From idea to business

Fall in love with the problem, not one specific solution. Framestorming before brainstorming. And there is a grain of sense even in the craziest ideas.

During her lecture, "From Inspiration to Implementation – How to bring your ideas to life", she presented her model – The Invention Cycle.
