Has a company that’s allowed expenses to get out of control the way Time, Inc did ever learned fiscal discipline and come back?
See The Blurb for a telling article by Karl Taro Greenfeld in the LA Times about what Time, Inc was best at — spending money.
This passage gives a small view into it.
Even if Time knew how to reinvent itself (big if), when a team is used to this kind of largesse, can it ever become scrappy again?
Any examples out there?
Cloudy with a chance of computing
The cloud computing industry is one of the more mature sectors in tech, but investors and entrepreneurs keep finding fresh opportunities in the space. Top smart money VCs have poured over $7B into cloud computing since 2012.
Recently, we partnered with Willis Towers Watson to produce a re-insurance innovation benchmarking survey, and asked nearly 600 re-insurance and investment professionals who the most innovative player in the re-insurance world is.
The “Most Innovative” incumbent? Munich Re.
Excited to announce that president & CEO of Munich Re America, Anthony Kuczinski, is joining us at The Future of Fintech conference June 19 – 21st at Jazz at Lincoln Center.
