About 3.0 Leaders - Innovation & Investment
In our increasingly global and entrepreneurial world and across sectors, we are more connected than ever. Around the world, societies newly empowered by technology are leap frogging those long established, and are becoming areas of investment in contrast to their needing assistance. Cities, regions and even countries are discovering how public/private partnerships accelerate innovation and growth and how the concept of impact investing is changing the landscape of funding innovation and change.
Being smart is crucial and time is at a premium as powerful new ideas include building Smart Cities and defining how Smart Growth is unique to the place. Innovation districts are creating an environment and atmosphere of collaboration that empowers their citizens to live, work and play as they choose. Corporate innovation is happening outside the corporate walls, in new spaces designed for innovation, and often, in partnership with entrepreneurs and startups.
