Guessing right 9/10 predictions last year (damn you, crypto) gave me the confidence to do this again. Here’s what I expect to happen in tech in 2019:


High confidence:

🛴 Uber enters the scooter game by acquiring one of the major players, alongside a (initially) successful IPO.

🎙Podcasts will attract large investments and at least 1 podcast-related company will reach >$100M valuation.

🍎 Apple will lose mobile market dominance due to the lack of innovation. Android wins considerable market share.

Likely to happen:

🤷🏻‍♂️ Elon Musk faces unprecedented backlash because of his decisions / tweets.

🆕 New paid advertising channels will open up.

📊 Fairly stable public markets, despite recession concerns.

⏰ Major layoffs at Facebook – most notably, Sheryl Sandberg.

Wouldn’t bet my money on:

🇨🇳 At least 1 Chinese tech company gains huge popularity worldwide.

💸 Amazon will spin off AWS into a separate company, valued at >$100B

🍏 Apple makes a multi $B acquisition in an attempt to enter new markets.
