Exponential Organizations (ExO) w/ Kris Østergaard

We're excited to kick-off 2016 with Kris Østergaard (DARE2), who will hold an intro evening with group sessions on Exponential Organizations. The event will be in English.

Why new organizations are 10 times better, faster, and cheaper – and how your company can be too!

"EXPONENTIAL ORGANIZATIONS should be required reading for anyone interested in the ways exponential technologies are reinventing best practices in business.”—Ray Kurzweil, Director of Engineering at Google 

Not long ago, it took 20 years to make a billion dollar company. The new communication platform Slack did it in 8 months. Airbnb and Uber have reached 20 and 50 billion dollar valuations respectively in just 5 years putting the hospitality and transportation industry into panic mode. This breed of companies is not isolated to Silicon Valley. Danish startups such as Zendesk, Trustpilot, Universal Robots, Endomondo, and BeMyEyes have also gained huge traction in a relatively short amount of time. So, what is it that they are all doing right?

The answer is that they are all exponential organizations or ExOs. ExOs have a sling of characteristics that make them grow ten times faster than their competitors.

Now you can learn to use the same characteristics – before your competitors do – with a cutting edge session that focuses directly on enlightening and developing the exponential aspects of your business.

Kris translated the book by Samil Ismail into Danish and is THE Danish ExO-expert. He is also one of the brains (together with Laila) behind DARE2, DARE2Mansion, thinkubator and many other awesome projects. You can follow Kris on twitter over at @KrisOestergaard.

You can find the book in English and Danish.

Doors open at 17:00.

    Could you use 15 key insights from the talk in note-form? Then I will happily provide mine, thank you for an awesome event with a ton of interesting people and a great speaker. Hope to see all of you soon again! :)

    Hi guys. If any of you are interested in diving into the subject of MTP (..or Massive Transformative Purpose) I'll be more than willing to help. I have been working with core ideas for a number of years now, and have helped startups as well as international brands defining their purpose - both B2C and B2B. You can PM me here or mail me at: [masked]. If you are bootstrapping it's for free! :)

    On the theme of interface (fully mobile) and holocracy (they don't even have a CFO to handle pay checks), someone shared with me this interesting case from Holland

    Great event, very inspiring speak Kris!

  • Paolo L.

    Interesting, rather than the "usual" (although exciting) startup crowd, got to meet people dealing with innovation in more established organisations. An eye opener on what is going on for me.

    Organized event.

    • Sebastian S.

  • Axel

    Hi - I can be there tomorrow night, but taking the time is a stretch for me with other projects right now. Since some of you are so keen on going, I'm going to un-RSVP myself. Hope to hear some comments or summary afterwards from someone. Enjoy!

    January 5, 2016

    • Sebastian S.

      Thanks! Follow #LeanCPH on twitter, hope there'll be some impressions too. -S

    Hey Sebastian, I am currently on the waiting list but am super keen to be there. I was thinking about travelling from Aarhus but If I turn up at the door tomorrow, will I just get knocked back??

    1 · January 5, 2016

    • Roxane

    Look into
    Last year I decide to make a Facebook group to join like minded people. Because I got my attention of the book EXPONENTIAL ORGANIZATIONS and I was blown away of the idea and the research behind!

    1 · January 5, 2016

  • Erik K.

    Noticed Seb. I will arrive - but a little late due to a late task for a customer. THX for a very interesting meet up topic!

    1 · January 4, 2016

  • Sebastian S.

    Hej guys, please remember to update your status if you cannot make it to the event ASAP, so that folks on the waitlist have the opportunity to join :)

    Happy new year
