A recent article in Forbes magazine by Rich Karlgaard highlights the impending boom in the intelligence industry. From technology like smart phones, to a more intelligent workforce, Karlgaard argues that smarter businesses will dominate the future.

Some of today’s most successful entrepreneurs like Mark Zuckerberg have an impressively high IQ and many are now predicting that the next powerhouse industries will be those focused around making us smarter.  In his article, Karlgaard suggests that it won’t end with technology. The explosion in energy drinks has already proven that energy and health supplements to enhance performance could certainly be a part of the equation.

However it manifests, it certainly seems possible that the drive for smarter businesses and a more intelligent workforce may lead to the next trillion-dollar industry.
