Why You Can't Choose Between Creativity And Data

The advertising industry has changed dramatically. Brand CMOs have become responsible for business objectives in addition to brand goals — and that impacts everyone in a leadership role, big brand or not.

My Three Decades at Disney Taught Me Not to Fear Automation

At a recent conference in Hyderabad, India, I was given second billing to a robot.

Surprise, Your Next Customer is Closer Than You Think

You know the scene: A sleek-looking storefront, a velvet rope, stone-faced security guards—and a line 100-people deep trying to see if they can score a pair of rare sneakers or a limited-edition T-shirt.

Will Equity Crowdfunding Live Up to Its Hype?

The JOBS Act, with its crowdfunding provision, was supposed to be kick off a revolution. Now anyone could invest in high-risk startup equity.

ICOs, Crowdfunding And Our Convenient, Complicated Futures: An Interview With Slava Rubin

“Every opportunity deserves the right to fail.” Slava Rubin knows what he’s talking about. Co-founder of Indiegogo, Rubin was rejected by 93 venture firms before successfully creating the first major crowdfunding platform.
