In the November issue of Fast Company you’ll find “Why, with so many businesses thinking small, the World Needs Big Ideas”. I love big ideas and, as a manager, often saw proof of the Goethe quote:
“Dream no small dreams for they have no power to move the hearts of men.”
Big idea projects also raise fascinating challenges for entrepreneurs and business people.
First, a few examples of inspiring Big Ideas sited in the Fast Company article:
- Sage Bionetworks: Accelerate biomedical discoveries by creating a system for open sourcing biomedical research data — thereby giving researchers access to thousands of times more data than they could collect on their own.
- Waste Enterprisers: Turning human waste in to biofuel, solving huge widespread cost, environmental, time and dignity issues.
- Terrapower: Unlimited safe energy from depleted uranium.
