What Business are You Really In?
Analyzing the True Nature and Opportunities of Your (and others’) Ventures
From Fortune 500 companies leaders to NYC doormen, Tara Lemméy gets asked about how to bring a new idea to market. What’s something they all have in common? They need to figure out what business they are really in.
Many people when approaching innovation in their corporate role or in entrepreneurship think the “big idea” is the business. For business strength the great idea is just a jumping off point. The deep understanding of how the business makes profit is the difference maker.
If you have an Instagram view of startups and innovation you’ll be led down the path to pain. Together we’ll talk about figuring out how innovation meets profitability.
Great managers and entrepreneurs know what business(es) they are really in, and what business(es) they should be transitioning to. Successful founders and investors see the reality of the markets they plan to enter and don’t mistake the real business for the imaginary (and perhaps “obvious” one).
Denter Tara Lemméy, CEO LENS Ventures, ignites ideas around invention, innovation and growth. As an inventor, entrepreneur and board member, Tara doesn’t give you the standard take on the world but pushes to think broadly and more expansively toward a prosperous future. She has over 40 patents on technology ranging from sports to drones and was named one of Fast Company’s Most Creative 100.
In this fireside chat, Tara will outline approaches for truly understanding your (and others’) ventures and seeing opportunities that perhaps the rest of the market is missing. If you have something you are working on in your company or startup, bring it and we’ll look at a few cases to workshop live together.
