Technology has transformed the way we live; it has made the world a smaller, more open place.
Communication and collaboration have been revolutionized by the advent of cloud computing and social networking to a degree unseen since the dawn of the industrial revolution.
Naturally, the question that comes to mind: how can an investor gain exposure to, and profit from, this “open world” revolution?
Recently, many investors attempted to capitalize on these changes by taking part in the initial public offerings of companies such as Facebook (FB),Groupon (GRPN) and Yelp (YELP). Thus far, returns have not been awe inspiring, with these companies stocks down 16%, 36% and 23%, respectively.
