#InnovStory 2017: The Lessons

We couldn’t be more excited for this new year and the growth and lessons it will bring! We wrapped up 2017 with our #InnovStory campaign in celebration of InnovatorsBox’s two year anniversary. It was a great way to highlight the incredible stories of entrepreneurs and innovators. It was important for us to show that creativity and innovation happens across all industries - tech, education, non-profit, media, government, medicine, law, and more.

Unleash. Not Learn.

Have you ever felt like some days we’re positively buzzing with brilliant and wicked ideas, and other times our brains are jammed in molasses and no idea seems to find their way in, no matter how hard we tried? It happens to all of us. It’s like sand - the more we squeeze our hands to hold it, the less we’re left with. And we need to recognize that all the creativity that there is in the world is all inside us. We only need to open the horizons of our minds to welcome it.
