Catching Unicorns: The new frontier of growth and innovation investment decision-making

World over corporate growth efforts, along with start-ups, have continued to fail 70-90%. Now a statistical tool, MESE™, developed by Thomas, is more than doubling the odds of success by enabling executives to better quantify and manage risk associated with NPD, M&A and corporate venture capital – helping them find and lasso the unicorns that will disrupt the market and provide exponential growth opportunities.

In this session Thomas will share his journey, the science, process, and performance of MESE™, along with the ongoing research that drives his life’s ambition to reduce business failure. Thomas is a highly engaging speaker with the unique ability to make the most complex appear simple.
