In this podcast episode we talked with Chris Turner, Managing Director of Springwise. Springwise is a global community of new business ideas, spotted by the community. Chris has been following trends and innovation for some time and with a global perspective he shares his insights with us.

For entrepreneurs trends are a powerful force and there are obvious benefits from being able to spot new markets emerging. However with trends there may also be other more important factors to take into account, than focusing solely on trends themselves. We talked about trends in general and the use of predicting future trends. Also we touched on what’s going on right now, how entrepreneurship is evolving and startups and the startup space.
