In a world with a multitude of small startups, MAXOS is committed to delivering innovation at industry scale. Currently, we can achieve this through organizing industries around Web services and continuous delivery.
We launch new businesses, starting with demand discovery and modest investments. Then we float them for additional talent, rounds of investment, growth, and sale.
We also provide these capabilities to corporate clients, beginning with opportunity discovery workshops.
Industry participants are linking together with cloud services. We can organize this process to create innovation at industry scale.
The biggest factor in success is strong demand for a compelling offer. Our demand discovery team finds those compelling offers within our specialized market of B2B IT services. An expanding network of executives have agreed to hear our offers as “rocketpitches”, find the truly interesting proposals, and improve them. We offer equity and other rewards for good advice.
A personal record that goes beyond existing electronic health records to securely store data that is big (full images, genome, biome, proteome), long (lifetime, time series from sensors and apps, and real time streams), and hot (confidential). HumanDB will improve care, advice, and research. Ultimately, it will give every human a representative to interact with smart services.
We came together to expand on this point of view and take action.
