Innovation appears to be an irrational act. After all, most ideas fail to achieve any kind of commercial success. 50 percent of new businesses fail in their first four years. 75 percent of companies that receive venture capital investment never return any capital to their investments. Most corporations have innovation success rates ranging from 10 to 20 percent.

It’s natural to think that these poor success rates result from the failure to generate good ideas. However, what distinguishes success from failure isn’t the quality of the initial idea. It is the process by which an idea gets translated into impact.

In this Master Class, Innosight Managing Partner Scott Anthony will describe how to beat the odds when launching a new venture. He will draw on his company’s unique experience advising some of the world’s most innovative companies and investing in and incubating startup businesses in the U.S., Singapore, India, China, and Indonesia.
