In a business context, innovation is the successful generation and exploitation of new ideas which enhance business performance. A business innovation could be creating something new, changing the way you do something, modifying what you do for new markets or adapting your business to change.
An innovative-entrepreneur is anyone who is commercialising an idea or change to grow a business existing or developing. We welcome anyone from any industry who has a great idea and is passionate and motivated. What our members have in common is an innovative idea and the drive to succeed.
