Another topic, which arose in our preview of innovation in 2018, was risk and aversion to risk. The implication is that people avoid innovation because they are averse to risk.

But does this make sense?

As the saying goes: “the biggest risk is not taking any!”. By identifying and exploring opportunities, we can learn more about them and “derisk” them. The paradox is that, sometimes, people do not explore opportunities, becasue what they find might not be successful!!


Let’s discuss the relationship between innovation and risk during #innochat on Twitter on February 1st, 2018 starting at 12pm Eastern time.
