Innovations Paradigm

The initial value of innovation is zero !!!
The value of innovation is growing with its distribution


The act of invention is only the beginning of an entire innovation cycle. At the initial stage a patent only cost money. But the actual invention is that critical spark, for the whole innovation to come.


Innovative thinking is an art and a science. Everybody can learn it but it requires an all new discipline to practice. Openness and the ability to observe and listen is mandatory.


The value of innovation grows with the volume of its distribution. The more people can experience a benefit from an innovation, the higher its value for inventor, population and society.


Innovation value is deeply connected with its brand. A brand is the ultimate communication vehicle for searching, recommending and discussing an innovation.


Successful innovations typically requires a whole series of STAKEHOLDERS such as talents, investors, service providers, distribution channels and PREREQUISITES such as innovation friendly legislation, taxation, and infrastructure.

Innovation Development

Most successful innovations are those that find users around the world. This is not just a ‘nice to have’ – it is actually the very foundation of a prosper society.

The World Innovations Forum logo describes
the most important aspects of innovation over time.

  2. First steps to production and local business
  3. Early local growth
  4. A significant economic leap when addressing large markets
  5. Steady growth across the globe

Innovation Development

1) Innovation Creation Sphere 
Critical players next to the innovative entrepreneur:
* The government that provides an innovation friendly infrastructure such as education / universities, innovation friendly policies, innovation friendly taxation.
* Investors, such as business angels and venture capital providing the necessary funding. Should the taxation be not very innovation friendly, investors may not go full speed and provide the necessary investment
* Enabler, providing co-working spaces, Telcos providing high speed Internet, Menors and former entrepreneurs providing advice, Universities providing entrepreneurs programs and top level subject matter specific education.

2) Innovation Value Sphere
Critical players using and embracing an innovation:
* Talented workforce that can produce the innovative solution, in time with quality and at reasonable cost.
* An open minded society that is actually using the new products, provide feedback and supports their innovation heros.
* Export organizations, distributors and dealer networks that bring those solutions into the respective countries. Also those nations and their society will benefit from the innovative solution. The will contribute the biggest part of the revenue and with it profitability and prosperity in the country of origin.

Innovation Economics

Analyzing key drivers for prosperity we could boil it down to one value: Export Volume. Export-Volume per capita is an amazing list to verify that thinking. Prosperity of a whole population is in direct correlation with its export power.
