  • Apps have changed the way we communicate, shop, play, interact and travel and their phenomenal popularity has presented possibly the biggest business opportunity in history. George gives you exclusive access to the secrets behind the success of the select group of apps that have achieved billion-dollar success.
    George Berkowski is an entrepreneur who has built businesses in manned space flight, online dating, transportation and mobile apps. His new venture is IceCream ~ a Camera app that never runs out space (and a lot more fun features).

    He is one of the minds behind the internationally successful taxi hailing app Hailo where he led the product team until September 2013. George studied rocket science and economics at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and business at the École Supérieure de Commerce de Paris. He was Chairman of MIT’s Enterprise Forum in the UK and is heavily involved in the UK and US startup scenes. George now divides his time between London and Silicon Valley.
    This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at ted.com/tedx

    An inspiring video indeed. People often sit and convince themselves that whoever is out there making a lot of money is better than they are, or they got lucky with unique opportunities, or someone just handed them enough money to start at least (me included), but in just few minutes, he showed us that any of us can be that rich through simple steps:
    1: Smell an opportunity [look at existing problems, recommend solutions, MAKE these solutions]
    2: Be persistent [it may take years for you to succeed, but giving up is never a solution]
    3: Listen to people [see what they need, offer them an answer]
    4: Whenever you feel like you have no idea what kind of app you want to build, remember it could be anything from gaming apps, messaging apps, or even delivery apps!
    5: There are billions of people out there who are making a lot of money who came from modest families, people who aren't already rich, just like me and you. Keep that in mind while putting the effort into succeeding
    Thanks for updating the video.. P.S: my ears still hurt from the audio tho Cx

    1:18 John D Rockefeller actually died May 23, 1937. His peak net worth was $400B in 1913, in 2017 inflation-adjusted dollars according to Wikipedia. Perhaps one reason we'll never see anyone as rich as Rockefeller, is the US government did not collect income taxes until 1913, long after Rockefeller had made much of his money. When he died, his tangible net worth is estimated to have been $26M, he had given the vast bulk of his earnings to philanthropy.

    UBER and Lyft are nothing but Craigslist spammers who bully over all the individuals who need Craigslist but are pushed out of site by such spammers. Also developers must have enough resources to pay their 30-day bills each month for a very long time while developing their app. Then they have to wait a lot longer to make any money to pay for life when users expect all the apps for free which is so rude to the developers.

    I have the idea. I have the details. I know it would go viral. I don't know how to program and would need some legal advice. This idea came to me. I watch the news I see problems that could be solved and this is a simple app that could help so many problems we hear about on the news on a daily basis. And many other types of apps would come out right after it is made. I would give someone a percentage to help me but I have to own at least 51%. My app is not a game it is a way to help society. It is a way to protect society. There are other ideas that I have that I have and I have never thought of any of them. I started with the thought of why hasn't someone else done this before and the details came. Some ideas I have in dreams. They are all super complicated and would take agreements with tech giants. This simple app only needs a programer and legal advice and it will work. I just need someone to show me who to take my app to and make it and I would give them a good percentage. I know it will work.
