As with any idea, taking that spark and turning it into a product and a company runs into a never ending set of challenges. Early in the process, the innovation antibodies will come out in force. The one innovation antibody response that creates pause is when people you respect say that your idea is impossible. Should you go forward?
In this weeks show, guest David Levine, shares his personal story of going from being part of the innovation efforts at Hewlett-Packard and Vodafone to finding himself becoming an entrepreneur so that he can realize his idea. A role he never thought he would see himself doing.
