Innovation Leader, Entrepreneur – CP070
Gary talks with Mr. Eric Braun who has built a career as an entrepreneur; then as an ‘Innovation Leader’ within large Corporate entities (often not culturally wired for such Centers of Expertise). Eric talks about the essential characteristics of an entrepreneur, the importance of ‘context’ (the when & where) in the birth of a game changing idea; and the similarities/differences between an entrepreneur and an innovator. Finally, he shares thoughts on how important it is to really understand and accept yourself as you encounter adversity/failure as well as how you set goals and define success. This is a thoughtful discussion about the career of a kid who ‘loved to learn’ and ended up a successful tech entrepreneur, Corporate Innovation Leader and founder of several innovation hubs/initiatives.
