“These are the new shining objects” said Dan Marsh, Managing Partner with Avail, speaking on December 8th, 2016 at the third annual Lane Powell Startups Seminar in Seattle.
Marsh sat on the Entreprenuer panel that discussed the impact on society of “Super Technologies” — Artificial Intelligence, Cloud Computing, IoT, Big Data and Mobile.
“Compared to just 5 years ago, I’m amazed at how easy it is to experiment with AI, BigData and Mobile. Cloud services greatly reduce the time, cost and risk to launch a new vertical, project or entire company. Yet, that ease can easily distract a company from focusing on it’s core differentiators and selling to real market demand. Leadership must ask, ‘does this new super technology actually solve a real problem in the market’”
Marsh was joined on the panel by Mike Howell, Co-founder & CEO of Dolly; Sandi Lin, Co-founder & CEO of Skilljar; and Peter Ozolin, Co-founder and CEO of Manzama.
