“Innovation is anything, but business as usual.” (Anonymous)
Being innovative involves change. Whether it’s seeing things in a different light, or trying a new technique. Delaware may be the first state, it’s not always the first to adapt to change and embrace innovation.
The Leading Edge Fund; a recently created investment group comprised of successful business leaders, is taking on the business of investing in startups. The fund will foster innovation by investing in Delaware’s most promising early stage startups.
Finally, startups in Delaware have somewhere to turn for financial recourse. Funding has always been (and will probably always be) a struggle for any startup. What’s inspiring is that Delaware’s innovators finally have a financial ally to support them. A tool if you will, to help them transition from fledgling idea to booming business.
It’s time someone invested in the talent of Delaware, and at 1313 Innovation Center we’re excited to see it happen!
