How to build a business that lasts 100 years

”Nature has been in the business of life and death more than any company.” Says Martin Reeves. I liked his Ted Talk that I came across today. It probably has to do with the fact that I knew lifespans of companies where declining, and this was another confirmation for me on that fact.

Companies need a different architecture to ‘survive’ over time if their goal is not ‘to be sold for a high profit in the shortest amount of time’, but the goal is to build a lasting healthy company. Martin turns to our own immune system to learn how to build up a company like that and flourish in a time of change and the need for high adaptability.
