Business Has Only Two Functions

and Innovation

〜 Peter Drucker 〜

With the rise of Industry 4.0, the global economy is entering a process of “creative destruction”. Excellent entrepreneurs must lead enterprises to transform and upgrade in order to continuously create value. For enterprise innovation, technology itself is not an end, but a means to improve productivity. Only those who dare to innovate the entrepreneurial spirit can create a new development pattern.


The Global Academy of Innovative Enterprises (GAIE) is a non-profit organization facilitated by Nobel Laureate Prof. Shuji Nakamura to promote individual, corporate and social innovation, and sustainable development, in response to challenges of Global Industry 4.0. For a long time, people have associated innovation with the technology industry, which has alienated the true definition of innovation. To redefine innovation, GAIE will go back to basics and focus on business models that consist of four elements: products, services, solutions, and organizational leadership. In the future, we will work with you to lead the innovation revolution and advocate the transformation of innovation paradigm.

The Global Institute of Innovative Enterprises is the first professional organization in the world to develop the “Enterprise 4.0 Management Standard”, which helps enterprises and organizations to translate the principles of Industry 4.0 into effective actions to promote sustainable development. The “Enterprise 4.0 Management Standard” is not a certification standard, although it is written according to the framework of ISO 9001, it is a guiding document applicable to all organizations.
