Innovation is necessary to stay relevant in the business world today. Without adaptation and novel creation it's nearly impossible to compete on a sustainable scale. The importance of this emphasis begs the question, "how can a company foster innovation?"
An environment where ingenuity can prosper is difficult to cultivate. Most offices that house large companies have the resources to pursue novel ideas but can be so tied up with executing on existing projects (which pay the bills) that crazy ideas become less of a priority. Solo entrepreneurs have difficulty on the opposite end of the spectrum with either too many great ideas that drain the cash coffers, one that is never given up on, or a lack of resources to pursue anything at all.
That's why small to mid-sized companies have a huge advantage. In the early days of starting a company it's often a time of exploration, defining the long-term vision, and attempting to clarify what's important to maintain that vision. Moreover, each day becomes a new opportunity to innovate. Each project paving the career path of the founders and early employees. And, perhaps most importantly, those early projects create the positive cash-flow that provides a bank of resources necessary to pursue more.
But, no matter how much money's in the bank, who does the work is the critical component of developing, designing, and fabricating the prototypes. In truth, it all comes down to people. Without creative thinkers and out of the box problem solvers there would be no outlet for companies of any type to be inventive.
