According to its CEO, this is how MoviePass plans to make money.

The CEO compares this to Netflix and Spotify in their early days in building their subscriber base.

The business model lies in building a subscriber base which includes the 89% of the movie goers (200 million people) that go to 4 to 5 movies a year spending say 60 dollars and now will spend 120 dollars per year as subscribers watching more movies.

 

 

 

The CEO of IDEO explains how your “creative capacity” is the key to surviving automation

Creative leadership doesn’t require being a lone genius: It requires setting some design constraints for how you work, and flexing a few basic behavioral muscles that you already have.

— Focus and execute a task in intense bursts of energy ( sprints, deep dives etc)

— Nurture your curiosity

— Become more adaptable

— Abolish hierarchy and encourage inter disciplinary communication
