About this talk

A new technology that scales quickly from one to a million users has become a common and straightforward phenomenon. Scaling an organization at exponential speed, however, is quite another matter. Organizational growth is usually linear—incremental and slow. In recent years, however, exponential organizations (ExOs) such as Oculus, Airbnb, WhatsApp, and DropBox have experienced dramatic growth trajectories and achieved multi-billion dollar valuations in just a few years. Unlike traditional businesses that combine assets and workforces within organizational boundaries, ExOs leverage the world around them, such as other people’s cars and spare rooms. In some cases, they are outperforming their competitors by as much as tenfold. Join Scott Abel, The Content Wrangler, for one of the most interesting presentations you will attend all year. Scott's special guest presenter is Salim Ismail, the best-selling author of Exponential Organizations, a sought-after business strategist, and a serial entrepreneur, having founded technology companies including Ångströ, which was acquired by Google in 2010. He is also the Founding Executive Director of Singularity University. Salim is a prolific speaker, having given more than 100 talks in 2017 to audiences of all sizes in 12 different countries.
