The everlasting crisis and its impact on EU

In Europe, we are living challenging times and seem not to see the end. Greece has "gone down", as may Italy, and other countries. As a global world, what happens in Europe impacts the rest of the world. To what extent? What are potential solutions? How can businesses and entrepreneurs survive in these times?

Also related... the 99% or indignado movements that are now global... will they make a change? Are banks reacting? How is this all shaping banks, crisis, and the idea that things can no longer go as they have before.

Health and Wellness Industry

Health and Wellness has been a significant buzz word for close to a decade, with reports that it will soon exceed a trillion dollars and become an "industry" onto itself. Yet, in the last 10 years, health and wellness seems to be very siloed and fragmented with major players "staying in their own lanes". At best, the world has only seen very incremental innovation in health and wellness products/services, rather than the disruptive business models that the world has seen in other industries, represented by Apple, Amazon and others. How do we apply principles from the companies who are true innovators to create more meaningful businesses of scale in health and wellness?

Food scarcity

Supermarkets and restaurants (particularly in urbanized areas in the US) waste anywhere from 25-40% of the food they purchase even though much of that is still fresh and good. A TV show on Food network called "The Big Waste" looks at this issue. Finding a way to create a secondary market for such food that is efficienct enough to re-capture this "waste" would be tremendous.
