My Work (What I do ...)
I do a lot – Maybe too much. To the untrained eye it looks like Chaos, bu it all fits together in a couple of interweaving themes:
Entrepreneurship & Innovation
Digital Technology (new products & services)
Behavior (consumer behavior, social networks)
… and how they intersect to form brave new worlds of innovative new products, new techniques, and new ventures.
Half my time is devoted to entrepreneurship:
I advise new ventures. I mentor entrepreneurs. I develop new ventures – from concept to product to market.
- I sometimes consult with growth ventures on product strategy, product development, marketing, pitching and funding.
- I sometimes work with larger organizations on building entrepreneurship and innovation programs, mentoring programs, or ecosystem development and economic development.
- In addition, I sit on a couple of economic development boards, and similar initiatives designed to foster entrepreneurship.
- I research and teach new ways of approaching entrepreneurship, innovation and digital media technology to young students and seasoned entrepreneurs alike.
