Innovation vs. Invention

This article distinguishes between invention – turning money into ideas – and innovation – turning ideas into money.  (I’m not sure I would use the terms that way, but there’s an important distinction between idea-generation and commercialization.)  Lately I’ve seen a few instances were individuals come up with ideas that they themselves don’t want to commercialize, the latest being my unbelievably healthy ice cream recipe.  I wonder if there’s some way to connect random people who come up with ideas with the folks who actually want to work on them?
