Innovation Endows Resources With A New Capacity To Create Wealth

Entrepreneurs innovate. Innovation is the specific instrument of entrepreneurship. It is the act that endows resources with a new capacity to create wealth. Innovation, indeed, creates a resource. There is no such thing as a ‘resource’ until man finds a use for something in nature and then endows it with economic value. Until then, every plant is a weed and every mineral just another rock.

– Peter Drucker
