QUANTUM'S CHRIS ARRINGTON SHARES INTERNATIONAL BUSINESS INSIGHTS ON DESIGN THINKING, LEAN STARTUPS, DEEP ANALYSIS

A trip to London with 14 business students yielded a number of insights about international business.  The trip was led by Quantum Media Principal Christine Arrington, who guided 14 business students from Utah State University, her alma mater, on the ten-day trip.

Here is Chris' report.

First, it was astounding the degree to which businesspeople in London have embraced design thinking and the lean startup process. 

The students spent half a day at True Start, part of Google’s innovation campus in east London, where they presented business startup ideas they had prepared and were guided through the lean startup process.  The setting was an open-space office, with no cubicles, and with large tables, white boards, and lots of sticky notes everywhere--exactly like such spaces in Silicon Valley.

OFF THE RECORD: A CONVERSATION WITH MEDIA DISRUPTOR TODD KRIZELMAN

Krizelman co-founded MediaRadar, the SaaS big-data and analytics firm that revolutionized the ad selling process. He spoke to a packed room about the enormous challenges faced by media that sell ad inventory and the advertisers who buy it. He also explained how he started the company and their philosophy of innovating through listening to customers. 

Since its launch, MediaRadar has grown to 400 employees and records than $20 million in annual revenue. MediaRadar collects its own data, then packages it to meet the specific needs of ad sales professionals.

Before starting MediaRadar, Krizelman held positions at media conglomerate Bertelsmann, working in Barcelona and New York. It was at Bertlesmann that Krizelman first saw the opportunity to change how media companies collect and assess information on where advertising money is spent.

Before earning a degree from Harvard Business School (2003), Krizelman co-founded and served as CEO of theglobe.com, one of the first news and information sites launched on the web. Between 1994 to 2001, he led the company from inception through a successful public offering on NASDAQ.

Quantum's Brian O'Leary is the moderator for this event.
