Each month, “Ammirati on Innovation” episodes will look at ways that the disruptive-startup mentality is spreading beyond young entrepreneurs to big established corporations. Serial entrepreneur, venture capitalist and Carnegie Mellon B-school professor Sean Ammirati, who sits at the intersection of these high-change dynamics, provides insight.
The Big Themes:
- Apple and a thousand Intel employees: The M1 chipset Apple wanted was a billion-dollar investment in 5G, which they did in 2019. Will Apple use M1 to go up against AWS?
- The 800-pound gorilla: Microsoft has a culture that looks less transactional and more collaborative. They are a Trojan Horse – and an 800-pound gorilla.
- Oracle and SAP are back at it again: They’re both creating elegant and powerful new apps for industry-specific solutions in what promises to be a huge new market.
- Transform the industry: How we can be business partners to transform healthcare, manufacturing, automotive, and mobility – and how to adjust those businesses over the next 12 to 18 months.
The Big Quote: “I literally can’t come up with anybody other than potentially Jeff Bezos, who just wants to be CEO of this whole thing, who this isn’t a win for spinning out AWS at this point.”
