The birth of the true Innovation PDF Print E-mail

As the economist and political scientist Joseph Schumpeter once stated, “the majority of economists…are ready enough to admit its [ideologies] presence, but like Marx, they find it only in others and never in themselves. They do not admit that it is an inescapable curse and vitiates economics to its core.”

Thinking in that direction isn't it that also the core of innovation?

Although in a completely different context (in relation to economical quote above), innovation is seen by many as something which only few can achieve - being the entrepreneurs turning the inventions or processes around them into innovations of their time. Doesn't that make innovation part of our surrounding environment? Innovation in both governmental and business organizations and processes, which everybody believes that stays in the hands of the lucky chance of the opportunity? Innovation in your own kitchen?

However, if few innovations are here today as the fruit of a serendipity, the truth is that in their natural occurrence they are not just a matter of luck. Saying that, can't we admit that every one can find the true entrepreneur in him/herself; The human nature of the individual has the potential to detect things that nobody else notices or sees in the same way. Because people's nature is the same in its evolutionary origins, but still very different in its varieties of characters.

Do you see the doting lines which connect objects, processes, people? Pushing it just one step ahead you can be the one to fill in the gap between the still invisible to all but perceivable in the future. Because everybody dreams about the perfect future. It is not a matter of luck to turn people's dreams into tangible realities. It is matter of courage.

The Armenian connection

Few people think of Brussels as the destination of their dreams at first (taking into account the climate as you know me you can imagine why). However, once being here one could be nicely surprised – especially if willing to openly declare him/herself as citizen of the world. I however declare myself first as a true European and then – as a true Armenian willing to explore the European culture, the culture of Armenians from Armenia and the culture of Armenians from different countries – like myself.

If you’re Armenian born in another European country and raised with the traditions of both your origins and the mentality of the local culture that’s not a rare declaration of identity. Now once again I felt the huge impact of the European identity footprint when by moving to Brussels I realized how Armenians over the globe (and yes, not only Europe or Armenia as a birthplace) could be so different and still so much alike at the same time.

If you’re part of a Diaspora like the Armenian sooner or later you discover similarities and differences thanks to your new home country and you are thankful for those. Armenians living and originating from different European countries for example could be absolutely different in mentality than the ones from Armenia, USA, Brazil. And that’s not a bad thing! However, as we have our national tendency to look for problems, we tend to forget that we share a common culture but live in different realities and share much more than just our origin – we also share the reality in which we are born, raised and educated. And in the world of today often these are more than just 1 reality.
