“Innovation” needs fixing
Is it an “innovation” or an econovation?
True innovation must have impact. An EconovationTM is an “innovation” + measurable economic and societal impact.
What is the Econovation Score?
A social, predictive rating system and index for measuring (and analyzing) the likely future impact of a given invention or innovation.
What can be rated?
Inventions, new products and services, startups, and even legislation
The Econovation Score measures impact at three levels:
- Country: create jobs or efficiencies
- Company: create growth/profit opportunities for one or multiple companies
- Consumer: improve quality of life or solves a problem
How do category scores work?
Measured on a scale of -1 to 3, each category has qualitative and quantitative component. Below is the qualitative scoring. (The quantitative analysis will be offered as a premium service):
Overall (aggregate) scores are sums of the three category scores and will be used in creating mini scorecards.
