On behalf of the entire Duco team, I want to welcome the readers of the first issue of “The Funnel” from the private, public and academic sectors. It is really exciting to write the introductory words to a magazine that encapsulates knowledge on corporate innovation that we and others have accumulated over the years.
We wanted to create a space with professional content that could convey the right experience and tools in the non-conventional field of Innovation.
As an entrepreneur, mentor and consultant of many organizations around the world in various sectors, I am aware of the tendency of innovation to become
a festival with lots of fireworks accompanied by cynicism. Today, after developing methodologies with the world’s leading scholars and implementing
them in countless organizations, I would like to invite you to dim the flashes for a few hours, dive into the professional content that this magazine provides, and enter the world of organizations that do this in a systematic and structured manner.
Hope you’ll enjoy it (at least as much as we did when preparing it) and, of course, I and my team are all at your disposal to answer any question or request.
Here’s to many more issues!
Dan Balter, Co-Founder and Global Managing Partner @Duco
