In 2012, Google acquired Nik Software the company where the concept of potential capital was born. From a two-person startup to the leading software company in the field of digital photography, Nik Software grew through innovation, strategy, investment and its ability to scale. With a self-funding strategy that avoided venture capital, Michael J. Slater grew his company through an unwavering belief in shareholder value and potential as opposed to pure monetary valuation. Michael will share the story of Nik Software, its transformation, and his path to becoming a Potential Capitalist.
