Eric B. Schultz – Innovation on Tap

Innovation on Tap is the story of innovation in America told through the eyes of 25 entrepreneurs, from Eli Whitney and his cotton gin to Lin-Manuel Miranda and his Broadway smash,Hamilton.

The stories illustrate the sweep and impact of innovation. From razor blades, insurance, and baseball to smart cities, online running communities, and cybersecurity, innovators across three centuries gather in an imaginary barroom to discuss the essential themes of entrepreneurship – Mechanization, Mass Production, Consumerism, Digitization, and Sustainability – while emphasizing and reemphasizing the importance of community to their success.

After running a social venture for 4 years myself, I find the lessons learned through experience and the direction for the future accurately laid out in this book more than in any other reference I’ve found online. yet, the writing style is accessible enough to enjoy as an audiobook that I could finish in a couple of weeks of traveling to conferences and client sites without getting lost. I also own the hardback edition, and will use the charts and templates for building an influence map myself as an immediate homework assignment.
