Bourkoff, shared his 2018 reading list in a memo to staff. Bourkoff’s reading list is filled with business books on management and investment strategy, as well as a few on tech trends. But there’s also quite a bit of history and one piece of fiction. Here’s what Bourkoff read.

Bourkoff, the tech, media, and telecom banker who founded LionTree Advisors, is one of those figures.

One of the things I’m most proud of in my entire life is how little I panic before a race these days. I used to be a complete mess, changing my routines, buying new trainers the day before, eating random green pasta in a bid to bulk up my glycogen stores. And don’t get me started on the amount of technology issues I’d run into at 5AM on a race day because I completely changed how I’m going to use it.OK, even as I’m writing this, I know that I’m lying a bit. Just reading back my report from last year yielded two failures on the tech front: I was up first thing in the morning syncing another marathon to run against, and I had no music on my watch.This year, I know the whole routine from top to bottom: this is the tech I’m going to be using to get me through the race (and some alternatives for those who want something different).GPS watchAs you’ll see later in the week in a future diary, the GPS watch is the tech choice of every runner … [Read more...] about The best tech for the London Marathon: the gadgets I’ll be using

Innovation is pushing us, but it’s necessary to move faster.”GolfNow, which works with more than 8,000 courses worldwide, is working on a new point-of-sale tech platform to consolidate services including food orders, merchandise sales and social-media management along with tee times. Updates to the app that will let golfers order food via GolfNow straight from a digital-based wallet are expected before this fall.Such services can boost GolfNow’s goal of convincing tech-averse … [Read more...] about GolfNow looks to tech to grow beyond tee times
Symposium Stockholm unveiled US-based journalist, digital strategist and former The Local blogger Brzezinski as its new top boss on Monday, six months after Spotify founder Daniel Ek and DJ superstar Avicii's manager Ash Pournouri launched the annual event to much hype in the Swedish capital. Mixing the tech and startup scene with the fashion and media industries, the June festival is again set to culminate in the two-day Brilliant Minds conference, where tech gurus, music stars and entrepreneurs get on stage to share ideas during the week of June 6th-12th next year. The basic idea is to connect people who would otherwise not be in a room together. “I believe that business happens in-between. So this is an attempt to bring together different sectors to formulate a long-term sustainable model. The world is changing so fast and our children will have to be innovators, creativity will be a form of survival,” said Brzezinski. The festival gained a lot of international … [Read more...] about US boss for Stockholm international tech bash
