The 4th season of the TechGirl Financial podcast will be centered around Innovation and its ongoing impact at home, at work and in our communities. Despite the global pandemic that has led to economic hardship for individuals and businesses around the world, we continue to seek the silver linings brought about by adversity in the fields of health care, communications, technology, business and education to name a few.
Join us, and our special guests, this season as we explore how innovation is driving the wheels of industry and keeping our nation moving forward.
Although 2020 will be remembered as the year of the Coronavirus pandemic, behind the scenes in labs, tech incubators and companies around the world, new innovations and processes are developing that will have long lasting repercussions on our everyday lives. From deep learning to automation, 3D printing to next generation DNA sequencing, we are living in a new age of innovation. Join us as we explore 10 BIG ideas for innovation that are already making headlines and will likely make a lasting impact on how we work, play live, and engage with one another.

n the financial services industry, we often disclose that when it comes to investing, past performance is not indicative of future results. When it comes to investing in innovation, not only is this true but can provide a strategic advantage because you are investing in what CAN happen, not what HAS happened. In today’s podcast we explore the innovation premium that companies can offer by expanding their intellectual capital and investing in research and development. We talk about companies that have failed to innovate in the past, and the high price they paid for the lack of innovation, and what companies and industries are ripe for disruption in the future.
