7517 0

Each month, “Ammirati on Innovation” episodes will look at ways that the disruptive-startup mentality is spreading beyond young entrepreneurs to big established corporations. Serial entrepreneur, venture capitalist and Carnegie Mellon B-school professor Sean Ammirati, who sits at the intersection of these high-change dynamics, provides insight. Today, Sean and I talk through the explosive industry cloud market, Amazon and AWS, and some updates about Sean’s work at Carnegie Mellon.

Episode 25

The Big Themes:

  • Taking a victory lap: When you look at those lists, these are technology companies that have figured out how to partner and work within the industry.
  • New Carnegie Mellon masters program: I believe the first masters level joint business degree is to help students prepare to be a product manager.
  • The enemy of my enemy is my friend: But the other part of that is true as well. There’s a lot of moving pieces on the chess board right now.
  • Rockefeller breaking up Standard Oil: After the breakup, he got significantly wealthier. Could the same happen with Amazon and AWS?

The Big Quotes:

  • “I think that the other thing that’s going to be interesting as I kind of look into the back half of 2021 and 2022 is I do think we;’re going to start to actually see a lot more innovation around healthcare.”
  • “The vaccine rollout is nothing short of a miracle.”
