John Mullins is a familiar figure to members of the world’s leading communities of entrepreneurs – the Young Presidents’ Organization (YPO), The Indus Entrepreneurs (TiE), and Entrepreneurs’ Organization (EO) – as well as to the angel investor and venture capital communities globally. His widely acclaimed books, The New Business Road Test and Getting to Plan B (with esteemed venture capitalist Randy Komisar) along with his newest book The Customer-Funded Business are definitive works on assessing opportunities and on business models. His writings together with his workshops for YPO, TiE, EO and many others, have made John a sought-after speaker and educator worldwide.
John’s highly interactive and inspiring workshops on matters relating to starting, financing, and growing fast-growing entrepreneurial companies have found their way to all but two of the world’s seven continents – no call from Oceania or the penguins in Antarctica just yet – and have thereby made an important contribution to the world’s economic development. As the research clearly shows, fast-growing entrepreneurial companies – not start-ups, not large multinationals – are the drivers of job growth everywhere, from America to Zambia. Helping to unlock entrepreneurial potential and its financing is what John loves to do!
