The key characteristics of a digital business

  • The ability to connect digital to the P&L statement
  • A greater intimacy with customers and the customer’s customer
  • A focus on continuously evolving and adapting to changing market conditions and disruptions
  • The opportunity to tell a better ESG story, built on data and digital

What it means to build a digital business

Digital business building is a continuous process that can bridge silos across the organization and drive meaningful impact to the P&L. Taking a venture-backed mindset and thinking holistically across the anatomy of the business can accelerate the organic and inorganic growth journeys.

Digital business building is both an art and a science — inventing sticky solutions beyond the first principles is the ‘art’; translating that value into breakthrough P&L impact is the ‘science.’
