Successful companies like Facebook, Amazon, Tesla, and Apple have transcended industry boundaries successfully by leveraging platform business models and AI.

Think about how Tesla is learning from its drivers to build a fully self-driving car and how it moved into energy storage systems. Or how Amazon evolved from an e-commerce platform into a cloud platform, Amazon Web Services, and then into intelligent assistants with Alexa and further into the off-line grocery business with the acquisition of Whole Foods.

But, you should not think only the big and mighty with mega VC funding can change the world. Our purpose is to help you to transform your business.

To do this, we will discuss and share insights as well as case studies on how to

  • Change your business model
  • Launch your new platform
  • Learn faster than the competition
  • Use tools like API to expand your business
  • Overcome irrational fear and turn it into energy
