The rapid pace of technological change across all industries has been disrupting legacy organizations in recent years. Cisco’s CEO John Chambers believes that only 1 out of 3 major corporations will survive the next 25 years and as he said at last year’s CISCO Live conference, “We need to change.”
Since 2010, the business world has witnessed the emergence of a new type of company – the Exponential Organization – that has revolutionized how companies accelerate their growth and success by leveraging new organizational principles and exponential technologies.
The traits exponential organizations exhibit and how companies of all sizes can benefit from integrating these traits are the key elements of the Exponential Organizations Workshop, and the focal point of Ismail’s book, Exponential Organizations: Why New Organizations are Ten Times Better, Faster and Cheaper Than Yours (And What To Do About It), which won the 2014 Frost and Sullivan Growth, Innovation and Leadership (GIL) Book of the Year award.
Participants at this one-day crash course will walk away with a clear understanding that if their organizations do not adopt the Exponential Organizations principles and frameworks, they might be left behind in this age of disruptive technology.
In addition to learning from and interacting with Ismail, the Exponential Organizations Workshop is an opportunity to network and share ideas with local business leaders across all industries. In March of this year, the first Exponential Organizations Workshop in Miami had over 200 people and 130 companies in attendance.
“Entrepreneurs and dreamers all over the world have the ideas, ingenuity and talent to enable exponential innovation,” says Rokk3r Labs CEO Nabyl Charania. “Salim Ismail’s Exponential Organizations Workshop in partnership with Rokk3r Labs exists to help entrepreneurs and business leaders understand how to harness exponential technologies and innovative organizational techniques to create ventures that change the world.”
Exponential Organizations leverage an abundance of talent, resources and ideas with cutting-edge technology and innovative business strategies to create highly scalable companies that are 10 times more impactful than their competitors. These companies, many of which have reached billion-dollar valuations in just a few short years, generally exhibit a set of common traits, including what Ismail calls a “Massive Transformative Purpose” (MTP) – a higher aspirational calling that empowers and enables the impetus for rapid growth for companies, and brings amplification and cohesion to aspirations.
Some of the best examples of exponential organizations are ridesharing service Uber and short-term real estate rental market Airbnb, who have both demonstrated various characteristics of exponential organizations such as leveraging exponential technologies and harnessing abundance to achieve billion-dollar valuations in just a few short years.

May 13 2015– California based TripVerse.co announce the release of new iOS travel plan sharing platform, aim to make travelling a shared experience with platform that allows users to create, view, share, and discover trip ideas with ease.
Gone are the days of scribbling travel plans and must-see locations on the back page of travel guides or bits of paper, only to lose them when you need them most. With TripVerse users can create aesthetically pleasing travel itineraries on their mobiles with must-see locations, friend’s recommendations and offline maps available wherever and whenever they need them. The trip plan platform beautifully displays the planned adventure with photos of the locations, and integrated maps, to spark delight and jealousy in friends and family, and make it easier to find the spots when on the move.
Users can sign up to TripVerse on their website, or download the iOS app for free on the Apple App Store. The easy to use website also offers the option share trip information and gain new ideas from friends and family via Facebook.
“TripVerse is like an interactive Instagram for travel stories, where users create travel stories by masterfully curating travel activities instead of creating pictures by applying filters. With TripVerse users can soak up hot tips and inspire new adventures with their nearest and dearest at the touch of a button.” Benny Kao, Co-Founder and CEO TripVerse.
The new TripVerse iOS app is integrated with leading location database Foursquare and Googlemaps making it easy to create interesting and adventurous trips and then view them on slick TripVerse trip itinerary viewer. Users can also cache maps of their travel destinations for free, leaving them to enjoy their surroundings without the stress of busy tourist information centres or language barrier issues with unfriendly taxi drivers.
TripVerse users need never again fall victim to extortionate roaming charges when trying to find a hotel or tourist destination while away from home, leaving a bad taste in their mouth when the bills come rolling in. With the TripVerse iOS app, users can prepare everything they step out of the door, and then access their travel plan wherever and whenever they need it while offline.
TripVerse aims to make travelling a shared experience by offering access to the trip plans of family and friends to take advantage of their tips about where (and where not) to visit. According to Facebook, 84% of their users are inspired by friends’ past trips. The Gap year generation are starting to travel at a younger age, and visiting more off-the-trail locations around the world. With TripVerse family and friends don’t need to fret about their loved ones whereabouts, as they can easily access their shared trip plans and follow their progress.
Trips can be saved online on the TripVerse website, meaning that regardless of any calamities that may strike, the travel itineraries will be safely saved online to be downloaded to any iOS device.
TripVerse offers much more than websites such as TripAdvisor due to the personalized nature of the service, offering valued recommendations from family and friends, rather than general reviews by people that users have never met. Existing websites such as Tripit offer great services for finding flights and accommodation, but are lacking in valuable information for activities and sites of interest. TripVerse has been designed to fill in the gaps in the existing market, providing a product which covers all bases.
TripVerse was created by a small group of travellers who were frustrated by the lack of smart ways to carry their travel plans on the road. The TripVerse team believe that an authentic, immersive travel experience can be a journey of self-discovery that provides travellers new appreciation and perspective. But not everyone has the self-confidence, knowledge, resources or time to research and experience a destination like a local. TripVerse makes traveling easy and fun by building an offline-accessible itinerary viewer and social platform to share and discover new travel ideas.
