In this issue, we focus on how globalization has accelerated innovation, and–in turn–enabled more cultural cohesion through shared experiences. In our cover story, we explore the idea of borderless commerce through our interview with Airwallex Co-founder Lucy Liu. The Australia-founded fintech startup is laying the foundation for new financial infrastructures that make it possible for businesses of all sizes to expand globally. We also look ahead to examine defining technologies of the next decade, how to succeed as a consumer brand in the 2020s, and what we can expect as the ‘Streaming War’ heats up. As always, we speak with thought leaders and analyze topics that are sure to spark your interest, such as crypto theft and the relationship between tech and warfare. To our readers: thank you for your ongoing support and encouragement. We always welcome your feedback and look forward to hearing from you. Wishing everyone a great start to the new year–from all of us at Jumpstart.
