How is it that the likes of MapMyFitness or Mint end up being purchased by the likes of Under Armor or Intuit for hundreds of millions of dollars instead of being created by these same companies?
Isn’t it time companies asked the same questions as these entrepreneurs, but instead of articulating this in a creative brief and being satisfied with a jingle, tagline or even real-time tweet as the output, fast tracked and super sized this expectation in the form of a disruptive technology-led solution?
Isn’t it time to look towards the tens of thousands of viable startups out there for collaboration opportunities?
And if the solution doesn’t already exist, why wouldn’t you start it yourselves?
The mission of ChangeThis: to support and spread great ideas.
Great ideas = Passion. Conviction. Knowledge. Education. Thought. Persuasion. Freedom. Appeal. Change. Point-of-View. Self-Betterment. Inspiration.
The original idea behind ChangeThis came from Seth Godin, and it was built in 2004 by him and a merry band of interns. In the summer of 2005, ChangeThis was turned over to 800-CEO-READ, and they have been keeping the project up and running ever since. To learn more about 800-CEO-READ, visit their website.
