Key 6. Learning from the mistakes of others speeds up innovation
“While there are mistakes that cannot be anticipated, there are many others that should not be repeated. Not repeating the mistakes of others is very important.”
“You shouldn't make mistakes if you don't need to. It is not a necessary condition for success, but you need to accept that during the process there will be mistakes and problems that need to be solved.”
"Problems have to be solved if they are genuine problems in our field, but if they are models everything can be sped up. What we have learnt in the last 14 to 15 years is that these efforts by the entrepreneur can be greatly enhanced by institutions like ours, or with the support of people who are involved in the same field and are interested in innovation and its translational impact."
