After 10 years of mapping innovation ecosystems across the world, we now know that entrepreneurship and innovation are absolutely everywhere! We have learned that local innovation plays a crucial role in solving some of the most complex issues of our time. 

The problem is no longer how to find the next big idea, because to a significant extent, we have the solutions and the technology we need. We have mapped them, we have seen them; they are out there.

The challenge now becomes: How do we get them implemented quickly and sustainably?
