Technology Exponentials, Nanotechnology & Future Innovation

Steve Jurvetson

Steve Jurvetson, managing director of Draper Fisher Jurvetson, brings a visionary perspective to his analysis of the high tech innovation that will lead to the companies likely to thrive in the 21st century. For anybody who has wondered what, exactly, is "nanotechnology" and why there is so much excitement about it in the scientific and technology communities, Jurvetson provides the answers.

His keynote address was delivered at the Entrepreneurship 101 Conference on "Innovation: The Value Imperative," sponsored by the Center for Entrepreneurship and Engineering Management (CEEM) of the University of California, Santa Barbara (UCSB), on April 25 and 26, 2003.

Creative Destruction: Emergence, Performance, and Extinction in American Business

Richard Foster

Anybody who has invested in or contemplates investing in the stock market and particularly in technology stocks should listen to Richard Foster, senior partner and director of McKinsey & Company, as he tracks the fate of America's corporations in conjunction with their market positions over the decades. Though his deductions are startling and even disturbing because they overturn conventional wisdom, they are also persuasive because based on detailed quantitative research and analysis of data.

Foster's wry sense of humor leavens the analytic nature of his discourse. Because of the complexity of his reasoning, this may be one to record for a second viewing. His keynote address was delivered at the Entrepreneurship 101 Conference on "Innovation: The Value of Imperative," sponsored by the Center for Entrepreneurship and Engineering Management (CEEM) of the University of California, Santa Barbara, on April 25 and 26, 2003.

How to Predict if Your Company Is Going to Succeed

Ichak Adizes

Ichak Adizes, founder and CEO of Adizes Institute, offers provocative insights into the nature of business by applying a developmental paradigm analogous to the stages of a human being's growth and maturation to the life cycle of companies. What particularly distinguishes Adizes's approach is his deep understanding of the overriding effect of human psychology, both individually and collectively, on the determination of a company's course. It isn't technology that's determinant from Adizes's point of view, but people.

Adizes gave his keynote address in conjunction with the Entrepreneurship 101 Conference on "Innovation: The Value Imperative," sponsored by the Center for Entrepreneurship and Engineering Management (CEEM) of the University of California, Santa Barbara (UCSB), on April 25 and 26, 2003.
