About this event

Dr. Maranville is known as 'The Startup Unicorn Trainer' - A unicorn refers to any tech startup company that reaches a $1 billion dollar market value as determined by private or public investment. 

Known as the Startup Unicorn Trainer, Steven Maranville, Ph.D., is Chairman of Maranville Enterprises—the Venture Creation corporation. Scaling-up the Strategic IQ of unicorn-bound ventures, Maranville Enterprises delivers advisory services that equip entrepreneurs with the strategic acumen and leadership expertise essential for gaining and sustaining competitive advantage.

Dr. Maranville boosts the “Vision Acuity” of entrepreneurs who are adrift in the fog of venturing by removing their blind-spots and fitting them with new lenses so they Venture With Vision. Yes, Dr. Maranville is totally blind. And, while lacking eyesight, he abounds with entrepreneurial insight!

With a Ph.D. in Business Administration, Dr. Maranville has studied, researched, written and spoken for 30+ years in the fields of entrepreneurship, business strategy, and organizational transformation.

Drawing on his significant business research, Dr. Maranville contends that those ventures that learn more and faster than their competitors are those that gain and sustain competitive advantage. Therefore, Dr. Maranville conceives ventures as learning organizations—1) infusing them with competitive advantage by teaching entrepreneurs how to build a learning organization and 2) maximizing business performance through developing the learning capacity of those ventures.
