by Harbrinder Kang, Senior Director, Corporate Affairs

Innovative ideas are everywhere, from Silicon Valley’s corporate offices to dorm rooms across the United States. They can be small or large; local or global; old or new. Incubators, classrooms, and garages around the world house what could be the “next big thing.”

by Austin Belisle

Our world is more connected than ever before, and these connections are increasing. Research predicts that 500 billion devices will be connected to the Internet by 2030.
