I have been an entrepreneur for more than a decade, and throughout that time I have always loved getting my hands dirty with building products from scratch and then commercializing them. I have a passion for innovation and not just from a managerial perspective but also from a doing perspective. I know what it means and requires to start and grow a business as well as the best tools to do just that. I have a PhD in Game Theory, have published in fields computer graphics to politics, mathematics to manufacturing, and much more. I have founded or cofounded over half a dozen companies to commercialize different technologies. I have lived in Australia, Germany and Sweden. I am a regular blogger on some of the world's biggest innovation platforms such as Innovation Excellence and Innovation Management. Reach out to me on Twitter @eshellshear.
