John Mullins is
a familiar figure to members of the world’s leading
entrepreneurs – the Young Presidents’ Organization (YPO),
Entrepreneurs (TiE), and Entrepreneurs’ Organization (EO) –
as well as
to the angel investor and venture capital communities
widely acclaimed books, The New Business Road Test,
and Getting to Plan B, 2009 (with esteemed venture
Randy Komisar) – which are the definitive works on assessing
opportunities and on business models, respectively –
together with his
workshops for YPO, TiE, EO and many others, have made John a
sought-after speaker and educator worldwide.
John’s highly interactive and inspiring workshops on matters relating to starting, financing, and growing fast-growing entrepreneurial companies have found their way to all but two of the world’s seven continents – no call from Oceania or the penguins in Antarctica just yet! – and have thereby made an important contribution to the world’s economic development. As the research clearly shows, fast-growing entrepreneurial companies – not start-ups, not large multinationals – are the drivers of job growth everywhere, from America to Zambia. Helping to unlock entrepreneurial potential and its financing is what John loves to do!
John is one of
the global Thinkers 50, 2009.
