It used to be the case that if you wanted to play on a global scale, you had to be a big and powerful company. But not anymore. Thanks to connectivity and technology, almost any business can find a market beyond its borders. All it takes these days is a high-speed internet connection and you can get started plying your trade worldwide. Netflix and Uber are common examples of this force at work. You can also pay cheaply for great services, such as Slack, and so drastically lower expenses for businesses and communities.
