Top Five Lessons Learned From Our Singularity University Series [Bonus Episode]
Key Links Singularity University In this podcast, our goal is to uncover some of the most innovative companies leveraging leading-edge technology, like Singularity University. Companies like SU are taking on the global goals with social-impact driven business models. We want this podcast to be a resource for you to learn about the innovative tech of our time and integrate it into your business model. I've learned a ton in this recent singularity university series and I hope that you learned as much as I did. With that said, I wanted to share with you a quick recap of my top five lessons learned that I learned in this series. Take Away 1: When you're building out an exponential technology business, one of the best ways to start is just to focus on building a regular company and focusing on solving a problem that you think that you're uniquely good at that you will be able to specialize in in the marketplace and watch how that company develops organically. Take Away 2: One of the best ways to bring technology into your business is to hire someone that specializes in the technology that you want to leverage. Take Away 3: Once you get into the technology game, it's advantageous to actually study all the different kinds of exponential technologies so you can stay on top of the marketplace. Take Away 4: You don't have to be a technologist to get into the business of exponential technology. The best way to start is just to become more data centric. Take Away 5: Maybe I'm a little bit biased on this, but I really enjoyed getting the insider scoop of the latest and greatest of what singularity is up to in the world and their game plan over the next 10 years. In the SU series, we heard from some of the top minds at SU on how to leverage exponential technology and incorporate it into your own business, the implications that exponential technology will have on your future and on the impact this technology will have in solving the Global Goals. We will be taking a short break and when we come back we will start a series Impact Venture Capital, Private Equity Firms and how to measure impact with your portfolio companies at scale. Stay tuned! Listen in to hear more about my 5 biggest takeaways from the SU series.
