New year,
new trends,
new report.

And that deserves a celebration. Our first Shift Afterwork of 2023 will be an evening to listen & debate on the topics we believe will be decisive in the years to come. The event is invite-only, but you can always convince us why you deserve a seat as well.

Shift Afterwork:  January 26, 2023

Created with Midjourney

Celebrate the new year with new insights.

The start of 2023 comes bearing gifts. A new year, new emerging trends and a brand new Shift Report. Three splendid reasons to host our first
Shift Afterwork of the year.

Seats are limited, but you can try to claim your very own spot. Send us your best reason why you want to attend, and maybe we'll see you on  January 26.

Why going hybrid
is a no-brainer.
Going hybrid is one of the most important choices you have to think of today, and it’s something that you have to do thoroughly. It’s not a technical choice but a strategic one. Delaying a decision is actually making one without thinking about the consequence.

Super apps: a story of bundling vs. unbundling
Ever since mobile apps exist, there has been one constant movement like the ebb and flow of the waves: bundling and unbundling. And from time to time, a big wave of ‘super apps’ pops up. Making the daredevils among us dream about riding it. But should you stick your feet in these murky waters?
