Few takeaways from Steve Case, Co-Founder AOL on ‘Innovation is All About Partners’.
- Partner. It isn’t just about what you do within your organization, but how you connect with other people, particularly entrepreneurs. It could be as a customer, it could be as a minority investor, it could be a joint venture, perhaps even an acquisition.
- The third wave is going to be about integrating it in a more seamless, pervasive and sometimes even invisible ways.
- The reality is the sectors most ripe for disruption in the next 10 to 20 years are things that are so important to our lives, like how we stay healthy or how our kids learn or food we eat or how we manage transportation systems. These are regulated things. And we can debate what the regulations should be, but there are going to be some regulations. So understanding that dynamic is going to become more important… As Uber got more scale, and particularly as they went global, it was shut down in Germany and South Korea and a bunch of countries because they haven’t quite figured out the policy aspect to it. So this is going be one of the inherent challenges.
