A fun and educational Game Show about innovation, investment, and those parts of human nature that slow (or even stop) successful ventures. Join us as we challenge the world to share their "new" ideas while we race the clock to prove they are NOT NEW. Learn to Explore, Pivot, and Leapfrog, and most importantly how to fail fast to succeed faster.
Episode Eight: Innovation "Ecosystem"
Learn why the common phrase "Innovation Ecosystem" leads to some useful insights about the funding of research and development. Spoiler alert: it's not the best description of what's usually going on.
Dive further into understanding the J-Curve and why it is so vitally important to remember that innovation includes commercialisation. Also we talk about risk and a reminder that we should be overjoyed to discover we are not the first to do something - a bruised ego is a small price for avoiding a pile of risk.
Episode 7: The Barrow Boys Business Model
In this episode we show you one more reason why it is important to get objective, independent, evidence-based validation of your idea before you start - "Barrow Boys" are more than happy to profit from a business model that benefits from the deepest, longest dives into dilution and debt that they can encourage you to take. But winners are almost without exception the ones that get to market fastest and with the least investment burden.
Episode 6: You Down with UVP?
We have completed the "storyte.ch" process, shout out to them for a great self-service programme.
Our new, improved story is all about the Unique Value Proposition - but not the exaggerated bluster we too often see people blowing during their "elevator pitch". We are all about evidence-based UVP. Join us and we will help co-write "My Unicorn: The Prequel", even if it turns out to be more like a gazelle, which are awesome!
Learn how we do things differently in this sixth episode of Invented Again.
Episode Five: The Idea Pipeline and Our New Charter!
Note that we will henceforth split "IP Snaps" into their own episodes for easier navigation.
Explore "The Hydraulic Analogy" of Ideas with us - aka "The Idea Pipeline".
A clear ethical line is drawn: We reveal our Charter and invite your feedback and your commitment.
We review the Principles that a good "Looker" adheres to.
We explain how the "Product" of our service is structured (a Chronology or Story) and why it makes it more valuable than any other format.
Episode Four: Startup Odds - Effective versus Efficient
We talk about some of the problems with Ideation, how we tend to do it, and how we fund it. We also focus on how it is not just businesses but also government who needs this process.
IP Snap: What to do with Plastic Waste after our customer for it stops taking it.
Episode Three: Investment and the "Circle of Competence"
We explore investment, and look to two of the best in the game: Warren Buffet and Charlie Munger. What is the "Circle of Competence" that they often talk about? Learn why it is important to avoid the "inventor fantasy", focus on exploiting existing knowledge first.
IP Snaps: The Portable Boxing Ring, The Springfree Trampoline, and the Rivet as Bicycle Tire Puncture Fix
Discover a strange and coincidental connection between 2 of these snaps! Open the practically infinite toolbox instead of relying on just your hammer. Learn a couple of new ways to get involved at Invented Again. All this and more in Episode Three!
