Dominic Endicott, Co-Author, Knowledge Towns and Partner, Northstar Ventures

Dominic Endicott is co-author, with Professor David J. Staley, of ‘Knowledge Towns: Colleges and Universities as Talent Magnets’, a 2023 book published by Johns Hopkins University Press[i] proposing how town and gown can collaborate in achieving sustainable economic, environmental, and social progress. He is currently working on ‘The Wealth of Places’ a book exploring the intersection of technology, placemaking, and talent in developing generational wealth strategies in the AI Economy.

Dominic Endicott is a dual UK/US citizen, born in England, raised in Barcelona, and operating between the US, Europe, and Latin America. He speaks Castilian and Catalan, as well as mid-Atlantic English. He studied at the London School of Economics (LSE) and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). He began work at Boston Consulting Group (BCG) in Madrid and subsequently was recruited to Michael Porter’s Monitor Company. He was a partner and head of North America at Cluster Consulting, a Monitor Company spin-off firm initially focused on applying Michael Porter’s Cluster methodology and subsequently pivoted to launching mobile operators. Monitor grew from zero to $100M in revenue in 8 years and was acquired by Diamond Technology Partners in 2000 at a $1 billion valuation. Diamond is now part of PwC. Dominic was then recruited by Booz Allen to reinvigorate their US wireless practice.

The founding team at Cluster set up Nauta Capital in 2005 (AUM $500M), and Dominic was tasked with setting up and managing Nauta’s US operations, in what has become the best performing market for Nauta. At Nauta, he led the first VC investment in Great Call, a US-based firm oriented around technology for older customers and caregivers. Great Call grew from $1M revenue at investment to around a $300M revenue run-rate and was acquired by Best Buy in 2018 for $800M. Other successes include PromoteIQ, acquired by Microsoft for $100m, and InCrowd, recently sold for close to $300m. Dominic is also a partner and board member of Northstar Ventures, which is focused on Society Tech investment, and operates out of Newcastle, London, and Boston. He is also an Advisor at the MET Fund, started out of MIT and focused on the Built Environment.

 ‘Knowledge Towns’ was based on a fully remote collaboration between Dominic Endicott and David Staley beginning in 2019. The genesis of the book was the massive societal disruption unleashed by Covid-19. At the core of the Knowledge Town thesis is the idea that a new knowledge-infused revolution is sweeping across the United States, akin to the Industrial Revolution of the 19th century, and with an equally significant impact on place, wealth, and society. The US, by dint of its highly decentralized geography and the distributed nature of its colleges and universities, is ideally positioned to lead this knowledge revolution, as long as it removes critical impediments blocking sustainable growth.
