Incubation of Inspiration
Looking for a quick way to locate that inspiration you misplaced? Just spend an afternoon with these folks and I'm sure they will help you find it!

CyberTech San Diego is in the business of enabling tech start-ups flourish. A little over a year ago they stood up Cyberhive, a cyber security tech start-up incubator. last Tuesday they launched iHive, their second incubator. It will focus on the Internet of Things. All those Internet enabled thermostats and such.

I'm aware of cyber security. I understand that the Internet of things will make it easy for me to control devices within my home. I attended last week's San Diego Tech Week for a completely different reason.

 The Incubator of Inspiration

I watched in amazement as entrepreneurs stepped up to pitch their ideas. They were given a very small window of opportunity to tell their story, share their vision and make a game-changing impression on the team of judges. I found it was  gob-smacking inspirational. I don't know how they did it. In my heart of hearts, I know there are days when it's all I can do to get out of bed, let along stand up and put everything on the line for an idea. How about you? What gets you fired up? How do you generate the kind of inspiration that transcends the potholes of modern business warfare? For me the choice is clear. I'm going leverage every opportunity I can to hang out with this extraordinary group of business professionals. The Brookings Institution just released a report on this phenomena titled, The Rise Of Innovation Districts: A New Geography of Innovation in America. San Diego was one of many areas of America mentioned as the new frontier, for leading us out of the Great Recession of 2008. If you find yourself feeling less than inspired about your work this holiday weekend, declare your personal independence, go find a business incubator where you live. I got my city, go get your own!
