Increase the value of your companies by seizing the true power of digital transformation
The Tesla Model S. The Uber aggregator business model. The Amazon bookstore. What do they all have in common? They're all smart. Smart products, smart business models and smart services created by data-driven tech companies that have dominated their industries and produced outsized returns for their investors.
Now the high technology of digital transformation has matured to enable any traditional company to increase its competitiveness and growth profile by developing tech-facilitated business models and other intangible assets. A digitally transformed company uses data to increase its sales through innovation and invention, to increase its margins through operational efficiency and to increase its valuation multiple through the digital rerate.
Founder and principal consultant of today's leading digital operating partners firm, Bruce Sinclair has been helping companies digitally transform for almost a decade, first as an independent consultant and then as an operating partner for a middle-market private equity firm. Whereas his first book, IoT Inc, is the gold standard business book for leadership in enterprises, this book applies those lessons for value creation in private equity.
Digital transformation is leading to structural changes in all industry sectors, and associated with any such changes are investment opportunities. Not just by betting on smart companies, but by buying companies and making them smart.
This is your playbook to seizing the true power of digital transformation for your portfolio companies.
