When some of the world´s brightest people and biggest companies unite, there must be an urgency to solve a bigger problem. In order to build a smarter, more sustainable future for the planet, a far-reaching multidisciplinary effort is needed to speed up the rate of greentech innovation together – and to finance the economies of the future.
Right now, there is an innovation-based industrial revolution going on to re-shape our world for the better.
Unfortunately, it´s happening too slow. Innovations and new technologies take too long to enter the market and to then scale in a meaningful way. Capital, capabilities (know-how) and connections are the greatest limiting factors. The result:
• 90% of new startups fail.• 75% of venture-backed startups fail.• Under 50% of businesses make it to their fifth year.• Only 40% of startups actually turn a profit.• 82% of businesses that fail do so because of cash flow problems.
Just by looking at such statistics, it´s tempting to jump to the conclusion that so many startups fail because their products and services are not good enough for widespread adoption in free market economies. However, the reality is that in many cases it´s not the innovation being flawed or unfeasible but entrepreneurs simply lacking the above mentioned three Cs (Capital + Capabilities + Connections).
Fortunately, we are witnessing a growing number of imaginative people, resourceful companies and supportive governments get their act together to accelerate and grow greentech innovation and commercialization. A new approach is taken – one that spins a network of expertise and capital never seen before in the history of industrial mega-trends. For the first time ever, the world is uniting in an effort to solve a common problem for the benefit of everybody.
