Zero to One - Peter Thiel Lectures at Georgetown University
Many people have ideas about how to use technology to change the world and it is amazing to meet and learn from those doing good and those who have succeeded and taking their ideas on to the next giant level in business. It is great to learn of the work others are doing in helping to change lives through their ideas.
Peter Thiel has been considered a ‘repeat entrepreneur’ amongst many other laudable nomenclatures. The truth is that he has taken ideas from scratch and from the ground stage and constantly looking for new innovative ways so the lives of others will be better.
His book is a strong focus on the future and futurism and solving the next big things out there. Peter Thiel often has the knack for predicting where the next innovation will be going. He believes that there is an idea that is great out there to be solved through technology and believes that it is only through new technologies that we can solve the world problems and this might require all sorts of innovative approaches.
Peter Thiel justifies that finding your own business when you do not have a job is now attainable. Peter has professionally launched new ventures. He is a prominent investor still with the thirst to explore new grounds in innovation, and one of the most prominent and constanate voices on entrepreneurship, technology cultures and scalable start-ups and innovation. Thiel has been going back and forth for more breakthroughs. Technology is not a panacea and things can go badly wrong with it he once said. However,
For Thiel, the world needs more and we will require all sorts of innovation in all sectors to help combat poverty and diseases as well as improve education or create a better living standard. Thiel also believes that, ‘There is no good future where there is not a lot of technology in progress’, and ‘ It is only through technologies that we can solve the problems of this world’. For people around the world to get a living standard like the US needs all sorts of innovation to change the world. Thiel continues to use his gift in innovation and his gift to empower humanity in global finances and security.
During question and answer time, there were many brilliant questions from Students and attendees at the event, and Thiel was able to do justice to all the questions on various topical issues revolving around technology start-ups to empowering the young generation. I was one of those who posed a question to Peter Thiel. I asked Thiel "Do you think the world have had enough of the technology and that their will be a slow-down period where everyone will feel complacent and feel they 've had enough of tech buzz? I also asked whether their will be a shift in the Monopoly and shift in the dominance at the Silicon Valley regarding new competitors in the field to overtake the tech Giants.
The lectures was given in honor and memory of Michael Jurist, at the 6th Annual Michael Jurist Memorial Lectures. The event took place at the ICC Auditorium, at 7:00 PM on March 31st 2015, and was co-sponsored by Georgetown Young Americans for Liberty, Georgetown Entrepreneurship Initiative, and Venture Capitol.
