Next Multi-billion Dollar Idea

11/18/2016 Anant Goel & Alan Kyle Goel

What defines the billion dollar idea…

  • The multi-billion dollar size of the market for product and services.
  • The ability to scale product or service and deliver stated ROA/ROI, performance, quality, reliability, and safety.  [ROA: Return on Adoption]
  • The ability to LEVERAGE drivers of growth, such as, capital, energy, cheap labor, technology, other people’s time, or other people’s money to take it viral or go global.

In Summary…

Real billion dollar ideas have multi-billion dollar market size, they are scalable, and they leverage drivers of growth to go viral or global.

Leverage and command over these drivers of growth are constantly changing; as technologies become democratized and use of energy and cheap labor becomes common place. When this happens, the playing field is leveled again and new markets or a new set of drivers of growth or new leveraged advantages must be found.

Those who understand and learn how to use capital, energy, cheap labor, technology, other people's time, other people's money combined with the power of business systems that deliver great value are the ones who create wealth. Once they get such formula correct, huge wealth comes from SCALING that value delivery to the masses at a global scale.

Today the power of leverage is found in many ways. Financial strategies, diverse technologies, business models, outsourcing, communications, web 2.0, social media, advertising, real estate, transportation, to name a few...

To become a billionaire… develop a billion dollar idea… and help a billion people on this planet of over 7 billion humans.

The Next Billion Dollar Idea is here…

Company: MicroVision [NASDAQ: MVIS]

Technology: Laser Beam Scanning [LBS] miniature PicoP Display Engine, 3D scanning, Augmented Reality (AR) and broad base IP Portfolio.

Market: In addition to PicoP projection and heads-up display (HUD) markets, MicroVision is targeting four noteworthy tech arrivals of the last few years that are gaining momentum, and are expected to experience extremely rapid growth in the next few years.

I believe MicroVision has key-stone technology for all of them:

  • Smart Phones with pico Projectors
  • Smart TV/Projector in your Palm
  • Augmented Reality
  • Internet of things
  • 3D Scanning (3D Printing, Self Driving cars, Interface with AR, etc...)

Smartphones: 1.4 Billion were sold during the 2014 calendar year. The companies that make them are desperate for innovation. MicroVision's tech can put a six foot screen in a cell phone. 

Augmented Reality: Really got a boost in public knowledge from Pokemon Go, but many companies have been working hard on this for a long time. Some companies are putting the developer edition of the Hololens to work already, this field should get faster growth than most expect. MicroVision has the best (as of 2015 CES) near eye display of all. Field of view far better than anything else I could find there. Heads up displays, a kind of augmented reality, and MicroVision is right there with technology and IP portfolio.


Internet of Things: Yes, your refrigerator, and all kinds of other things around you will have chips that check data, things you wear, things you use, things you don't even think about. To interact with these things.... displays are needed... what's easier than a tiny device that creates a relatively large display with touch-interactivity?


3D Scanning: 3D Printing has lost some of its buzz, but it's still being used a great deal. It's speeding up manufacturing and testing. It's used for art and prototyping. Being able to scan in 3D is essential for 3D printing. MicroVision’s compact laser scanning, highly accurate, and is relatively low cost. Driver-less cars are shaping up to be a huge growth area, and MicroVision is there with its technology.


MicroVision doesn't need to dominate all of these markets to make its stockholders rich. Serving 10% of smartphones will make crazy wealth for MVIS stockholders.

Can you imagine other applications of this ubiquitous technology?

  • Shopping isle infomercial projectors… in every supermarket and shopping mall,
  • Infomercial projectors in office building hallways, airports, museums, art galleries, fancy restaurants and other commercial and public places,
  • Safety, security and emergency guidelines, instructions and procedures video-on-demand at the industrial, construction and other sites,
  • Emergency kits with video-on-demand instructions for life [or a limb] saving procedures,
  • Advertising outdoor displays for drive-by passenger cars,
  • Video projection for large classrooms, seminars, meetings and conventions,
  • "Revolutionary" laser scanning 3D camera capable of detailed face recognition, among other things,
  •  And the list goes on.

Now imagine that MicroVision’s laser based PicoP display engine is the [only] technology that makes all these wonderful [and high margin] applications possible…with no competition in sight! 

Here’s why I said: “PicoP display engine is the [only] technology”…

“To make the above mentioned applications, you must have three differentiating and enabling functionality: 1) always-in-focus, 2) short throw ratio, and 3) low power consumption.”

I hope to have provoked some thought in your mind, but do your own thinking and due diligence.
