From the maker of a wildfire-fighting drone to the inventor of a robotic roadie, we meet Beirut’s entrepreneurs to discover why they’re staying put and innovating in the face of the country’s business hurdles. Meanwhile, we ask about the future of photography and go in the search for the perfect image with Lorenz Aschoff, co-founder of Berlin-based start-up EyeEm. Plus: we visit The Collective to test out a new residential model that may offer an intriguing solution to London’s housing crisis. But can millennials be persuaded to adopt a living situation that more closely resembles a young version of a retirement community?
