There is no surprise that the riskiest investment is in the field of science. The Federal government is funding research and development from many years, but the Trump government is calling back on that.

What is an invention? It is something new that has been created for human benefit. It creates a new platform that allows new possibilities that didn’t exist before. But your invention needs to be scalable; otherwise it is going to sit on the shelf for ages.

If invention is sand, then innovation is just moving this sand around. If you wish to earn money, you probably going to innovate, and not invent. Coming up with something completely new, from the scratch is a tough job. But, innovations tend to fail faster, fail cheaper and change their directions continuously. Because innovators look for something that pleases the audiences. More competitors, more innovations.
