The creation of innovative technologies and their implementation in production is a difficult and expensive process. The experience of previous industrial revolutions shows that most of the inventions required help from entrepreneurs who have invested enormous resources to turn science into business. Unlike the previous stages of industrial development, the timescale of developing idea into global business has been significantly reduced. Supporting innovation has become not only prestigious, but also profitable.
