Don Tapscott on the Digital Economy: Making It Happen

The Lisbon Council welcomed Don Tapscott, leading writer and thinker on the digital economy and co-author of Wikinomics: How Mass Collaboration Changes Everything, for a High-Level Working Dinner on Maximising the Potential of the Digital Economy: Driving Growth and Innovation. Mr. Tapscott engaged in a fascinating debate with a group of business leaders, web entrepreneurs and senior experts from the European institutions on the importance and role of the Internet in the economy. The dinner was hosted by the Single Market Entrepreneurs Centre, a joint initiative of the Lisbon Council and Google, which is managed by the Lisbon Council. The SME Centre seeks to shed light on the role SMEs play in the European single market – and the way the single market can help SMEs deliver more growth and jobs to Europe’s economy.
