News and Blogs from e-thomsen
2018 was the first full year for e-thomsen music, and although it isn’t exactly Universal or Sony Music it has actually started to get close to break even. The most popular artist was Soundtrack Your Life with 25.000 streams of the context dependent tracks. What does that mean? It means tracks that really only make[…]
The holiday season is a great time to recharge, spend time with the people you should have spent more time with all year, recharge and get inspired. However, breakthrough innovation and inspiration rarely comes from the sources we always use, but rather ones we stumble across by chance and my personal favourite is just hitting[…]
One of the greatest AHA! moments I had when I started to spend time with VCs and PEs some years ago was that they did not look at the path to success the same way I did. In a large corporate we would determine our capability gaps and then, using relatively precisely defined projects, work[…]
Impressively SwanLeap has been ranked as the (privately owned) company with the highest growth rate in North America by Inc.5000.SwanLeap produces NextGen TMS (“Beyond TMS” as the have tagged it) using AI and real-time analytics to automate the supply chain processes. The growth rates are (obviously) second to none despite taking the less obvious route[…]
We get bombarded with articles, interviews and even songs (OK, maybe just one from R.E.M. back in 1987) telling us that “digital” will disrupt everything you do, robots will take over etc.If we look at history, we can firstly safely assume that we have learnt nothing from it, and secondly, that every industrial revolution has[…]
I think we have now all heard the story of how Apple (and Napster) transformed the music industry with the iPod/iPhone and iTunes…so I won’t spend much time on that. The music industry, though, is still an excellent example of some of the consequences of digitisation.After a 40% drop in revenue from 1999 to 2010,[…]
I have been interviewed and you can read the outcome of it on LinkedIN.
As of May 1, e-thomsen will be residing at Pier47 as part of Rainmaking’s collaborative space.Very exciting and hopefully fruitful.
I was really pleased to see an “Incumbent” category in the Top 5 Digital Contenders from the TPM 2018, because in the media the high profiled startups get a large part of the attention. Flexport, NYSHEX, Freightos and the like are grabbing headlines, however, despite exponential growth, they still only touch very few customers compared[…]
I confess. I did not participate at the TPM 2018 in Long Beach. The snow in my drive way did not remove itself, so I have been pretty occupied with that during the duration of it.However, I have been able to follow a lot of the discussions via social media and in particular the launch[…]

Ownership is a mindset. Your customers and colleagues know that you may not have the answers to everything, but they expect you to take ownership. Your shareholders expect you to treat their money as if it were your own.
To stay relevant you need to continuously be learning. It should be a deliberate process that means taking risks and introducing a level of randomness to your life. However, when you do this, you will constantly be creative, innovative and head of competition – no matter what the current fad is.
Having fun is about doing what you enjoy and not taking yourself too seriously. Successes are not just because of you – and neither are failures. Understanding this helps you to stay effective in a constantly changing environment.
