"Reboot 2020: Tech Innovations for Sustainable Growth" is a series by Padang & Co to detect signals and discuss emerging trends arising from the COVID-19 crisis. We will consider how these technology innovations could get us back on track for sustainable growth. 

At the same time, we are aware technology itself is not enough. It will also take the ingenuity of innovators — both entrepreneurs and intrapreneurs — to solve problems, many made worse by the unfolding crisis. We believe there are many opportunities for these innovators to help the world meet the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by 2030. 


This series will focus on areas we at Padang & Co are most concerned about — Food & Agriculture, Smarter Cities, and Health; with two themes, Sustainability and Data & AI, cutting across them.


Predicting the future is tricky at the best of times. We welcome your inputs in making sense of the world today and tomorrow.
