Best-Selling Author, This Might Get Me Fired
For 15 years Greg Larkin has been a catalyst for huge inflection points: exits for startups, and exponential growth in Fortune 500 companies. In 2005 he was the first to publicly predict the collapse of the US housing market while working for a fintech startup called Innovest. Once Innovest was acquired he made the transitIon from startup entrepreneur to corporate intrapreneur launching over 33 products that created $485 million in revenue at Bloomberg, Google, Uber, Goldman Sachs, and across the Fortune 500. All of his breakthroughs possessed the following traits:-Great innovation starts with a coalition of polar opposites working in total solidarity.-Entrepreneurs run toward urgent problems (wannapreneurs run away from them)-Breakthrough products have a monopoly on courage -not technology.Along the way he’s encountered every form of resistance and made every mistake. He is also the best-selling author of This Might Get Me Fired, and the founder of Bowery315.
