AI Isn’t a Strategy

March 8 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm

| TIGER Talk

8000 Walton Parkway Suite 200
New Albany, OH 43054 United States

FRI 3/8/24, 11:30 am – 1:00 pm

Be ready to interact with our presenter, Ryan Frederick, and your fellow participants.

Please arrive at 11:30 am. Eat. Mingle. Make new friends.

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is a beacon of innovation and efficiency in the rapidly evolving business technology landscape. However, the burgeoning reliance on AI as a panacea for business strategy warrants a critical examination.

While AI offers unprecedented capabilities in data analysis, automation, and customer engagement, it should not be misconstrued as an overall business strategy but as a component of an overall strategy.

Learn how to leverage AI as part of your organization’s strategy without falling into the trap of AI being a strategy unto itself.

Please join us for this TIGER Talk to help you keep an appropriate perspective on the role AI should play in setting a winning business strategy!


Our presenter, Ryan Frederick, is a futurist, strategist, technologist, financier, and author.

Ryan is the Managing Partner at the digital innovation firm Transform Labs (formerly AWH), a Strategy Guide with the strategy consulting firm Simply Strategic, and an advisor with Rev1 Ventures, Alloy Development Co., Jumpstart Ventures, and Techstars.

Ryan blends a technical background with business acumen to provide a balanced perspective of company strategy and business model for the most value and impact. Ryan has been part of starting and growing several product and service companies, including from inception to exit and turnarounds, helping the companies to establish product market fit and long-term sustainability.

Ryan has written two books about starting and managing companies. The first, The Founders Manual, focuses on key insights for entrepreneurs around product, being a founder, and their companies. The second, Sell Naked, shares perspectives on the challenges and opportunities of managing and growing a professional services firm.
