Whether you’re producing T-shirts or mining asteroids for minerals, serial entrepreneur Peter H. Diamandis and research scientist Steven Kotler’s enthusiasm for what’s possible will win you over. Their “Six D’s of Exponentials” framework lays the groundwork for examining the profound opportunities available to today’s “exponential entrepreneurs”: the visionaries already changing the world using new technologies and platforms. Accounts of robotics, genomics and artificial intelligence bring home how much the world will change in the coming decades. The authors share the powerful, inexpensive tools available to everyone right now to fund, build and market your great idea. Chapters on crowdsourcing, crowdfunding and “incentive competitions” – including detailed guidance – are especially helpful. getAbstract recommends this valuable guide to investors, start-ups, entrepreneurs with big ideas and leaders of large organizations.
