Mid 2018-- tariffs, threatened boycotts, unsettling trust-based scrutiny, talent mobility hindrances, wasteful diversions of cash flow-- all like water seeking a new route, the combined uncertainty is creeping in to affect how new ideas will be commercialized or not. Posturing politics trumps breakthrough science forcing sub optimizing businesses to adapt to a painful new world creating new winners and losers not based on a meritocracy of ideas. Hard to see the upside? Or maybe the seismic jolt will steady out for another century. One thing is sure, the restless minds of innovators pressed by massive negative environmental conditions- survival- the mother of all invention- will press ahead like water always finding the ocean. Innovators might flock to different innovation hubs around the world as commercialization thrives in open collaboration.

This month's featured members are all helping us move faster and more creatively- from camera based identity to make routine chores easier to chip based brains that connect mobility to the ride of a lifetime on TLT board, these examples show why innovation only thrives with open minds, open borders and open wallets.

The curated I-Hub provides resources to commercialize and monetize Intellectual Property, and to access software, events, novel databases, special reports, government resources, in-the-pulse blogs, and innovation leader presentations.

As always, we invite all readers to join our intellectual property marketplace, free of charge, and engage the community and to attend one of the over 100 global conferences we will support this year to personally engage the change agents.

Join and get One-Click-Closer® to being our next success story.
