We take a look at those that have successfully fostered a culture of innovation and discuss what is needed to embed innovation in your organization.

But innovation is changing, allowing companies of all sizes and from all geographies to compete with traditional multinationals, thus disrupting markets. That’s as true for emerging markets as it is for developed.
  4. Technology will change more in the next five years than the last fifty – disrupting industries from finance to retail to media and more. Over the last few years, traditional institutions have started to understand that collaboration with startups may be the best path to long-term relevance. Though these partnerships between corporates and startups is not always easy, when they work, incredible innovation can be unleashed.

Now that the precedent has been set and South Florida is still in the running, what have economic development officials learned and how will they apply this knowledge next?
  11. From banking and secure communications to healthcare and ride-sharing, Blockchain will have a huge impact on our future and cryptocurrency. No central person or company owns it. It's decentralized and distributed so that no one person can take it down or corrupt it. It's the technology of tomorrow.
