“I find out what the world needs. Then, I go ahead and invent it.”
— Thomas Edison
“Ideas are a dime a dozen” seems tenable until you need a breakthrough and can't find anyone to generate it for peanuts. Implementation is unquestionably valuable but the world is filled with companies who excel in making products that could leapfrog their competitors if they had trailblazing ideas.
Because they usually don't, they're stuck competing on price. The primary take-home message of Peter Thiel's Zero to One: Notes on Startups, or How to Build the Future is that proprietary ideas are the path to prosperity and a better world.
We develop innovation enabling manufacturers to antiquate competitors with impossible-to-predict events that come out of the blue with often catastrophic consequences, especially for those caught off guard surprises.
Kodak, Polaroid, RadioShack, Blockbuster, BlackBerry, Borders, Bell & Howell, Smith Corona, Motorola, and MySpace. Want a competitor to join this list?
