Fixing the Power Grid through Open Markets and New Technologies

The electric power system makes our modern, mobile, information-age economy possible. But it is organized in much the same way it was in 1884, when Thomas Edison created the first system of power plants to light up homes and businesses in lower Manhattan.

Meanwhile, the electric system is still built around central generating plants delivering power to customers via a monopoly provider—the local utility company.

The consumer financial services industry currently boasts a $33.5 billion market cap globally.

Cashing In On the ‘Startup Advantage’

Cashing In On the ‘Startup Advantage’ | The Jazz of Innovation | Scoop.it
Often, even successful startups are jittery when pitching for large clients or projects, simply because they end up undermining their own strengths and feel less capable as compared to their larger and more established counterparts. But little do they realize that have a lot of value to add, simply by virtue of the fact that they are a startup. And more often than not, even prospective clients are now looking for business partners who bring the ‘startup advantage’ with them, not just in terms of lower costing, but also the nimbleness and culture of innovation that startups have come to represent.

Future Startups Will Succeed Only If They Acknowledge These Harsh Realities | The Jazz of Innovation | Scoop.it

Why Is Innovation So F*cking Difficult?

You’re an engineer. Let’s say you’re charismatic enough to have the persuasion skills to pull other engineers to you.
