If lifelong learning is good enough for Charlie Munger, then it’s good enough for me.

These last 4 years Martyn and I have learned a great deal as we finally figured out how the modern internet works and have strived to implement lessons learned into our business model as soon as we experienced them.

Right from the outset, however, we knew that if we wanted to build a business based on connection, sharing and generosity these would have to be hard wired into our proposition.

Watch this video on YouTube.

I will be carrying this discussion further next month at Cyberport when I will be giving a Smart Talk there entitled Free – A Revolutionary Business Model.

If you’re interested in hearing more about how our business model is constructed come along on Friday, October 10 and have a listen and a chat.

More info below (gotta love those Cyberport graphic design skills!)

Smart Talk

I’ll then share a lot more at the Paperclip Startup Academy starting on October 23 when I break down our business model into its 7 constituent parts with a series of 45 minute talks entitled The Power of Free.

The first talk, naturally enough, is called The Connection Economy and the series is, as you’d expect, 100% free to attend.

Hope to see you there!
