Why do stories matter to the innovation process? What values can be instilled in innovators who share stories? How do innovation leaders inspire creators to tell and share their success and failure stories? We spoke with Richard Zreik, Co-Founder and CEO of Innovation Girls, a tech startup designed to educate and empower young girls in STEM, business, and innovation. Even as attitudes change, data from ROX shows that young girls’ confidence declines between the ages of 10 to 15, causing them to drop out of sports, math, and science. And it doesn’t stop there. Only 6.6% of Fortune 500 CEOs are female, and less than 3% of venture money is going to female founders. To tackle such large societal issues, Richard discusses how thinking big in the context of tomorrow’s technology can shift the impacts of today’s innovations. Listen in for Richard’s insights into startup failures, inspiration from youthful imaginations, and the story of your favorite podcast host’s own start as an innovation girl.
