David Rowan on what sets real innovators apart

“Innovation is not a repeatable formula. Innovation is this messy thing that depends on the culture of the organisation; its heritage and its values.”

In this week’s podcast, Carlos is joined by David Rowan, Founding Editor-in-chief of WIRED UK as he walks through the professional journey that fueled the creation of his new book: “Non-Bullshit Innovation: Radical Ideas from the World’s Smartest Minds”.

From DJ-ing at a pirate radio station to interning at The Times and eventually going on to lead WIRED UK, David has always had an entrepreneurial approach to journalism.

Tune in to discover how after eight years at WIRED and angel investing in 58 startups, including Improbable, David followed his curiosity to discover what sets real innovators apart.
