Innovation Opportunities

Seeking innovative solutions for:

Problem? Meet opportunity. 

“The moment I thought I could be an inventor was when I heard Edward Jung speak at a University dinner. He said, ‘Why don’t people invent at universities?’ And his answer was so insightful: Because there isn’t an environment that rewards or fosters invention… You can’t work in a vacuum. If you have isolated yourself on an island, let other people park their boats there and build an environment that supports invention.”

Bill Walsh, veteran Xinova innovator
