The Startup Effect (For Large Corporations)

Wes O\'Donnell

Inject your company or government agency with a dose of “Entrepreneur” and watch what happens.

Many startups are in a race to become large, mature companies. In fact, large companies should be in a race to become startups… At least in spirit. Run your company or government agency (no matter how large) like a startup and watch amazing things happen. Large companies are like a cruise ship: Turn the wheel and you go straight for a long time before slowly starting to turn… Startups are like a jet ski: Need to go in a new direction? Turn the wheel and you’re off! Running lean, being frugal, the exhilaration of a successful product launch or securing a round of funding.

In this program, Wes coaches large organizations on capturing the entrepreneurial spirit.
