Microsoft Innovation Center: Ένας χρόνος προσφοράς. Εκδηλώσεις για την προώθηση της καινοτομίας στην Κύπρο

Το MIC, με έδρα το Ευρωπαϊκό Πανεπιστήμιο Κύπρου στη Λευκωσία, στον ένα χρόνο λειτουργίας του διοργάνωσε διάφορες εκδηλώσεις και δραστηριότητες, όπου η καινοτομία, η σύγχρονη τεχνολογία και η ανοικτή συμμετοχή είχαν τον πρώτιστο λόγο. Σε μια εποχή που η τεχνολογία προχωρά με ραγδαία βήματα, το ΜΙC κινείται παράλληλα με τις εξελίξεις, δίνοντας την ευκαιρία σε μικρούς και μεγάλους, να διδαχθούν, να δοκιμάσουν και να συναγωνιστούν σε ένα τεχνολογικά δημιουργικό περιβάλλον.

5 Things to stop doing to enable Enterprise Innovation

The average lifespan of an S&P 500 company has decreased from 67 years (1950’s) to about 15 years (today). The market is changing faster than ever, and an organization’s ability to move at the speed of the Internet is the only chance at surviving and thriving.
For the enterprise world, the rallying cry is similar to the classic American Revolution meme, “Join or Die.” Except in today’s age, the corporate chorus says, “Innovate, or Die!” To effectively drive enterprise innovation requires effort at every level of the organization, and it requires alignment among many moving parts.

 

How This 17-Year-Old Genius Is Making More Than $30,000 Each Month on the Internet

When most teenagers want to feed their video game habit, they do one of two things. They either put out their hand and make a withdrawal from the Bank of Mom and Dad or they get a job. They flip burgers or pour coffee and they hand over their minimum wage to the clerk at the games store. Not Temper Thompson. When Temper was in eighth grade he decided he wasn't going to ask his parents for money, and he didn't want to smell of fries either. So he fired up his computer and he started online marketing. His goal was to earn $100 every month.

 

10 Rules for Success as a Woman

I often get asked to speak to groups, including women’s-oriented groups, and I often see behavior that makes me cringe. In a recent Q&A period for one such group, the host introduced a participant as working with elite speakers. So, that was my impression of her- a high-level professional woman. Then, instead of reinforcing her accomplishments or just asking me her question, she proceeded to tell me- and everyone watching- how she wasn’t planning to participate in the event, so she was sorry that she was just wearing a terrycloth sweatshirt.

 

100 Brilliant Companies to Watch in 2016

The 2016 consumer is a demanding one. They want what they want, when they want it. They want personalization, and they want control -- of their money, their food and their health, and almost everything else. As we compiled this year’s Brilliant 100, it was immediately clear that the advantages go to smart businesses that create specialized, automated experiences. Consider Qapital, a savings app that may finally trick millennials into financial stability, or Care at Hand, which can predict (and prevent) hospitalization of senior citizens.

How Real Brilliance Is Measured

Hello Pretty: the digital start up that wants to rival Etsy in South Africa

I once saw a painting called Contemplation on Emptiness, and it fulfilled me. It was so insanely gorgeous -- the colors, the subject, the pure grace of the piece -- that my soul was rocked. Unfortunately, buying it would also rock my bank account. I fought the urge. I battled my internal voice. And then, well, I snuck it into our family’s budget, and I bought it.
About 24 hours after the painting arrived, I sent the artist, Quang Ho, a note, thanking him for the joy he brought me. He responded quickly: “Thank you, Amy. Your note made me think about that piece and about pulling all the parts together and about changing course...”

Every year we do this list -- this fantastically unscientific list, in which we acknowledge 100 brilliant ideas, companies and the founders behind them. This list represents everything that is great and meaningful in entrepreneurship and living in a country that celebrates and cheers for disruption. (Gotta love an election cycle.) It’s sort of our kiss on the cheek and nod to innovation. Honestly, it’s my favorite issue of the year because it captures the spirit of what we entrepreneurs stand for: boldness, creativity and collaboration. It’s our essence, and more important, it’s your essence.

What do a bamboo watch, a gin and tonic lollipop and a pug-shaped cushion have in common? They're all part of Africa's growing e-commerce industry, which is estimated to boom in the next two years. Experts predict online shopping across the continent will be worth $50 billion in 2018, up from $8 billion in 2013. As Internet coverage expands, e-commerce could account for 10% of retail sales in Africa's largest economies by 2025.
Cape Town-based Hello Pretty, a start up describing itself as 'South Africa's largest digital marketplace', is already making headway in the industry.
