Many ideas just need a push.  The initialization of a great effort needs a supporting environment to enable forward progress.  Entrepreneurs have tough skin.  The adventure of creating something new pushes through the multiple rejections and the all and naysayers. Reality is that all ideas need an environment in which to build the idea.  The garage is the most popular place for idea incubation.  Many great companies have started that way.  Creating an innovative environment by bringing together likeminded groups trying to change the world creates and energy.  Ideas breed ideas.  Support for situational commonality refreshes and recharges individuals to continue the quest.  Creating innovative space where many “garage” efforts can incubate creates an acceleration of the additive power of the energy.  Incubators and accelerators can be found in the most interesting locations.
