Advancing Innovation

with Brey Tucker

If Brey Tucker was a character in The Matrix, he’d be the Oracle.

An entrepreneur, technologist, consultant, author, lecturer, and Revit savant, he is the CEO of Tucker Technology Consulting. The firm serves an array of industries & startups, guiding companies’ growth in one core way – innovation. Heck, he even tells clients to set an exclusive budget for it.

In a journey spanning his youthful fascination with a certain electronic in the 1980s, to educating us all on what an imminent, new kind of computer could look like in the coming years, Brey’s chat with Matthew is a fireworks show of insight: early VR, industry jargon, AI hacks, venture capital, fostering innovation, the Metaverse, and so much more in 90 minutes that feel like nine.
