The logics of innovation

"Every generation innovates around a need that's relevant for the time. When my parents were growing up, there was a vitamin D deficiency, so somebody came up with fortified milk. It always starts with entrepreneurs and then becomes part of big companies. Nestlé started because its founder was a pediatrician whose wife had trouble breast-feeding, so now we have milk formula."
-- J. Darius Bikoff, Founder Glacéau Vitaminwater
