System and Digital Transformations - Innovation for today's industries

Transformation processes can be described as some change in behavior which is intended to alter the desired outcome. Organizations can also go through transformation processes, just like individuals. Usually, organizations will have a change in goal or  organizational mission that will trigger for a transformation process to occur. As a VC, the most prevalent transformative areas we are seeing today relate to how industry is using current technologies to transform themselves to become more efficient, more agile, improve quality and to enable new business models all while reducing costs  and becoming more environmentally friendly. For example, Industry 4.0 technologies such as simulation, AI, additive manufacturing, automation and robotics, IoT and big data/analytics are transforming industries across the globe.
