Innovation Has Gone Global and Is Arguably the Most Powerful Force Today

Below is an interview with Alexandre Lazarow, the author of Out-Innovate, which was recently reviewed by Irish Tech News.

Alexandre presently works with Cathay Innovation, a global firm that invests across Africa, Asia, Europe, and North America, and was previously with the Omidyar Network. Outside of his day job, he teaches impact investment and entrepreneurship at the Middlebury Institute of International Studies at Monterey.

In addition, he is a Kauffman Fellow, completed his MBA from the Harvard Business School and has a B.Comm from the University of Manitoba.

In the interview, one of his keys statements is:
Innovation is arguably the most powerful force today. In the US, 40% of publicly traded companies (representing 60% of market cap and 80% of R&D budgets) were once venture backed startups. They hold the promise not only of job creation but solving some of our thorniest problems. Innovation has gone global.
Read the entire interview about how how entrepreneurs are rewriting the rules.
