Rachid Sefrioui @MIT Forum - Not all Innovation is Equal

With 7 startups from the Optical Components space funded by my firm, Finaventures, it was only natural that the MIT Enterprise Forum, the global voice of entrepreneurship, the platform for entrepreneurial networking, inspiration and education, asks the question: Is there a real adoption chance for all these funded Optical component startups? Are they likely to be bought by any of the reluctant Not-Invented-Here-syndrome'd major Telcos?

My public speaking keynote focused on the importance of having paradigm-shifting innovations. Not all innovation is equal!
