  2. Julie…This is one of the best videos I’ve seen on the differences in skill sets between entrepreneurs and innovators. Excellent commentary as well on what it means to be ‘disruptive,’ and what cultural elements need to come into play to jumpstart innovation within a large organization. Thanks for sharing this on IX!

    Keep innovating,
