GIST TechConnect: Disrupting Markets Through Transparency and Empowerment
In this GIST TechConnect, Ovidiu Bujorean and Rich Barton, co-founder and Chairman of Zillow and Glassdoor, discuss disruptive entrepreneurship one-on-one. This program looks at attributes in an entrepreneur and in a startup that are consistent with disruption whether it’s completely restructuring an industry or turning a small cog in a large wheel on its end. A disruptive innovation is an innovation that helps create a new market and value network, and eventually disrupts an existing market and value network (over a few years or decades), displacing an earlier technology. Curious about turning ideas into reality? How to identify opportunities and markets ripe for disruption? How to build brands that attract investors? How to build great teams who build great products? If you are striving to create change and disrupt the status quo, this program will help answer questions and offer suggestions from one of the most successful disruptive innovators in the U.S., Rich Barton.
