Come and meet the author of the best seller Crossing the Chasm, Geoffrey A. Moore. Essential read for every Startup Founder.


The mis-famous Chasm where all startups dies, do you know about it?

About: Geoffrey Moore 

Managing Director, Geoffrey Moore Consulting
Venture Partner, Mohr Davidow Ventures
Chairman Emeritus, TCG Advisors, The Chasm Institute and The Chasm Group
Member of the Board of Directors, Akamai Technologies and several pre-IPO Companies


Geoffrey Moore is an author, speaker and business advisor to many of the leading companies in the high-tech sector, including Cisco, Cognizant, Compuware, HP, Microsoft, SAP, and Yahoo!.

Geoffrey divides his time between consulting on strategy and transformation challenges with senior executives and speaking internationally on those same topics. His latest book Escape Velocity: Free Your Company’s Future from the Pull of the Past, keeps this intent in mind and is the result of his years of experience working with large enterprises.

Escape Velocity is Moore’s sixth book for business leaders in the high-tech sector. His first book, Crossing the Chasm, which addresses the challenges of gaining initial adoption for disruptive innovations, continues to be a best seller and required reading in business schools and entrepreneurship curricula. Moore wrote four subsequent books which addressed the challenges faced by management when competing in hyper-growth markets (Inside the Tornado) and those faced by investors when managing a high-tech stock portfolio (The Gorilla Game). The two additional books both address the organizational challenges faced by established enterprises, in one case posed by the volatility of the technology sector overall (Living on the Fault Line), in the other by the need to reignite innovation in mature franchises (Dealing with Darwin). Escape Velocity rounds out these efforts in service to established enterprises by laying out a comprehensive program for engaging with next-generation trends while maintaining their core franchises.

Moore is an active public speaker who gives between 30 and 60 speeches per year, split roughly evenly between industry events and company-specific meetings. His speaking practice is global, addressing a spectrum of topics of interest to the high-tech sector, including high-tech market dynamics, business strategies, innovation, organizational development, and industry futures.

Earlier in his career, he was a principal and partner at Regis McKenna, Inc., a leading high tech marketing strategy and communications company, and for the decade prior, a sales and marketing executive in the software industry. He has a bachelor’s degree from Stanford and a doctorate from the University of Washington, both in English Literature.

      Hi Raj, I noticed that the slides posted are not the same as those Geoffrey used that day (some slides are missing). Is there a way to get the same slide deck he used?

    I really appreciate the speakers you bring to us and all the work it takes to set this up. I must admit, I was disappointed that my 6 worder was not even read..lol. Shows that I better improve it. Perhaps the issue is that few are aware of how very serious the coming "silver tsunami" is going to be. Either way, I think your team is great. Thank you so much.
