#MillenniumLive with our Advisory Board Member, Sean Ammirati!

This week on #MillenniumLive…

We had the pleasure to chat with our Advisory Board member, Sean Ammirati, Adjunct Professor of Entrepreneurship at Carnegie Mellon University and Co-Founder & Director of The Carnegie Mellon Corporate Startup Lab. Sean is one of our leading Digital Enterprise Technology experts, and he talked all things entrepreneurship, how he predicts ROI for machine learning will take a giant step forward this year, and how his passion for helping others begin startups is at the core of what he’s doing at Carnegie Mellon, “everyone needs a voice for making the world what it should be.”

About Sean Ammirati

Sean Ammirati joined Birchmere Ventures as a Partner in 2012. Birchmere focuses on seed-stage SaaS and marketplace startup investments. The firm is headquartered in Pittsburgh with a second office in San Francisco.

Prior to joining Birchmere, Sean spent 12 years founding, building and selling businesses in the software and media industries. He was Chief Operating Officer of ReadWriteWeb acquired by the private-equity rollup SAY Media to strengthen its technology channel. Prior to that, Sean was the co-founder and CEO of mSpoke, which was LinkedIn’s first acquisition. His first startup was Peak Strategy, which was acquired by Morgan Stanley.

Sean is an Adjunct Professor of Entrepreneurship at Carnegie Mellon University’s Tepper School of Business and Heinz College. He is also the Co-Founder and Director of the Carnegie Mellon Corporate Startup Lab. With the Corporate Startup Lab, Sean has conducted research and developed tools to help companies better adapt and integrate entrepreneurial best practices into their own innovation processes. The frameworks and tools have helped innovators become more successful entrepreneurs and helped leaders better encourage entrepreneurship and manage their innovation portfolios. The two CSL Co-Founders (Sean and Matt Crespi) also developed and teach a unique project course on corporate entrepreneurship, in which diverse teams of graduate students partner with large companies to test and develop real startup ideas brought by the corporations.

He recently completed his first book The Science of Growth, which was released by St Martin’s Press in April 2016 and was subsequently translated and published in Korean and Mandarin.

The Carnegie Mellon Corporate Startup Lab is an interdisciplinary group focused on researching and promoting the mission of transformative innovation within corporations. We believe startups can exist and thrive anywhere, including in large corporations. Fundamentally, a startup within a company is the same as one inside a garage: a group of entrepreneurs trying to make the world a better place using new ideas and inventions.
