#1 - A different approach to innovation to accelerate change, action and impact.

An interview with Maurizio Vecchione - EVP Global Good and Research at Intellectual Ventures

My guest on the podcast is Maurizio Vecchione, Executive Vice President for Global Good and Research at Intellectual Ventures.

In his day to day job, Maurizio is working for Intellectual Ventures where he’s overseeing Global Good LLC, an evergreen fund created by Bill Gates and Intellectual Ventures,

The fund is focused on inventions and innovation for the millions of people in the developing world that suffer and die each year from causes that humanity has the scientific and technical ability to solve.

During this interview, you will learn three things:

  • Why Maurizio believes the idea that all next‑gen things happen in places like Silicon Valley, is fundamentally flawed
  • How catalytic invention can be the approach to accelerate change, action, and impact – not just for the developing world, but across the board
  • Three practical criteria to embrace in the process of innovation
