A few months ago, I had the privilege of sitting down with Steve Blank, widely credited as the founder of the Lean Startup movement, for a fascinating podcast interview.
A company needs to be able to exploit its current core business to make a profit.
However, it also needs to have the ability to explore new innovations which might only pay off in the future.
In this future though, they will form the foundation for the next version of the core business. In effect, they pay for your future pension.
So invest in your innovation pension continuously.
