Potential Trends Brought by COVID-19

We write this article at a point where it is close to impossible to make any predictions about the real extent of the COVID-19 crisis and its actual impacts on the global economy. A few questions start to consistently pop up in the webinars, live events, and crisis committees’ discussion forums that became part of our daily routine: how will businesses, in general, look postcrisis? Are there any sectors that will simply disappear? What are the sectors that will fare better? How will the alternatives industry react and adjust to challenges imposed by the “new normal”? Are there any strategies that will gain more traction in this context?
