Welcome 2018, and your actions with "Innovating innovating..." with Yesha


As part of wishing us all healthy, productive and creative 2018 let me share with you the latest on "Innovating innovating..." and Yesha (as well as direct optional action items).

When I reflect on what drives me as well as what drives the world (perhaps what "should drive"), I can definitely say "innovation." Innovation is more than just creativity or ideas; it is the realization of these ideas into solutions that create value.

So why the two words - Innovating innovating? It is because "innovation" itself is changing. Innovation is being innovated. It needs to be innovated.

What has been innovation for the 20th century is evolving. We need new kinds of innovation, new ways to fund innovation, new platforms for innovation, new government policies, and more.

In this context, my work revolves around the various challenges of Innovating innovating...
in my main two fronts
  • Academically:
    • In my work out of Hong Kong, where I'm a visiting professor of Innovation and Venture at the Chinese University Business school, I'm looking at the leadership of innovation as well as working with the local HK/China venture ecosystem. See especially my executive courses on Digital Transformation in item 2 next. 
  • Commercially, under i8.ventures (this is my consolidated brand):
