The Innovators we look to for inspiration

It´s never about what you say - it´s always about what you do

Paul Polman
CEO Unilever

"This world is changing enormously. In any position in a company you need to work very hard on learning new skills every day, but you also need to unlearn some of the old skills from the past".

Ray Kurzweil
Author, computer scientist, inventor, and futurist.

"By the time we get to the 2040s, we'll be able to multiply human intelligence a billionfold. That will be a profound change that's singular in nature. Computers are going to keep getting smaller and smaller. Ultimately, they will go inside our bodies and brains and make us healthier, make us smarter".

Steve Jobs
A multitalent defying conventions 

"You can't connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something - your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life".

Michio Kaku
Theoretical physicist, futurist, and popularizer of science 

The job market of the future will consist of those jobs that robots cannot perform. Our blue-collar work is pattern recognition, making sense of what you see. Gardeners will still have jobs because every garden is different. The same goes for construction workers. The losers are white-collar workers"...

Elon Musk
Challenging everything

"The space shuttle was often used as an example of why you shouldn't even attempt to make something reusable. But one failed experiment does not invalidate the greater goal. If that was the case, we'd never have had the light bulb".

Richard Branson 
The rebel 

"You don´t learn by following rules. You learn by doing, and falling over".

Henry De Sio Jr.
Changemaker and COO of the 2008 Obama campaign

"You have to step out of your smallness and step into your bigness"
