CTE Month 2014

CTE Month has come to an end, how did you celebrate?

On our Twitter account we changed our profile picture and more importantly shared CTE Facts everyday. We tried to share facts  that we thought people might not know. Facts like:

We tried to do it everyday, Monday through Friday, and we almost made it! The important thing is that we added more followers (we are up to 1,645!) and we shared the CTE story to those who might not know about it or know about it very much.

We had the opportunity to re-Tweet some good infomration from our CTE partners and help spread their message as well.

We would love to hear what you did for CTE Month 2014 and can't wait to share the CTE story with you in 2015! Share your story in the comments below.



Innovation is the application of better solutions that meet new requirements, unarticulated needs, or existing market needs. This is accomplished through more effective products, processes, services, technologies, or ideas that are readily available to markets, governments and society. The term innovation can be defined as something original and, as consequence, new that "breaks into" the market or society. One usually associates to new phenomena that are important in some way. A definition of the term, in line with these aspects, would be the following: "An innovation is something original, new, and important—in whatever field—that breaks in to (or obtains a foothold in) a market or society".
