On this edition of Revolution, I'm joined by venture capitalist Mark Suster (@msuster). Together, we explore the state of innovation and the differences between emerging and disruptive technology and its impact on business and culture.
Whether you're a business strategist, an entrepreneur, or an investor, innovation is part of your livelihood. As a result, recognizing opportunities to invest, change or innovate is now a fundamental part of business. This is why businesses must dedicate resources to evaluating technology as it begins to influence desirable markets. More importantly, the ability to recognize opportunities must be matched with the ability to experiment and ultimately contribute to the adaptation of current business models.
Moving at the pace of real-time isn't fast enough any more. By looking ahead and studying emerging trends, you will have the insights necessary to introduce change into the organization before "what's next" becomes the new reality. This way, you can compete faster than real-time.
Suster is a 2x entrepreneur who has "gone to the Dark Side" of venture capital. After selling his last company to Salesforce, he joined GRP Partners as a General Partner. Today, he focuses on early-stage technology companies.
