Network-driven innovation is the most important single factor creating economic growth today:
- Innovation has created two-thirds of all economic growth (study: 2000-2008, UK)
The face of Innovation is networked:
- The Internet accounts for 21% of all global GDP growth among developed nations
- Facebook is now worth more than Walmart, the world’s largest retailer
- Apple, Microsoft and Google top the list of most valued companies in US — and their activity is innovation, not new research; they do not make new discoveries.
