“Our intuition about the future is linear.
But the reality of information technology is exponential, and that makes a profound difference.
If I take 30 steps linearly, I get to 30. If I take 30 steps exponentially, I get to a billion."
- Ray Kurzweil, Futurist
What I do
I've worked in early stage companies for more than 7 years - as founder, consultant and employee.
Specialities: Developing and testing new business models, building high-performance teams and setting up scalable organizations.
With Singularity Ventures, I help companies to ideate, validate and build sustainable digital business models:
The best business ideas have 3 properties: They solve a significant problem, they are scalable due to the use of technology and they fit the existing capabilities of the company. As a result, I am a firm believer in co-creation: Leveraging the power of industry experts within the company and matching them with innovators from outside.
Organizing ideation workshops using Design Thinking (subject matter experts, e.g. for blockchain or AI, available on request) and steering the idea generation process from start to finish.
The amount of time, money and nerves that have been wasted in the process of building products which nobody wanted is hard to overstate. Luckily, the lean startup movements developed effective tools and procedures to reduce waste significantly.
Identifying the critical assumptions of the business model and validating them in a fast and cost-efficient manner.
Once a model has been validated, it's all about execution. Acquiring customers, establishing operations and, most importantly, hiring a brilliant team that will succesfully navigate the difficult waters of starting a new company.
Setting up a new company from scratch and building a team of A-Players who will lead the company to success.
Who I am
Jan Kroschinski - Entrepreneur & Technology enthusiast - passion for building teams & connecting people - interested in everything that creates value for society
I founded my first company, a smartphone app
with over 1 million users, while doing my masters degree
at Rotterdam School of Management. Ever since, I have been
in love with technology and entrepreneurship. During the last
years, I was fortunate enough to be involved in numerous ventures,
digital projects and to work with outstanding people along the way.
Over the next years, I want to continue building impactful ventures, change to the investment side at some point and eventually take all these experiences to build the world's best education program for entrepreneurship.
"Technology is exponential.
Your smartphone is
already more than 1.000.000 times more powerful than all
computers used for the moon landing combined.
Exponential technology means exponential opportunity: For people, companies and society.
Let us use this opportunity to build something amazing together!”
