„Innovation should be a “toothbrush” thing – to be something that people would use twice a day. Another option is to provide a solution to a global challenge or a problem. One should never base his innovation on the profit. Those who invented cars were not led by a profit but by a solution to people transportation.“ said Lothar Eckstein, member of the board of investors, for 150sec.com
