You may focus on the ideational parts of innovation while other companies are concerned with the implementation.

What Happened When I Broke the Rules of Entrepreneurship

What Happened When I Broke the Rules of Entrepreneurship | The Jazz of Innovation | Scoop.it
When I left my high-paying job at a successful private equity firm in San Francisco, I broke "the rules." For the first time in my life, I felt free but also very afraid. It’s every financial professional’s dream to become a partner at a private equity firm where the compensation can amount to tens of millions in a lifetime. But me? I left the partner track to move to Tulsa. No, that's not a typo. My fifth generation Native American roots were still there in my hometown where my parents had raised me 20 years before.

Our Gladiators Will Stay But Innovation Will Go Elsewhere With Roborace | The Jazz of Innovation | Scoop.it
We all knew this was coming, and we also know that this is just the start. Artificial intelligence will never stop evolving as the computing power increases with decreasing costs to apply it. Driverless cars are already a thing of the near future, and I think they are the right way to take civilisation ahead in many ways.

Innovation Needs To Shift From Disrupting Markets To Tackling Grand Challenges

Innovation Needs To Shift From Disrupting Markets To Tackling Grand Challenges | The Jazz of Innovation | Scoop.it
When Steve Jobs was trying to lure John Sculley to be Apple’s CEO in the early 1980’s, he asked him, “Do you want to sell sugar water for the rest of your life, or do you want to come with me and change the world?” Sculley would achieve little at Apple, but Jobs would later make it the most valuable company on the planet.
