Ep. 207 – de Oliveira on World Domination
Carlos de Oliveira is a structural engineer, inventor, designer and entrepreneur. As the co-founder of Toronto-based Cast Connex, he is a foremost expert on the design and use of steel castings in building and bridge construction.
I wanted to interview Carlos because he does great work and exemplifies what it means to choose an area of expertise where there are few competitors and develop products or services that lead one to dominate a narrow niche market.
There are literally no competitors that do what Carlos does and the story of Cast Connex is a fascinating one.
Here are a couple of awesome quotes gleaned from the interview: “Specialization can be an incredible tool for success,” and “I think of the status quo as being our biggest competitor.”
