The books Bold and Abundance by Peter H. Diamandis and Steven Kotler inspire us to think about “How to Go Big, Create Wealth and Impact the World,” marking a radical shift in how we guide our clients in using exponential technologies, moonshot thinking, and crowd-powered tools to create extraordinary wealth, while also positively impacting the lives of billions. We gain a deeper understanding of how exponential technologies are both disrupting today’s Fortune 500 companies and enabling upstart entrepreneurs to go from idea to billion dollar company faster than ever before, using the power of 3D printing, artificial intelligence, robotics, networks and sensors, and synthetic biology.
Drawing on insights from billionaire entrepreneurs Larry Page, Elon Musk, Richard Branson, and Jeff Bezos, Diamandis, explores the entrepreneurial secrets and best practices that allow anyone to leverage today’s hyper-connected crowd like never before; from incentive competitions and crowdfunding campaigns to building communities of exponentially enabled individuals willing and able to help today’s entrepreneurs make their boldest dreams come true. We want to empower the exponential entrepreneur and emerging technologies, thinking at scale, and unleash the awesome momentum of crowd-powered tools.
