An innovative entrepreneur identifies opportunities and creates value for their customers or clients. But innovation requires creativity; learn how these two traits go hand in hand.
Innovation is fundamental in the development of a successful business. Innovation is taking an idea and turning it into something valuable and relevant. Creativity is the ability to see the world in new ways, find hidden patterns, make connections between seemingly disparate things and generate new ideas. Innovation often drives creativity, but creativity does not always lead to innovation.
A creative and innovative entrepreneur can identify opportunities and create new value for their customers or clients. To be a creative and visionary entrepreneur, you must have the proper mindset.
This article will define that mindset and understand how to develop it.
Entrepreneurial creativity is the ability to develop new ideas and solutions to problems. It is the ability to see into the future and generate ideas, solutions and innovations before they are needed. It is the ability to solve your customer’s or client’s problems before they even realize the problem exists.
Entrepreneurial innovation is the ability to turn an idea into reality. It is about finding new ways to do things and making them better. Entrepreneurial innovation is about creating new products or services, improving processes or finding new markets for existing products or services.
Becoming a creative and innovative entrepreneur requires combining both hemispheres of your brain. Creativity is a right-brain process, while innovation is a left-brain process. Therefore, you want to learn how to work with both hemispheres of your brain and keep a balance between the two.
In today’s day and age, we are accustomed and taught to use our left brain very efficiently. However, our right brain, the key to innovation, is missing from our curriculum. Entrepreneurship already requires you to be very efficient at using your left brain. Learning to use your right brain more efficiently will enhance your creativity, so you combine it with your innovations. Let’s look at how you can be more creative to become both a creative and innovative entrepreneur.
