Rising together

  • Need a headstart to navigate the next decade of global technology innovation?
  • For over a decade, 500 Global has not only invested in 2,800+ companies across 80 countries, we’ve exchanged research, insights and perspectives with changemakers — including entrepreneurs, investors, operators, academics and policymakers — to continue to hone our investment insights, as well as to further the conversation around uplifting people and economies around the world through entrepreneurship. 
  • We’re sharing it with you in the 500 Global Rise Report: a collection of data, insights and perspectives to invite more stakeholders into the conversation.
  • “We hope the insights and perspectives from this research will spur important discussions among stakeholders — governments, asset allocators, investors, and innovators — to mobilize a broader innovation and development story, and an inclusive one. We want the Rise Report to help more people to win across global economies, and to create lasting change for a better world.” – Khailee Ng, Managing Partner, 500 Global
  • The report covers four narratives on the next decade of global technology – Rise of the Next Internet Users; Rise of the Next Global Companies; Rise of the Next Economies; Rise of the Next Sectors – and addresses some of these questions:
    • How has the global internet user base grown over the last decades?
    • How is this expected to evolve over the next decades?
    • How does growth in internet users drive value creation?
    • Where and how do we think this value will accrue?
    • Is it important for a tech company to operate with a global lens?
    • How does this apply to companies at different stages of growth?
    • Are there insights we can gain from studying the tech giants?
    • Which specific economies should we pay attention to in the next decade?
    • Are there economies outside of economic giants, the US and China, that are positioned for outsized growth?
    • Our analysis surfaced 30 economies that we believe are large, fast-growing and full of potential; we present the Rise 30 Economies.
    • What +$1B sectors rise in each of the Rise 30? And in what sequence do these +$1B sectors emerge?
    • Are there patterns that can be observed across the Rise 30 that can inform the identification of opportunities in other economies?
