Event Details

Ecosystems are not just about the biosphere, but increasingly express an evolving more resilient strategy that allows some organizations to flourish while others miss out on unfolding opportunities.

Apple is a firm most often associated with these synergistic connections, evident in its unparalleled growth and revenue acceleration. Faster and less transparent than Google or Facebook, the ecosystem seems to have floated all boats in Apple's rising sea. Don't think ecosystem strategies only fit technology firms. Those firms who choose to participate and grow an ecosystem create sets of strategic opportunities. Can they perhaps enhance opportunities for Chicago Small Businesses?

Join us for our usual lively discussion of selected background articles* over lite breakfast and coffee.
