The difference between Invention and Innovation
In a market driven economy, the real winner is the company that can make something valuable through innovation–
not the inventor who happens to come up with something that THE MARKET may or may not want.
Innovation happens when you figure out how to make money from an invention.
Necessity is the mother of Invention
Profit motive and Creativity are the parents of Innovation!
