Discovering Opportunities in Cross-Industry Ecosystems
Neil Rubens is a Professor at the Transport and Telecommunications Institute, working on Machine Learning (at the Department of Computer Science) and Industry Analysis (at the Department of Management). He founded startup (sectorMap.net) that is developing tools for cross-industry analysis based on research on innovation ecosystems. He is a founding member of Innovation Ecosystems Network (IEN) and has also spent time as a Visiting Scholar with mediaX at Stanford University. In his talk, Neil discusses these points…
1. Cross-industry opportunities and threats tend to go unnoticed; both internal and external analysts tend to consider relatively few and mostly adjacent industries.
2. An ecosystemic-view provides visual assistance for spotting emerging cross-industry trends, opportunities and threats.
