Summary

In Go Tech, or Go Extinct, Paul Cuatrecasas shares his revolutionary approach to transforming legacy companies into forward-thinking industry leaders through the strategic acquisition of disruptive technology companies. As the founder and CEO of Aquaa Partners, Cuatrecasas has facilitated more than 45 global merger and acquisition transactions involving technology companies and ranging in size from $1 million to $1.5 billion.

Leveraging insights gained from his one-on-one meetings with C-suite executives of more than 300 large corporations during 2018 and 2019, Cuatrecasas explains why so many corporates are failing at innovation and why technology companies represent the new secret formula for non-tech corporate incumbents to delight their customers and leave their competition in the dust.

Go Tech, or Go Extinct is an insider’s guide to the opportunities available for established companies willing to embrace rapid change without sacrificing their core goals. This resource is designed for ambitious C-suite leaders eager to implement the future-focused actions vital to survive and thrive. Armed with the same priceless wisdom that Cuatrecasas uses to create exponential returns for his clients, you’ll identify and seize smart ideas on how to invest and acquire to radically improve your positioning.

In Go Tech, or Go Extinct, you’ll discover:

  • How the right partnerships and acquisitions not only protect your market position, but transform your share price
  • The new levers of value creation required to multiply established corporations’ market worth
  • Important factors in bringing teams of technology talent into your culture without breaking it
  • And much, much more

If you like straightforward advice and proven, fact-based tactics and don’t mind a departure from traditional culture, then you’ll love Paul Cuatrecasas’ tour de force.

Must read for incumbent company executives playing catch-up in the digital age

I’m a consultant investment banker in the tech sector. I quote Go Tech or Go Extinct at least once a week in investor meetings and board meetings. The lessons and stats compel a new way of thinking about the exponential value of technology in the 21st Century. Great read too.
