Making Sure That Patent Law Doesn't Suffocate Innovation | RealClearMarkets | The Jazz of Innovation | Scoop.it
As an early-stage investor in technology companies, I’m used to many kinds of risk. Does the new technology actually work? Is there a market for the new product, the new device, the new drug, the new process? Is there a business model to get a return on the investment needed to bring the product to market? Is there an entrepreneur and a team in place that can actually make the business plan happen?

Why the "murder" of the modern energy industry is key to securing a bright future

Why the "murder" of the modern energy industry is key to securing a bright future | The Jazz of Innovation | Scoop.it
Three times in the last year, I’ve sat across a boardroom from different C-Level executives in the trillion-dollar utility industry, talking about the future. A common unifying thread in these talks was that while electricity consumption may be going down, the price of everything we use to generate that electricity is going up. For the industry, energy consumption is a revenue source, while generation is a cost. See the problem?

The first industrial revolution (the transition to new manufacturing processes) and the second industrial revolution (the technological revolution) both started in Great Britain and then spread through Europe before reaching the United States and beyond.

How Corporations Benefit From Supporting Local Startups

How Corporations Benefit From Supporting Local Startups | The Jazz of Innovation | Scoop.it
Although most signs point to continued growth in the U.S., an overwhelming economic pessimism seems to have taken hold in many parts of the country. Not a day goes by that I don’t read about the roboapocalypse — the massive job loss to be wrought by automation. These are real and valid concerns to be sure. Technology today is disrupting nearly every sector at a speed that eclipses previous revolutions. But to adopt a negative view of the future, to focus on what we may plausibly lose, is to miss out on what we have the potential to gain from this coming “Third Wave” of technology, both in terms of innovations and job creation.
