A recent New York Times article detailed how humans can get goose bumps when we experience awe, that often-positive feeling of being in the presence of something vast that transcends our understanding of the world. It is a catalyst that can motivate people to do more good. The article also highlighted the research of Paul Piff and Dacher Keltner who found that awe helps bind us to others, motivating us to act in collaborative ways that enable strong groups and cohesive communities.
According to the latest research, 131 large corporations currently operate their own accelerator programs. Another hundred or more operate innovation labs and incubators. Clearly, companies are researching and experimenting with new technologies to find faster, more intuitive and smarter ways to beat the competition. While the accelerators and incubators have noble aims and are run with valiant effort, it does not guarantee that the corporation will succeed in finding a new product or answer to its competitive woes.
Innovatieve bedrijven investeren flink in hun onderzoeks- en ontwikkelingsactiviteiten, zo ook de negen Nieuwe Kampioenen die het FD de afgelopen weken heeft geportretteerd. Maar terwijl hun producten de grens overgaan, houden ze hun R&D-afdeling graag in de buurt.

No truer words have ever been uttered. Regardless if you work in a creative profession like writing, painting or architecture; or as an entrepreneur trying to find creative new tactics to bring new customers in, innovation’s important in all aspects of running a business.

Dit kan ervoor zorgen dat bepaald voedsel, zoals voorgesneden groenten, minder snel weggesmeten wordt en er dus minder verloren gaat.
