Thanks to all the business leaders, scientists, students and other innovation-minded people from 80 countries that visited smartinnovation.org in 2013 in their quest for innovation best practices !
After exploring the use of megatrends for strategic planning in 2012 (http://wp.me/p2rMHi-3a) and advocating for innovation with social impact (http://wp.me/p2rMHi-3t), we started 2013 with 7-moon inspired best-practices to succeed on a rough innovation path (http://wp.me/p2rMHi-3S). We also looked at the 3D printing revolution example to encourage businesses to go out of their core markets and business model comfort zone (http://wp.me/p2rMHi-4T). Finally we covered the topic of sustainability-focused-innovation, showing how critical it was (http://wp.me/p2rMHi-5K), what leading companies and institutions were doing on that front (http://wp.me/p2rMHi-6a) and how every company could innovate more sustainably (http://wp.me/p2rMHi-9Q).
I hope that you discovered a few good ideas, applicable tools and interesting links.
Even more importantly, I hope that you felt inspired to innovate with a focus on business model change, social impact and sustainability.
More to come in 2014…

Here’s an excerpt from the blog stats 2013:
A San Francisco cable car holds 60 people. This blog was viewed about 1,900 times in 2013. If it were a cable car, it would take about 32 trips to carry that many people.
