David Tarver turned a basement business beginning into Telecom Analysis Systems, which was sold in 1995 to multinational British firm Spirent. He's written a book about his business philosphy and will be a speaker at Friday's TEDx Detroit.
"“It’s very appropriate,” Tarver said. “Because there are a lot of needs that you can see in and around Detroit, and a lot of times we get hamstrung addressing those needs and being concerned with whether they’ll be successful or not. What we need is 100,000 experiments.”
Not all of the experiments will be successful in classic terms, he said, but all of them will help point to what should be done next, at the very least helping future generations."
