Innovation Olympics

The Olympic Games are no longer just for athletes and teams to showcase their physical prowess and mental toughness, let's create an "Innovation Olympics" of the future to allow business to compete, share, and innovate for world benefit!

What if every two years, the "best of the best" innovators for world benefit came together in a new geographic location for an "Olympic" summit of innovation... A place where companies big and small could collectively compete, share ideas, and dream of a better world together. The Innovation Olympics could be such a platform. Teams and businesses could compete to solve global problems and share their own stories of successful sustainability practices with others. No gold medals are given here, but simple lightbulb trophies to the most influential and impactful ideas, concepts, and applications.

I think the "Olympics" idea is great. Getting competition into the equation has its awards. People would strive harder and consequently, more innovative ideas that make business practices, process more environment-friendly would be bought to table.
