- J.R.R Tolkein -
I am almost done with writing my next blog post, it’s good, and it’s about your business vision. But last night after watching a great movie, you have to see “The Hobbit”, I know I am a Gandalf freak but it’s really a good movie, I lay down in bed with an old 2011 BusinessWeek magazine. It had an article about a company called Palantir Technologies. In simple words they provide solutions to make sense of a lot of unrelated data, their solutions help to fight terrorism, crime and fraud. Looks like a great bunch of kids with a really helpful solution.
Maybe it was the movie, however as I was reading the article, the company’s head , Alex Karp, was talking about his company’s vision (mission), and I think it’s one of the best vision statement I have ever heard of, so I just have to share it with you! In the article Alex said their grand mission is to “Protect the Shire”, so simple, smart and inspiring. Wow.
