We Need a Society of INNOVATORS, not just INVENTORS [Video]

Innovation = Invention + Commercialization

I wish you a great weekend of reflection on the differences between Innovation and Invention. An Inventive Society may not be rich but an Innovative Society is always rich.

Make your community innovative. Yes, Nigeria needs INNOVATORS, not just inventors who have great ideas but no products/services. We cannot be a nation like the old man in the sea who sees water everywhere but not a single drop to drink.

We need products/services – we must INNOVATE. In my Practice, we help companies and startups innovate (learn more).

Great weekend ahead.
