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.
In this episode, Sean and I celebrate big, legacy businesses taking innovation “moonshots.” What about the Disney+ strategy makes it a Netflix killer. Why SAP + Qualtrics is a killer idea. And how Satya Nadella just might be the killer CEO of the decade. Sean also talks us through his belief that grocery chains, manufacturers, automotive companies, and others need to figure out what their own version of Disney+ looks like—and get started on building it. Because as Sean says, we cannot relegate innovation to a subset of the economy and a subset of society.
