The idea is to create knowledge skills and making capabilities, with emerging Exponential technologies intersecting smart devices, cloud computing, Artificial Intelligence, nanotechnology, robotics to create products and services that leverage the democratic power of tech. 2/
It's experimentation all the way. Research is okay, but experimentation and prototyping go much farther in understanding problems better and better. That's the design way. Exploring alternatives over picking from existing solutions. We're trying to impact a billion. #PMxD 3/

I will now proceed to go on a #tweetrant / #tweetorial with regards to #Pharmaceutical #biotech pricing (focus on #cancer).

Very timely, also see @WSJ wsj.com/articles/big-p… on price hikes.

For the record, no #COI / #FCOI. Feel free to contribute to this discussion.
Lets look at the problem from the @PhRMA / business perspective. And lets suppose you are a wonderful company, started by wonderful people who just want to make the world a better place (I know, not real, but stay with me for a minute).
You start with a great idea / or pipeline platform and start selling this concept to #VC #VentureCapital, and lets assume that this is actually a really good idea. What is the needed return on investment to make this worth while. A: further R&D must exceed the cost of capital.

[THREAD] In chapter 4, we discuss how to solve for #HumanCapital challenges in #VC. So if we haven’t found a strong argument why we shouldn't try & build a fund from scratch as there appears no structural barrier to entry that cannot be overcome — how do we therefore do this?
1.) Where to look first?

The churn in top tier performance is drastically increasing as the VC market matures & #Alpha is dispersed due to the inherent inefficiencies. Only the best funds plan for succession.
2.) Ultimately, VCs firms are small partnerships. Behavioural challenges in #InvestmentPartnerships include:

•Economic Allocation
•Shared Decision Making
•Diffused Responsibility
•Personal Risk Minimisation
•Go-along-to-get-along Interaction

1/ Hey #entrepreneurs #CXO #VC #Marketers,

Since Zuckerberg / Evan Spiegel (Snapchat) may no more be the youngest billionaire, you need to take a note of who it is and what it means to create and market new business in the future.

Time for #VC to start funding the Instagram/social-media celeb to fin success.

Kris Jenner (mom who master-minded Kylie's success) can start fund-raising for KimKylie Fund for such celebs
