Fred McClimans

The synergistic simplicity of disruption and innovation

Disruption and innovation are two beasts of the same mother. Both can lead to the other, and both have one fundamental requirement for success - simplicity, whether by intentional design or natural order. Equally important, by looking for events & trends that have the ability to create future disruption, we can help drive future innovations.

About Fred McClimans:

I'm an analysts by nature, and love solving problems that are just over the horizon. I've started several firms focused on tracking disruptive and innovative trends (the most recent being a pre-launch firm 2020F.com). I've recently been guest lecturing at GMU on entrepreneurial business strategies and how to understand/leverage disruption and innovation in our business and social lives.
