What is Out Of The Cave?
The old guard is trying to move us all toward a centrally planned “Goldilocks” economy but the outcome is ever increasing pressure on those outside the “inner circles” and a tightening vice around small to medium businesses.
We use disruptive technologies to defend our markets, grow our businesses and acquire competitive advantages in several green fields.
In this age of consolidation and “Walled Gardens” we are not out to be ingested into the nearest Borg-like Behemoth that is trying to eat the world. That is not “a successful exit” to us.
We’re out to cultivate unassailable footholds in our own niches and to create viable lifestyle businesses within our communities.
We think in generational increments and build our businesses in ways which can withstand, perhaps even benefit from systemic shocks which would topple a dinosaur.
If we were to choose a word to describe it we would pick “Anti-Fragile”, from the Nassim Taleb book describing the phenomenon of things that acquire strength through volatility.
