WIForum Vision, Purpose and impact

VISION 

We, the World Innovations Forum Foundation,  envision a world where prosperity is possible in all nations, through innovation and entrepreneurship – created within each country.

PURPOSE

Recognizing how almost all of today’s developed nations started out of poverty, we saw an opportunity to share this and help other nations to follow the same, general principles of innovation an entrepreneurship. We exist to inspire entrepreneurs in developing nations to build strong businesses that solve local problems and export their solutions into global markets with similar needs. We do not help build products that we find important, like building wells, but helping local innovative minds build what the nations really need.

IMPACT

Our work, is resulting in self propelled and independently sustainable economies through innovation and entrepreneurship.

Efosa Ojomo – puts it to the point. We need to rethink development aid in general. We saw a team helping farmers in Ghana to drive and repair tractors. Some learned it others not. But when the tractor broke they didn’t try to repair it but pulled out their old wood tools. While in all good intentions – it just did not provide sustainable development help.

Our value proposition as an NGO

Countries: Create prosperity in 1,000 days by stimulating innovation and entrepreneurship!

This foundation is tasked to help any country, getting on eye-level with the most successful countries. The programs are specifically created to help countries build highly motivating and stimulating innovation ecosystems. The programs are  structured to attracts top talents locally and accelerate their innovative engagement to build robust and value creating businesses. These entrepreneurs, when keeping their headquarter in the country, will ignite prosperity in a 1,000 days, and within a few years do an IPO, be the base of a self propelling economy and sustainable prosperity. Very much like any of today’s developed nation.

Help create prosperity for all nations

Earth has prosper nations on almost all continents. There are stunning entrepreneurs from all ethnic groups. All of today’s developed countries came out of poverty, so far 15% of all nations.
We are connecting the dots: “Prosperity for all nations

Why funding us?

We developed a new understanding about the creation of prosperity. We already adapted that new way successfully, We see this as currently the only way to get all nations out of poverty. The value we add is focusing on sparking ingenuity from within a society. We are in this for the long run.

In over 100 of our own events with thousands of entrepreneurs from SMEs and fast growing startups attending, we saw yar dropping entrepreneurs from all nations. The only thing they need is motivation and the same guidance like any other entrepreneur in developed countries, plus access to capital for growth.

ADAPTING NEW WAYS
Our knowledge, how the developed countries evolved, how they started their economy and what it took to get out of poverty like Switzerland, Germany, USA, Norway, lately South Korea, Uruguay, Chile and China inspired us to rethink development aid. We adapted to new ways helping nations gain prosperity.

ERADICATING POVERTY
Self propelled economies drive prosperity and eradicate poverty and hunger. Every single developed nation is a testimony of that very fact. We created programs that help entrepreneurs and ecosystem builder to focus on generic methods of innovation and entrepreneurship rather than helping them build what the western world had already developed.

VALUE WE ADD
We inspire developing and emerging countries is rethink their their real needs and how generic innovation and entrepreneurship could help create their own country specific solutions. We work exclusively with local entrepreneurs and stakeholders to ensure that ingenuity comes from within a society and is not motivated from the outside.

LONG TERM GOAL
It’s our long term goal to provide a global network of innovative minds that observes the ever fluctuating levels of prosperity and provide support for keeping innovation and entrepreneurship up to par with all nations.

Background & Research

FOUNDERS BACKGROUND

The founders of the World Innovations Forum are coming from highly innovative and successful businesses. They know about innovation, disruption, entrepreneurship and taking companies from zero to exit.

They later worked with entrepreneurs coming to Silicon Valley from all corners of the earth to learn about entrepreneurship. The have been invited by investors, universities and governments to share their experience about entrepreneurship and innovation. That sparked eventually the questions: How important is innovation to any given society? How important are entrepreneurs from a macroeconomic point of view and how is prosperity created in the first place.

CREATING PROSPERITY

Before we started the Foundation, we were asking ourselves, what has actually happened when today’s developed nations, started to become developed nations. Why did it happen and what were the circumstances. We hoped if we find a congruent pattern, we can assume it is the pattern of prosperity creation.

All most all of today’s developed nations came out of poverty. There was no development ais and there was no plan to make that actually happening. But there was ingenuity, a wide open space to create, and people who could simply start creating what they wanted to create – out of the blue.

We realized that prosperity of a nation is connected to the agility and ingenuity of their entrepreneurs. PROSPERITY is a result of something else but not a goal one can seek – very much like wealth is a goal of some great work done.
