AlmaLinks New York City hosted John Frankel for a discussion on “Technology Today: How to Benefit from the Industrial Revolution of Our Time.”
John is the founding partner of ff VC where he has been an early-stage venture investor since 1999. John was one of the earliest investors in Quigo Technologies, which was purchased by AOL in December 2007, and in Cornerstone OnDemand (CSOD on NASDAQ), which had a successful IPO in March 2011.
- John showcased the comparisons of the disruption that the tech industry is experiencing today to that of the industrial revolution. The difference is that today we can see and realize that we are a part of this changing world and quickly adopt and implement things. Although the challenge of replacing those stuck in the old world order will be a big challenge.
