Boosters for biotech in Northeast Ohio: Peter Krouse

What PNC Bank, the Northeast Ohio Media Group, The Plain Dealer and Ideastream bring together, let no polar vortex pull asunder. And with that vow, the next installment of Cleveland Connects entitled "Building on Biotech" is scheduled to go forward Monday night. As readers may recall, the original date for the public forum was to have been Jan. 6, only to have a snowstorm and dangerously cold temperatures force its postponement. The same panel of experts previously on tap will gather to discuss the breadth and depth of our region's health-related institutions, the amount of innovation they produce, and by extension, the potential for economic development.

Cleveland wins attention as hub of medical innovation

Cleveland "is going from the butt of Hollywood jokes to a hub of innovation," particuarly in the bioscience field, according to a feature from Ozy.com, which bills itself as a "daily news and culture site for the Change Generation."

The story's focal point is Jake Orville, CEO of 5-year-old Cleveland HeartLab, which has licensed several innovations from researchers at the Cleveland Clinic. To date, besides HeartLab, 66 neighboring companies have spun out from Clinic ideas since 2000, the story notes. All told, the Clinic has 525 patents and 450 licensing agreements.

Hiding Out in Ohio: Bioscience

Down the street from Jake Orville's office in downtown Cleveland you can hear the cutting of steel gears from a nearly 100-year-old manufacturer of machinery parts. Just beyond that lies Millionare's Row, a stretch of historic homes built by industrial tycoons like John Rockefeller and Wester Union founder Jeptha Wade, who dominated the city in the late 1800s and early 1900s. But in the midst of these landmarks to the city's legacy as a manufacturing powerhouse, Orville and his team are working on something Rockefeller and Wade could never have envisioned: patented technologies to test for heart disease.

Top CEOs Drive Change Through Ideas Like Promoting Dissent And Sharing Innovation Royalties

Winston Churchill once stated, “To improve is to change; to be perfect is to change often.” Leading organizations know change is essential; and yet often as risk looms, the right change can be elusive. Two organizations that have succeeded at change are Marsh & McLennan Companies, which has transformed itself to be a leader in integrated professional services with 55,000 employees driving $12.3 billion revenue, and Cleveland Clinic where 43,000 caregivers drive superior clinical outcomes in a new healthcare model. I recently talked with both CEOs about their thoughts on change and innovation.
