR and immigration regulations.

The digital business sector is well-known to be without boundaries and effectively interconnected, not only B2B but also B2U (Business-to-University). Universities such as Cambridge, Glasgow, Durham and Edinburgh have highest graduates prospects and research quality; both have a direct impact on the talent pool available locally.

The technology trade markets are also without boundaries, with efforts in localization – both language-wise and regulation-wise, applications developed in a country are easily sold in another country given that the app solves a problem or makes people’s lives easier.

As a business strategist, I know that history repeats itself. We might feel that the world is changing now, but the fact is that the world is always changing. The strongest economies are built on the spirit of entrepreneurship and the vital role of governments in encouraging collective innovation and strategic renewal movements.

As we know, every heavy cloud has a silver lining, and the silver lining here is that many entrepreneurs will recognize the opportunities to fill any void that will result in the gloomy political situation. They will keep discovering problems to solve, and they will keep creating solutions.
