Welcome to Innovate Cincinnati! A Website dedicated to promote Innovation & Entrepreneurship in our city in every area that we're touching: Education, Government, Community, University Research, Business, Economic Development.

 

A culture of innovation provides the foundation so that people can turn ideas into results and improve communities. Innovation can be found in all industries, fields, locations and communities - not just in business, technology, engineering or the physical sciences. According to the pioneering work of Nobel Prize winner Robert Solow, technological innovation is the ultimate source of productivity and growth. It's the only proven way for economies to consistently get ahead - especially innovation born by start-up companies

My friend Mike Weppler emailed me a link to this very cool article:

Will The Midwest Become The Next Silicon Valley? 

Definitely worth reading!

And yes, Midwest has every reason to become the next Silicon Valley. There are exciting things happening here, we just need to get better organized and educated about enterpreneurship and innovation!

On Thursday, Feb. 17, SHPE Cincinnati chapter had its second networking meeting, this time at AMIS (Academy of Multilingual Immersion Studies), which has a high number of Hispanic students.

Representatives form iSPACE presented the Robotics programs that they organize, and which SHPE would like to use as the base for the Robotics Club that they want to start at AMIS.

Several kids from AMIS were able to learn more about the Robotics program and get excited about the possibilities. We hope that our SHPE Members will get involved in helping these kids in their STEM Journey.

It is a very good initiative to expose children to engineering and science in a fun way. SHPE is also looking to open same program at Lakota High School.

Cincinnati  needs to reinvent itself if we want to stay competitive in the new global economy. We are not only competing with other US cities, but also with cities around the world.

The recent report Our Region By The Numbers should be a clear wake-up call for the region and we need to do something about it very soon! 

The good news is that we have innovation experts locally, who showed how it should be done: 

As described on Amazon:

 

Blessings to Procter & Gamble—or, more exactly, its chairman and CEO, A. G. Lafley. Together with Charan, author of Know-How (2007) (and the most probable successor to management guru Peter F. Drucker), he defines, describes, draws examples of, and delineates how innovation became a part of not only the behemoth consumer-packaged-goods company but also part of Lego and Nokia (among others). Lafley is remarkably candid; the story of his “surprise” ascent to CEO-dom in 2000, taking over from Durk Jager, is the story of transformation. A number of commandments accompanied the company’s innovationcentric strategy: the consumer is boss, inside and outside cocreation is encouraged, the innovation process is tangible (and must be followed), and risks can be managed. Most important is his emphasis on human interaction as the key; even better, the last section focuses exclusively on developing a culture of innovation, from promoting the rules of brainstorming to the desired attributes for employees and leaders: courageous, connected and collaborative, curious, open. Sidebars are worthy of posting on a bulletin board; in fact, this is a sustainable reference on innovation that will be hard to beat. --Barbara Jacobs


It would be nice if our city leaders could leverage this know-how from these experts!
