When it comes to innovation, the problem is not a lack of new technologies, but rather that they are often not effectively translated into products or services that can be deployed to solve the real problems. We support technology entrepreneurship that enables innovation that addresses specific global needs and the formation of new enterprises that take these technology-based solutions to market.
