What does it need to bring innovation into the real world, fueling its business model on its own?
Of course it needs a unique idea. Or an innovative new concept to combine already known stuff, ideas, or concepts.
Is it already sufficient, or does it need more?
There is the need of capital, networks, markets, and resources to get down to these. Will it be your peers, former student colleagues, mentors, financial advisors? Or will there be more to consider, in order to accelerate the initial spark of an idea towards overwhelming business success? What has made Facebook, XING, Google, ... so great?
